Date posted: Thu Feb 14 11:10:01 PST 2008
Patch name: update/pda023.001
Description: Wildcards in pathnames are expanded by directory using the old regular expression API. A form like
(directory "d++xxx-this-pathname-does-not-exist-xxx.*")
should be valid and not cause an error. With this patch it returns nil (assuming there are no matches for that wildcard).

Patch name: update/agraph/2.1/pdo011.001
Description:Corrects the reasoner's handling of rdf:type queries when neither the subject nor the object is specified. The reasoner was mistakenly caching the same value for each subject instead of a different value for each subject. This caused it to return duplicate results instead of the correct ones.

Patch name: agraph/tutorial-files/kennedy.ntriples
Description:This patch updates the tutorial file kennedy.ntriples. The initial ntriple file shipped with the distribution could not be used for the range query examples because its triples had objects that could not be encoded. The new file has the same information but its triples can be encoded and range queries will work correctly.

Patch name: update/agraph/2.1/pdo006.001
Description:Corrects a bug in get-triple-by-id wherein it would fail to return the correct triple for IDs less than 256 if the triple-store large.
Impact: recommended

agraph patch
Date posted: Fri Jul 13 11:43:29 PDT 2007
Patch name: update/agraph/2.1/pdo005.001
Description:

Triple-stores created or opened with relative-pathnames such as

(create-triple-store "./data")

or

(open-triple-store "data" :directory "./testing/")

could cause AllegroGraph to lose track of the correct location of the triple-store and its data file. Triple-stores created with absolute path-names were, and continue to be, completely safe.

Impact: recommended

Impact: recommended

agraph patch
Date posted: Fri Jun 29 15:18:44 PDT 2007
Patch name: update/agraph/2.1/pdo004.001
Description:Corrects a bug where the task-manager could be become confused when too many equivalent tasked were scheduled too quickly (for example, if the same triple-store was asked to check indices too often). When this happens, the triple-store in question would refuse to close because it was waiting for tasks that no longer existed to complete.
Impact: recommended

agraph patch
Date posted: Fri Jun 29 15:18:44 PDT 2007
Patch name: update/agraph/2.1/pdo003.001
Description: Corrects an indexing bug that caused an occasional triple in an index file to be duplicated and another triple dropped. Index files created in AllegroGraph 2.1 before this patch should be recreated after installing the patch. Executing the following form while the store is open will accomplish this:
 (progn (add-indices (drop-indices (triple-store-indices)))
        (index-all-triples :wait t))
Alternatively, the entire graph should be recreated.
Impact: recommended

cg patch
Date posted: Thu May 31 16:36:01 PDT 2007
Patch name: code/cg-printing.003
Description:A set of CG patches were posted at the end of March 2007 to solve corruption problems with certain usages of with-stack-fobject. Due to an unrelated glitch in the cg-printing module, the patch to that module can cause printing hardcopy to get a segmentation violation, or even to crash lisp. This is a very simple fix to remove the glitch.
Impact: recommended

cg patch
Date posted: Wed May 9 10:15:29 PDT 2007
Patch name: code/cg-grid-widget.002
Description:Adds the grid-widget option cache-cell-values to cache cell values that have been read. Cell values can be uncached via clear-cached-cell-values, at which point the cell value will once again be read from the real application data. A single cell can be uncached with clear-cache-cell-value. This is useful for efficiency if any read-cell-value methods or data-reader functions takes significant time. Also new is the delay-write-cell-value option to delay calling application write-cell-value methods after the user modifies a grid-widget until the application either calls write-delayed-cell-values to write all of the values, or calls clear-delayed-cell-values to cancel the pending writes. This allows an application to ask the user to confirm or cancel a set of changes before they are written.

Description:This patch changes quite a few Windows API foreign functions from :release-heap :when-ok to :release-heap :never. This change is being supplied as a patch mostly to avoid a problem where some arguments passed by Common Graphics were not really stack-allocated as expected. This could lead to corruption when the foreign call released the heap and allowed a scavenge to move to arguments. These changes are also generally being made for the next release for efficiency reasons.

