+Fixes and enhancements since 5.7
+-- XLISP and XLISPSTAT support has been added on an experimental way.
+ Please give us feedback on their behavior.
+-- There is now a way to disable the DEFPACKAGE feature for GCL. But
+ it is not turned on. You have to fix it manually by transforming two
+ '#+(and nil gcl)' into '#+(and t gcl)'
+-- A few fixes were made to realign ILISP to Xemacs 19.14
+-- The file 'clisp.lisp' has been renamed to 'cl-ilisp.lisp', in order
+ to avoid confusion with the CLISP implementation of Common Lisp.
+-- The file ILISP.prj (if present) can be safely ignored unless you
+ want to use the PRCS project control system
+-- Changed 'comint-ipc' and 'bridge'. They now use
+ 'process-send-string' instead of defining specialized versions of
+ it. (This was done because it appears that the newer versions of
+ 'comint' have a 'process-send-string' that does what these specialized
+-- Added constant '+ilisp-emacs-minor-version-number+' (in 'ilcompat').
+-- Conditionalized loading of 'bridge.el' (in 'ilisp').
+-- Fixed the annoying ECL/GCL glitch in 'ilisp-kcl' and the error
+ regexps for KCL and IBCL in the same file
+-- Patched 'comint-ipc' according to suggestion by Kazuhiro Fujieda.
+-- Patched 'ilisp-out' according to suggestion by Kazuhiro Fujieda.
+-- Allegro multiprocessing output handling is still broken. This is a
+ though one and the maintaners cannot fix it.
+Fixes and enhancements since 5.6:
+-- ILISP now unpacks in a directory called ./ilisp-<version>.
+-- Fixed various simple bugs in the init files (hooks et
+ similia). Check 'ilisp.el' and 'ilisp.emacs' for details.
+-- Support for different Emacs versions has been broken down in
+ various version specific files. See:
+ ilcompat.el (new name for compatibility file)
+ illuc19.el = ilxemacs.el
+-- ILISP is now compiled with version 19 bytecodes when
+ appropriate. (This should work at least for FSF 19.xx).
+-- Added a primitive menubar entry.
+-- Included the bug fixes for source file tracking.
+-- The Makefile now contains a new target called 'loadfile', which
+ generates a file called 'ilisp-all.elc'. This speeds up ILISP sturtup.
+-- Popping to the inferior lisp buffer is now done in a more
+ intelligent way in FSF-19 (i.e. if a frame with the appropriate
+ window is available, then that frame is raised instead of
+ recreating a window in the current one).
+-- The ILD uniform Lisp debugger by J. Siskind has been added to the
+ distribution (file 'ild.mail'). ILD is not integrated yet with
+ ILISP, but it is important enough that people should experiment
+-- The texinfo file has been fixed.
+-- New dialects have been added: GCL, ECL, Harlequin Lispworks, CLISP.
+-- The special-form-p/special-operator-p mess should be fixed (at
+-- Cleaned up support for Lucid, Allegro and CMULISP.
+-- The file 'scheme2c.mail' contains a trick to make Scheme->C to work

+ Scheme->C dialect. Note that this file is neither byte compiled nor
+-- Keymap handling is still rather inflexible. Either you like the
+ setup or you don't. (A patch by Kimball Collins was not inserted in
+ the code because we feel there should be a more thorough cleanup).
+-- AKCL and GCL may cause an error in the sturtup procedure of ILISP. We (the
+ maintainers) have been unable to track down this one since we have
+ not access to an AKCL or GCL environment. Please help us.
+-- Source level tracking for interpreted code in CMUCL may still break down
+ unexpectedly. This is due to the inner working of CMUCL and there
+ is no easy fix. We try to fall back on the TAG machinery.
+-- The menu entry does not track correctly the status of the inferior
+ lisp. I.e. there is no code yet that disables the menu items when
+ the inferior Lisp is not running anymore.
+-- Package tracking is still somewhat flaky.
+-- Multiprocessing Lisps may still cause problems with prompts. This
+ has been noticed especially with Allegro CL.

+Mon, 11 Jul 94 10:48:24 EDT Version 5.6 Released
+-- Works once again with GNU emacs 19.25, lemacs 19.10. and emacs 18.58.
+-- The popper facility has been completely replaced by a much less
+ intrusive facility which has most of the original functionality.
+ All ilisp output is funneled through the function which is the value
+ of the variable ilisp-display-output-function. Several sample display
+ functions are provided. Do c-H m in an ilisp buffer for more info.
+-- The common lisp arglist printer has been prettified somewhat.