Description:This patch distinguishes a foreign entry-vec that has been defined via a def-foreign-call with a :convention of :fortran by setting a bit in the entry-vec's flags word. This allows the runtime to distinguish and accommodate the subtle differences in parameter passing between fortran and C - notably the 32-bit integer arguments in a 64-bit big-endian lisp.

Patch name: update/pdl008.001
Description:IDE windows could be left partly or fully off the screen, or otherwise badly placed if the screen size changes and you then start the IDE when it is configured to remember most recent window positions. With this patch, a different set of window positions and size will be saved for each screen resolution that is used; if nothing is found for the current screen size, then windows are created at their default positions and sizes. The screen size can change for example when using Remote Desktop or when attaching an auxilliary monitor to a laptop.

Description: Makes the following fixes:

On some operating systems (Mac OS X, FreeBSD, Tru64, and HP/UX), when a socket connection failed, the error generated would indicate the cause of the error was "Invalid argument" (EINVAL) rather than indicating the real problem. This patch fixes that bug.

Under rare circumstances, in images that use MP and are being restarted, there can be an internal error that causes the image to fail. This problem is also fixed.

This performance patch shortens the time required to set up file descriptors to be waited on, so that when they are always ready there is no real wait.

Description:When the default locale of a Windows system is Japanese and the font in a text-edit-pane is FixedSys/Japanese, then the mouse wheel would not scroll quite to the bottom of the page.

ide patch
Date posted: Wed Jan 17 20:57:56 PST 2007
Patch name: code/ide-project.006
Description:

The IDE's Build Project Distribution will fail if the runtime-modules list of the project contains a full-fasl patched cg.foo module BEFORE the :cg.base module. This normally doesn't happen because the runtime-modules of a project are normally kept in alphabetical order when set interactively in the Project Manager, either by using the Find Required CG Modules button or by toggling individual modules on and off. It may be possible to encounter this problem if manually modifying the current projects set of runtime modules via a form like

(push :cg.html-dialog (runtime-modules (current-project)))

This patch also fixes a problem where doing a Find In Files on the current project searched the immediate child projects of the current project but not their further descendent projects. Similarly, the Find Required CG Modules facility included modules required by the current project and its immediate child projects, but not their further descendent projects.

Description:When calling pop-up-replace-dialog, as the Search | Replace command does in the IDE, the widgets for the search string and the replace string are combo-boxes that are intended to remember the strings that the user has entered. These widgets never collected any strings, however, because the dialog was inadvertently recreated every time it was invoked. This patch causes the Replace dialog to be reused.

base patch
Date posted: Mon Jan 8 15:05:18 PST 2007
Patch names: code/ef-e-anynl.fasl (version 0),
code/efmacs.001
Description:

Adds new series of composing external-formats: :e-anynl-unix, :e-anynl-dos, :e-anynl-mac. These external-formats cause any of ascii 13, ascii 10, or ascii 13/10 combination to be converted to #Newline on input via read-char (or read-char equivalents such as read-sequence, peek-char, etc.).

The prefered way to use this new functionality is through the eol-convention function.

 (setf (eol-convention stream) :anynl)

causes the external-format of stream to be set so that ascii 13, ascii 10, or the ascii 13/10 combination will be converted to #Newline on input. Output (e.g., via write-char, write-sequence, etc.) is unchanged.

You can combine an :anynl input eol-convention with any of the standard eol-conventions for output as follows:

 The following sets anynl for input, unix mode (#newline ->
 ;; ascii 10) for output.
 ;; 
 (setf (eol-convention stream) :anynl-unix)

 ;; The following sets anynl for input, mac mode (#newline -> ascii 13)
 ;; for output.
 ;; 
 (setf (eol-convention stream) :anynl-mac)

 ;; The following sets anynl for input, dos mode (#newline -> ascii 13/10)
 ;; for output.
 ;; 
 (setf (eol-convention stream) :anynl-dos)