+-- Ilisp no longer tries to handle lisp errors by default. This is
+ controlled by the varible ilisp-handle-errors.
+-- Many of the hairy regexps used to located definitions have been
+ broken out into separate variables. One is ilisp-cl-source-locater-patterns,
+ which is an alist of (function-type regexp)
+-- Compile-defun, eval-defun and friends display the returned lisp value.
+-- Defined variables for the init files for the built-in dialects, to ease
+ customization (ilisp-clisp-init-file, etc).
+-- Some handy new functions: ilisp-lispm-bindings, repair-ilisp.
+-- A minor bugfix in ilisp-send.
+-- A simplified makefile.
+-- Now works with lemacs 19.8 (to be released soon) in addition to all
+ the other versions of emacs around.
+-- Added support for CMUCL 17b.
+-- Fixed definition regexp in ilisp-locate-ilisp. Thanks to Paul
+-- Hacked popper to make output lines of one line or less get
+ displayed in the message buffer, depending on the variable
+-- Fixes some problems in clisp.lisp
+-- Makefile-ilisp now valid for Sun's distributed `make'.
+-- Did the right thing regarding autoloads (yes you have to define them
+in your .emacs, and make them autoload "ilisp".) See ilisp.emacs

+Sat Jun 26 14:22:01 1993 Version 5.0 Released
+The major changes from 4.12:
+--Now works with emacs-18, fsf emacs-19, and Lucid emacs-19.
+--Major file splitting done in an attempt to modularize ILISP.
+--Added LISP-DONT-CACHE-PACKAGE lets users tell ILISP to search for the
+most recent IN-PACKAGE on each eval/compile in a lisp buffer.
+--Added 'message feature for lisp-no-popper, allows output from ILISP
+to be sent to the message window (instead of via the popper or the
+inferior lisp buffer) if it is one line long. Useful for small
+arg-lists, etc. Now the default.
+--Made the popper be off by default. To have the popper on, set
+popper-pop-buffers and popper-buffers-to-skip to t in a
+popper-load-hook. See the sample in popper.el

+92/03/17 Version 4.12 released
+Changes: Fixed an intermittent send bug. Made it so that popper is
+not required so aggressively. Ignore symbolics font information of
+source. Made lisp-end-defun-text so that it would work in non-lisp
+modes. Set the package for ilisp-arglist. Made error dispatch case
+insensitive. Fixed lisp-directory to add files when lisp-edit-files
+is t. Fixed clisp.lisp compile for lucid. Made
+comint-interrupt-subjob interactive. Updated popper to run with emacs
+19. Fixed popper-wraps so that shell-command gets wrapped at load
+time and changed it to be a function. Added newline at end of bug
+messages. Updated the cmulisp interface file to run with the lastest
+CMU CL release. Made sure that *standard-output* and *error-output*
+are bound to *terminal-io*. Fixed completer so that last completion
+was accurate in the case of interruptions. Added a path cache to
+completer. Fixed completer so that Meta-return completes to best guess
+and so that the full pattern is used for disambiguation. Fixed +
+history so that it is saved/restored. Fixed popper so that popping up
+a window when in a popper window resuses the same window and if the
+buffer is changed within a temp-buffer-show form, it works properly.
+Fixed lisp-defun-end so that it no longer includes to the end of the
+line. Made it so that initialization through commands did not try to
+synchronize with the inferior LISP. Fixed edit-definitions-lisp so
+that it would work if there is no inferior lisp. Fixed popper-wrap so
+that it included numeric documentation strings. Made it so that
+popper preserves the buffer point and scrolling backwards wraps
+around. Incoroporated the latest version of completion. Added
+documentation on global-map bindings. Added
+ilisp-load-no-compile-query. Added ilisp-use-map so that keymaps can
+be switched in dialect definitions. Added completer-any-delimiter to
+completer. Fixed bug in completer that caused relative file names to
+get erased. Fixed popper so that it handled killed buffers, popped
+faster and had negative buffer lists. Fixed it so that
+dialect-program doesn't get stomped by loading ilisp. Made it so that
+ilisp-bug doesn't stomp on someone's unfinished message. Look for
+both .elc and .el files for setting ilisp-directory. Fixed a bug in
+lucid that prevented compilation of the interface files on some
+implementations. Fixed epoch-pop so that it quits nicer. Fixed bug
+in CMU LISP interface. Added *features* to ilisp-bug. Fixed bugs in
+completer when extending directories and for Apollo and AFS. Fixed
+popper so that it does not remove the trailing newline. Made
+lisp-buffer smart about killed buffers.