This patch is intended to be fully included in the forthcoming Allegro CL. Note, however, that if you are planning to generate an application including this patch's functionality, then you should ensure the following form is evaluated at application build time:

shared-library patch for all-linux only
Date posted: Thu Dec 7 17:04:55 PST 2006
Patch names: libacli8010.so (version 682),
libacl8010.so
Description: Increases the number of file descriptors that are allowed to be open to 65536. In practice, when these represent sockets, there are other limitations that might take effect, such as the Local Port Range - for information on configuring your linux system for such further limitations, see http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/condorg/linux_scalability.html. These limits are not likely to affect servers, which tend to listen on only one port, but if multiple clients are run or simulated on the same host, such limits are more likely to show up. At any rate, with this patch the lisp should no longer be the limiting factor.

Patch name: code/cg-paren-matching.003
Description:Evaluating RDNZL forms in the IDE's listener or editor did not work properly because the IDE's code that parses the source code for parenthesis matching, indentation, and colorization contained old "superbracket" code that interpreted the square brackets a different way. This patch removes that old code to fix the main problem, and also handles square brackets just as it does parentheses, which allows using editor commands such as forward-sexp (alt-rightarrow) on bracketed forms.

Date posted: Mon Oct 30 16:08:44 PST 2006
Patch name: code/cg-rich-edit-pane.001
Description:The patch code/cg-text-edit-pane.003 sped up mouse wheel scrolling in text-edit-panes by doing standard mouse wheel scrolling in CG that override's Microsoft's slower scrolling style that's built into the RichEdit control. This behavior was inadvertently inherited by the rich-edit-pane class, where it does not work, causing mouse wheel scrolling to break in a rich-edit-pane. This patch reverts rich-edit-panes to their original behavior.

Description:

A significant shared library update that fixes multiple problems across multiple platforms.

For platforms: linux86, freebsd, and all windows

Fixes a bug with how comparisons with NaNs are done; previously some hardware and kernel levels would cause such trapped comparisons to fail and to cause a system error in the lisp.

For platforms: linuxamd64.64

Fix startup problems for images greater than 4Gb in size.

All platforms

Under rare circumstances, most likely during an application-system build, the code loading foreign libraries could fail to forward a pointer, resulting in a gc failure and application crash in a subsequent global gc. This patch corrects the problem.

Patch name: code/loop.001
Description:Adds macro-level type propagation to the for-across and do-repeat loop forms, so that when the vector variable in the former and the repeat variable in the latter have been given a declaration, the loop macroexpansion will provide that declaration to the gensym that is created rather than to provide a more general and less helpful vector or real declaration, respectively. Obviously, this results in faster compiled loop code in these situations.
Impact: minor
Other info:Recommended. Recompilation of affected code is necessary in order to see the change.

Description: This patch is an upgrade of the SOAP module and includes many bug fixes and new features:
  • Several extensions to make-client-interface and make-server-interface refined null element and empty element behavior features that allow several WSDL definitions to be combined into one Lisp image.
  • Handle <include> and <import> Schema components.
  • Attributes can be defined in element and type definitions.

ide patch
Date posted: Thu Sep 21 16:32:38 PDT 2006
Patch name: code/ide-project.005
Description: Makes the following two fixes
  • If the current project gets compiled, and this compiles files in a subproject and there are compiler warnings for the subproject, then the warnings would appear in one dialog for the subproject and again in a dialog for the main project. This patch collects all compiler warnings into a single dialog when there are subprojects.
  • If you move the directory of one project and then open another project that has the first project as a subproject, and the IDE prompts you to locate the missing subproject and you do so, the subproject still would not get added back as a subproject of the main project.

Description:If a text-edit-pane such as a pane in the IDE editor is scrolled so a partial line is visible at the top of the window, certain actions such as 'Edit | Reindent' or 'Tools | Incrmental Compile' in the IDE editor could shift the text so that it is aligned at the top, but without redrawing the text at its new position. This could show the text cursor as being partway between two lines, or show part of the text not lined up with the rest of the text.

Description:

New excl.osi:getloadavg function for retrieving load average information on unix systems.

AIX user: This patch adds a new dependency to the perfstat and libperfstat filesets. Without these filesets, lisp will not start, typically failing with a dlopen() error indicating a "bad address". Install bos.perf.perfstat and bos.perf.libperfstat filesets. These should be available on your AIX installation media.

You can check if these modules are installed by executing the following commands:

   lslpp -achq bos.perf.perfstat
   lslpp -achq bos.perf.libperfstat

If one or both filesets are not installed, you should receive a message indicating such.

ide patch
Date posted: Thu Sep 21 16:32:38 PDT 2006
Patch name: update/pdl007.001
Description:The Extended Toolbar was getting created on the screen, and so could get buried behind the whole IDE. Also, it is a "palette" window that doesn't appear on the taskbar or in the alt-tab window on the Windows platform, so there was no way to get it back once it got buried (other than by shrinking all apps that are covering it).
Impact: recommended

Patch name: update/pdl006.001
Description:The IDE's "About" dialog needlessly used a palette, which broke on the GTK platform (Linux) because window palettes are not implemented there in CG yet.
Impact: minor

base patch for mswindows only
Date posted: Thu Sep 21 16:32:38 PDT 2006
Patch name: code/winapi.001
Description: This patch fixes the following two bugs.
  • A simple garbage problem where win:special-windows-directory did not free its C buffer that holds the returned string
  • network-machines often returned no machines, due to traversing only the first leg of each branch of the network tree. The typical symptom was that the CG dialog invoked by ask-user-for-new-or-existing-pathname contained no networked machines.
  • The newly exported variable win:*search-network-globally* now defaults to nil instead of t to avoid delays when searching the network outside the "current context".

base patch
Date posted: Wed Sep 13 17:16:56 PDT 2006
Patch name: code/hash.004
Description:Fixes a longstanding bug in the "primification" of hash-table sizes--hash-tables must be of sizes that are prime with respect to the hash-codes that are being generated, otherwise many conflicts might arise. The previous method of trying to make the next size as prime as possible was not working as expected and resulted in certain hash-table sizes that were very slow because the size had factors of 3, 5, and 7 within them. This patch makes truly prime sizes for a large range of hash-table sizes (up to most-positive-fixnum on 32-bit lisps, and up to (expt 2 48) on 64-bit lisps, after which the older "almost-primify" algorithm is used. This should result in much more consistent performance in hash-tables, always on the faster side. In addition, a hash-table statistical analysis function, excl::hash-table-stats, is made available in all lisp images; to run, simply call this function with a hash-table as its only argument. If more info is needed, contact Franz Inc.

Date posted: Wed Sep 13 17:16:56 PDT 2006
Patch name: code/prolog.003
Description:Adds some new features and bug fixes
  • Updates Allegro Prolog to release 1.0.1.
  • Fixed some dynamic-extent problems when executing the prolog macro from interpreted Lisp code.
  • Fixed incorrect operation of not/1 when not opencoded.
  • Removed certain hazards when leashing builtin functors, and when leashing a functor multiple times.
  • The prolog macro reliably returns nil if it completes without nonlocal exit.

Description:The newer native versions of the RichEdit 1.0 DLL that the previous version of this patch began using has a default mouse wheel scrolling behavior that is rather slow, scrolling each of the three lines of one scroll notch independently, and doing so at a limited maximum speed. This patch overrides the behavior that's built into the Microsoft control with CG code that implements standard mouse wheel scrolling.

Patch name: code/pdk007.001
Description:If you try to move the keyboard focus to a window that's in a hierarchy whose uppermost window is a shrunk (hidden) non-parent owner window, CG would decide not to move the focus there because it erroneously believed that the owned window must be hidden like the owner window. This could happen when calling set-focus programmatically or even when alt-tabbing back to an application that uses a shrunk non-parent owner window.

Description:

Code in immigrant callback handling contained a non-serialized modification of the scheduler queues, which could eventually result in corruption of the queue.

Dumping an image that has a pending timeout yields an image that will reinstate that timeout when multiprocessing is started, but referencing an invalid thread. When the timeout triggers (at the same real time as the timeout in the before-dump image) it can cause arbitrary errors, including a total crash of the lisp. This can be at the time multiprocessing is started in the new image, should that be after the real time of the captured timeout.