+91/05/08 Version 4.11 released
+Changes: Improved the way that completer handled filenames ending with
+a / and relative pathnames. Added popper-wrap to popper for functions
+that don't use with-output-to-temp-buffer. Added popper-empty-min and
+popper-min-heights. Made popper-pop-buffers and popper-buffers-to-skip
+default to t. Fixed lisp-prefix-p so that reusing completion tables
+works better. Fixed a bug in lisp-end-defun-text that made things
+weird when people did not use ;;; for top comment blocks. Improved
+ilisp-bug so that it gives more information and is less likely to
+break. Put interface files in their own package. Changed
+ilisp-compile to funcall of compile for all except lucid. Fixed a bug
+in lisp-pop-to-buffer that put the lisp in the popper buffer. Fixed a
+bug in ilisp-matching-symbols that prevented pattern matching with a
+pattern that matched the last word. Bare CR's now send an empty
+string. Made it so that allegro init binary extensions default to
+excl:*fasl-default-type* unless on a known platform. Added fboundp to
+generic-function-p in ilisp-arglist. Fixed KCL and friends dialects.
+Fixed a couple of small bugs in completer. Added raw keyboard mode.
+Fixed lisp-pop-to-buffer so that the buffer was always selected which
+fixed a bug in edit-definitions and friends. Removed space from KCL
+comint-prompt-regexp. Added inspect-lisp. Fixed a bug in popper-show
+that complained if buffer was a string and fixed call in
+who-calls-lisp. Fixed some bugs in completer that completed too much
+for local returns and that nuked the string if confirmation was
+91/03/19 Version 4.10 released
+Changes: Changed the default binding of close-and-send-lisp. Added
+better dialect support for kcl, akcl, and ibcl. Improved the run-time
+detection of PCL/CLOS in clisp.lisp. Fixed a nasty popper bug if you
+tried to pop up a window when in a popper window. Made it so that
+popper-other-window would switch to the popper window when called with
+a C-u prefix. Added support for allegro 4.0. Made lisp-in-string
+smarter about escaped " so that close-all-lisp worked better. Renamed
+reparse-attribute-list and made it so that you can specify manual
+packages. Improved partial completion of symbols so that it goes to
+the ambiguous part. Changed it so that uncompiled interface files
+complain rather than compile. Improved completer so that it completes
+pathname components. Made it so that dialects could be started up
+with emacs switches. Incorporated a new fancier version of
+reposition-window-lisp. Fixed restore so that it no longer printed
+messages when there were multiple line values restored. Added
+trace-function-lisp. Improved lisp-function-name when it is in a
+string. Changed initialization so that there is a dialect specific
+program variable and the defaults are better and sticky.
+lucid-check-prompt was hosed which of course broke everything in
+Lucid. Fixed load-file-lisp so that it allows interaction and senses
+compile errors better. Added process bridges. Added
+comint-always-scroll. Made allegro macroexpand so that it would walk
+instead. Fixed popper so that switching to the popper buffer worked.
+Fixed close-all-lisp so that it did not blow away # or ' at start of
+sexp. Fixed ilisp-buffer so that it complained if the buffer was
+killed out from under it. Changed ilisp-filter-regexp to filter all
+lone keywords. Added prefix arg to documentation-lisp so that
+function call doc could be gotten. Set ilisp-directory in
+initialization so that it could be built into Emacs image. Added
+Franz online common lisp manual. Added reset-ilisp to reset to
+top-level and made it so that delete-char would pop one level at the
+end. Added call-defun-lisp and bound it to C-z y. Fixed the binding
+for popper-grow-output. Added lisp-no-popper to stop using popper.
+Fixed compile-defun-lisp so that it would compile the previous form in
+the inferior LISP. Made it so that the entire in-package sexp is sent
+to the inferior so that nicknames get set. Added package-lisp and
+set-package-lisp. Removed eval-prev-sexp-lisp and made
+eval-next-sexp-lisp do that with a negative prefix. Fixed
+lisp-defun-name so that it returned just the function name. Added
+lisp-region-name to better name regions. Improved messages in
+interrupt-subjob-lisp. Added sit-for to all accept-process-output
+loops to prevent locking up Emacs in Sys V. Changed how
+comment-region-lisp treated the end of the region and fixed a nasty
+bug for a region including the eob. Made changes to clisp.lisp for
+lucid and kcl. Added better kcl dialect definition. Made it so that
+end-of-defun-lisp would require ;;; at the left margin to decide that
+the next definition had started. Made it so that multiple sexps could
+be typed to the top-level. Made it so that all popper windows could
+be skipped. Simplified the ilisp-package-regexp.