Date posted: Wed Jun 14 09:57:44 PDT 2006
Patch names: code/ntservice.001,

Description:

There has been a long standing problem with running applications as a service on Windows: manually stopping the service with the tray icon or close button on the window must be done twice. This patch fixes this problem. There is one incompatible change in the `ntservice' module, however: the ntservice:execute-service function takes another required argument.

The function ntservice:execute-service has a new keyword argument, shutdown, which can be used to control the behavior of the service during a shutdown of the operating system.

Please read the ntservice documentation for more information on how to make an application run as a service on Windows.

Impact: recommended
Other info:This patch corrects problems which prevented the ntservice module from working on the windows.64 port.

Description:On GTK, the functions cg:invoke-html-browser and cg:invoke-private-html-browser had simply deferred to using Common Graphics HTML browser because we didn't have a feasible way of invoking a standalone HTML browser program on Linux. However, we continue to have problems making the CG widget work on GTK (where it is based on a GTK widget from Mozilla), so this patch makes invoke-(private-)html-browser attempt to invoke a standalone Firefox browser by calling run-shell-command. If that fails, then it places the URL or file path onto the system clipboard so that you can paste it into an HTML browser program.

cg/ide patch for mswindows only
Date posted: Fri Jun 2 10:33:06 PDT 2006
Patch names: code/ide-project.004,
code/cg-text-edit-pane.002,
code/cg-message-dialog.001
Description:

This patch causes CG to no longer load the RichEdit DLL (aclre32.dll) that is shipped with Allegro, instead using the RichEdit DLL that is installed on the local OS, as applications generally would do.

If an application needs to cancel the effect of this patch, it should set the value of excl::*use-aclre32.dll* to a non-nil value. This variable needs to be set before starting the IDE or before creating any text-edit-panes in a standalone CG app. To set the variable before an IDE image starts up the IDE, it needs to be set in a clinit.cl (or .clinit.cl) file.

Other files included in this patch prevent the copying of Allegro's aclre32.dll when generating a runtime application, and to adjust the width of mesage dialogs to avoid unnecessary wrapping of words due to a change in the margin of message dialogs on the set of currently supported windows platforms.

Description:

Fixes a bug in the building mode of the lisp, where it did not test for the presence of DEP protection - this testing already occurs when a lisp image is being restarted but not while building. Thus, calls to generate-application or build-lisp-image with a .pll file would fail.

Fixes a bug where immediate-args :lisp specifications are not honored. For example, when a fixnum is passed into an immediate-args function, with the bug present it is always converted to a machine-integer, even if :lisp was specified (which should cause it to be left alone). note: immediate-args is not officially documented, but we always provide customers with the unofficial documentation when asked.

Impact: recommended
Other info:Affects users attempting to build new images or applications on systems with DEP enabled.

ide patch
Date posted: Tue May 9 16:25:12 PDT 2006
Patch name: update/pdl003.001
Description:Calling a function like read or read-line to do a read in an IDE listener that waits for the user to type input there consumed all of the available CPU time. It cannot block in the usual way (on Windows) by sitting in a call to GetMessage because, in the multiprocessing design of the IDE, the read is being done in a different process than the one that receives the window's events. A polling loop instead. The fix inserts a call to (sleep 0.1) into the loop to avoid hogging the CPU.
Impact: recommended

ide patch
Date posted: Tue May 9 16:25:12 PDT 2006
Patch name: code/ide-project.003
Description:

If you changed the open-project-action IDE configuration to :full-compile (from the default of :compile), then an Open Project command would compile the project twice. This is typically set on the Project tab of the Options dialog. The compiles were done in two separate processes, which might cause unpredictable problems in addition to the extra time.

This patch also fixes a more obscure problem where an infinite loop occurred if you set the open-project-action option to :no-compile and then open a project that has a subproject.