+90/12/30 Version 4.00 released
+IMPROVEMENTS: Process stuff has been rewritten and much improved. If
+you prefer the old eval/compile behavior, set lisp-wait-p to t in your
+ilisp-load-hook. Improved edit-definitions and edit-callers so that
+they support multiple definitions of any LISP object even if the
+inferior LISP does not store the information. Added support for
+Epoch. Separated out lisp-mode extensions, symlink fix, source stuff
+and batch eval/compile. Lots of minor improvements, see details
+INCOMPATIBLE CHANGES: Renamed interactive functions to put package
+specification at the end so that names were quicker to specify and
+some internal functions so that they were unique to ilisp.
+ilisp-clisp now takes the full file name. ilisp-load-or-send-command
+now takes the binary and source paths explicitly. The ilisp- prefix
+was removed from dialect file names. ilisp-definition-regexp has gone
+away. ilisp-prompt, ilisp-fix-error and ilisp-continue have gone away
+in favor of the actual comint- variables. ilisp-expand-symlinks has
+DETAILS: Finally fixed up how many newlines are inserted. Made it so
+that the source file stuff would use a resident buffer with the same
+name if available. Added ilisp-filter-length to the input filter.
+When reading a symbol, the inferior lisp is no longer queried with an
+empty string. newline-and-indent-ilisp will send a string w/o a new
+line if called at the end of a buffer. This was so that raw character
+i/o could be done in some lisps. All comint and comint-ipc variables
+can now be set in hooks and the right thing will happen. Made
+lisp-end-defun-text skip over leading comments. Added the functions
+search-in-lisp-files and replace-in-lisp-files. Prevented the
+addition of duplicate entries to the input ring and expanded its size
+to 200 entries. Made lisp-def-name so that it adds the name of the
+defining form and returns an empty string at the end of a buffer.
+Swapped bindings of macroexpand-lisp and macroexpand-1-lisp. Fixed
+expand-file-name bug if // was at the start of a filename. Fixed
+obscure bug in make-local-variable. Added ilisp-other-prompt and
+bol-ilisp. Added case-fold-search to appropriate places. Fixed error
+recovery in ilisp-completer. Removed extra parentheses in the string
+for ilisp-init-binary-command. Added documentation on scrolling the
+popper window backwards. Fixed comment-region so that it handles
+empty lines and deleting spaces at the start. Fixed behavior of
+reindent-lisp on comments at the start and end of a buffer. Saved the
+point in reposition-window-lisp. Rewrote close-all-lisp so that it
+inserted a bracket if in a string and was better behaved WRT non sexp
+brackets and so that it could close all brackets. Removed breaks in
+lisp-end-defun-text for unclosed strings. Added comint-check-prompt
+to comint-ipc so that dialects can be smarter about errors. Added
+ilisp-check-prompt and allegro and lucid definitions. Changed
+edit-callers so that it uses the name of the current defun as its
+default. Changed popper so that it handles more windows, removes
+trailing lines, is nicer about bindings and added popper-grow-output.
+Also added epoch-pop for epoch. Made lisp-input-start work if the
+point was at the start of the line the prompt was on. This made
+reindent-lisp and close-all-lisp work in ilisp mode. Added
+close-and-send-lisp. Made it so that bindings are only done after the
+hooks are run. Shorter clisp error messages. Removed
+ilisp-definition-regexp and replaced it with ilisp-locator. Made
+message optional in ilisp-send and ilisp-send-string. Added a startup
+message to ilisp buffers. Made it so that there is filename
+completion when prompting for lisp program. Fixed bug in
+ilisp-load-init. Made it so that if an eval/compile worked normally,
+no message was displayed. Fixed lucid ilisp-list-callers so that it
+does not recurse forever. Changed lisp-list-callers to who-calls-lisp
+and made it so that it would display the buffer. Added ilisp-dialect
+as a list of dialect names for the inferior LISP. Added partial
+minibuffer completion. Improved filename completion help in
+complete-lisp. Added ilisp-bug for bug reporting. Improved case
+handling for clisp. popper v2.00, completer v2.00.
+10/12/90 Version 3.0 released. Improved pop-up windows, symbol
+completion, package handling, compilation and initialization.
+Changed default binding prefix. Added trace/untrace and
+ 8/22/90 Version 2.0 released. Fixed bugs and changed initialization.
+ 6/11/90 Version 1.0 released.