Lastly, this patch fixes a bug where a break occurred if you add a file from the editor to a project and elect to copy the file into the project's directory, but there's already a file of the same name in the project's directory, and you cancel when given further options.

cg patch
Date posted: Wed May 3 16:50:27 PDT 2006
Patch name: update/pdk005.001
Description:When the IDE's Restarts dialog is invoked, it calls release-mouse to undo any capture-mouse that user code might have done, and which could interfere with debugging while the capture is still on the stack. Under GTK on Linux, Common Graphics did not ensure that it was not ungrabbing the mouse for a window that had not grabbed it. Doing so seems to corrupt the GTK environment. The symptom on some versions of GTK and/or Linux was that the IDE would freeze when the Restarts dialog should appear. The fix ensures that CG never ungrabs the mouse except for the window that GTK says currently has grabbed the mouse.

cg patch for mswindows only
Date posted: Wed Apr 26 13:32:21 PDT 2006
Patch names: code/cg-clipboard-stack.001,
update/pdk004.001
Description:

CG had two bugs that caused it to mishandle the system-wide chain of "clipboard-viewing" applications. One bug was that it did not handle the message correctly to repoint itself to a different clipboard-viewing app when the one just following lisp has exited. The other bug was that the IDE or a CG app did not remove itself from the chain of clipboard-viewing apps when exiting. This patch corrects these problems.

For these fixes to take place after this patch is installed, you may need to regenerate any standalone CG apps and then reboot any machine that they will run on. The reason is that the system-wide chain of clipboard-viewing applications may already be in a corrupted state when you insall the patch.

Description:
  • Implements the capability for lisp callbacks (as defined by ff:defun-foreign-callable) to return foreign structs to their callers.
  • Fixes bugs in callbacks when given many float arguments, or when called from lisp directly (note that the function need not be registered in order to call it from lisp).

    Documentation and implementation is spotty for now - struct returning does not yet work on the following architectures: HP/UX (32-bit and 64-bit), AIX (32-bit and 64-bit), Solaris/sparc 32-bit, and MacOSX 64-bit. The hidden registers used for the copy make patching these architectures hard.

  • Documentation: A third "declaration" is now allowed in defun-foreign-callable forms, called :returning. It is intended to eventually replace the convert-to-c-types argument in register-foreign-callable, and cannot be used with it. Currently it is ignored except when the declaration includes a foreign struct type (either a :struct, a :union, or a :class); when this occurs a hidden argument is provided and the structure is arranged to be copied back to the caller, according to the calling convention of the architecture. The general form is
    (ff:defun-foreign-callable foo (...)
       (declare (:returning <type>))
       ...)
    
    where <type> is a foreign type or its name specifying a structure.

Because of XP/64's IL32P64 architecture, as opposed to most other 64-bit architectures which have a LP64 (i.e. I32LP64) setup, the :long declaration does not help to specify a 64-bit value.

  • A lisp image dumped after multiprocessing had started could not always be restarted.
  • (Windows only) Could not avoid sharing open file handles with a process spawned by run-shell-command.

New user-visible feature (ms windows only):

run-shell-command has a new keyword argument :share-open-files. When true (the default value), behavior is the same as before the patch, i.e., all open file handles that could be shared will be shared.

When :share-open-files is specified as nil, then the :input, :output, and :error-output keyword arguments must be nil (the default). In this case no open file handles will be shared and the spawned process will open its own standard io handles if it needs them.

cg patch
Date posted: Fri Mar 3 11:28:20 PST 2006
Patch name: code/cg-outline.001
Description:

If you show or hide the child items of an outline-item and the focus was in an item below the items beings shown or was hidden, then the focus rectangle could remain drawn on the item at the index where it was rather than on the moved item that really has keyboard focus. In rarer cases, the outline-item that had the focus could even be drawn on the wrong row.

This patch also fixes another long-time outline drawing bug where parts of the vertical lines could sometimes not be drawn if their logical length is longer then 32k pixels. This appears to be a limitation of line-drawing in Microsoft Windows, which CG now avoids.

In preparation for enhancements for a future release, this patch also includes the new feature that an outline-item will be drawn above its parent item (rather than below it as usual) if its above-parent property is true and the outline's handle-above-parent is true. This is useful for indicating that certain child items actually represent additional parents of a directed acyclic graph, for example. This feature may slow certain operations, such as smooth scrolling, but only if the outlines handle-above-parent property is true. It is nil by default.

cg patch
Date posted: Thu Mar 2 17:22:50 PST 2006
Patch name: code/cg-pixmap.001
Description:If you create a pixmap by evaluating lisp code that passes the pixels as a "contents" list instead of using load-pixmap to load a .bmp file and the pixmap is 24 bits-per-pixel with a width that is not a multiple of four, the image would be skewed due to drawing each row of pixels one pixel over from the previous row. This can happen when using 24-bit pixmaps in widgets on form windows because the pixmap image is saved as lisp source code rather than continuing to load it from a .bmp file. This bug was due to not padding each row in the pixel array to align to a 32-bit word, and is corrected by this patch.

Description:The generic function set-selection has a new "scroll" keyword argument that determines whether the window or widget will scroll as needed so that the new text cursor position or selected text is scrolled into view. The method for dialog-item inadvertently did not default the value of this argument to true as intended, and so is not compatible with earlier versions where the scroll was always done. This patch simply defaults the new scroll argument of that method to true for compatibility with earlier versions.

This library patch should be accompanied by update/pda001.001 (see LOG entry above) to enable compilations to use the new calling style. Most foreign calls will pass less than 6 arguments, but if you have foreign calls that pass more arguments than 6, you will need a compiler patch as well which will be forthcoming.

ide patch
Date posted: Wed Jan 25 16:20:24 PST 2006
Patch name: code/ide-project.001
Description:

A number of IDE project related fixes.

In 7.0, any printing that a Run Project process did to standard output usually appeared in the IDE listener. This was due to a bug where the IDE erroneously set the global binding of *standard-output* and the other standard stream I/O variables. This bug has been fixed in IDE patch update/pdl001.001 (see LOG entry below).This patch causes any Run Project process to initially bind (in the correct way) the variables to the IDE listener that was currently selected when the project was run. This ensures that debugging output in the project code will print within the IDE where it is more visible and where the IDE menubar commands may be used on it.

This patch also fixes a break that could occur in atypical cases when the IDE asks which unsaved project modules to save. The break was due to a bogus call to the internal function in-project-p.

This patch also improves the behavior of the project manager when an error occurs while compiling and/or loading project files during an Open Project command. Formerly, the project manager did not list the new project's files until you aborted or otherwise returned from the error. With this patch, the project manager will list the files before compiling and loading, and even highlight each file just before it is loaded. This allows you to use the project manager to easily edit the file that broke if you go into the debugger on the error.

cg patch for mswindows only
Date posted: Wed Jan 25 16:20:24 PST 2006
Patch name: code/cg-printing.001
Description:

There is a new double-sided option for programmatically specifying whether a print job should print double-sided. This is mostly useful when bypassing the print job dialog where the user would typically select this option interactively.

    There are four possible values:
  • nil (or unspecified) -- use the default setting
  • :no -- single-side
  • :short-edge-binding -- double-sided for binding along the shorter side
  • :long-edge-binding (or any non-nil value other than those above) -- double-sided for binding along the longer side

Here is an example that will print double-sided to the current default printer, without showing its print job dialog:

(with-output-to-printer
    (out :no-dialog-p t
         :units-per-inch 100
         :font (make-font-ex nil :arial 33)
         :double-sided t)     ;; same as :long-edge-binding
  (print "Front side of first sheet." out)
  (new-page out)
  (print "Back side of first sheet." out)
  (new-page out)
  (print "Front side of second sheet." out))

Date posted: Wed Jan 25 16:20:24 PST 2006
Patch name: update/pdl001.001
Description:In certain cases the IDE could set the global value of *standard-output* and the other standard stream I/O variables to be an IDE listener pane. A Run Project, where standard output should be the console window, would print to the IDE listener instead. Later closing that IDE listener and performing a Run Project again could break when printing to standard output. This patch prevents the IDE from setting the global value of these variables.
