From time to time we may release a patch file. Most users can probably get by pretty well without bothering to load a patch file.
Installation instructions appear at the top of the patch file. The "raw Lisp version" just below is one that can be loaded into raw Lisp but typically lacks some of the fixes in the "certifiable book" version.
patch-3.2-4.lisp(certifiable book version; 5:13 pm CDT, May 17, 2007)
patch-3.2-4-raw.lisp(raw Lisp version)
(OpenMCL and multi-threaded SBCL only) Fixed a soundness bug in the
mbe forms in the presence of Lisp feature
:acl2-mv-as-values. Thanks to Sol Swords for reporting this problem and
sending a simple proof of
nil (which can be found in a comment in the
ACL2 sources, in
(deflabel note-3-3 ...)).
Fixed a bug in evaluation of calls of
(include-book "arithmetic-3/floor-mod/floor-mod" :dir :system) :pl (mod (+ 1 x) n)The second bug was due to a failure to take note of which rules are disabled, and could be seen by executing the following (very slow!).
(defstub modulus () t) (include-book "arithmetic-3/floor-mod/floor-mod" :dir :system) :pl (mod (+ x y) (modulus))
accumulated-persistence to break down results by useful vs.
useless rule applications. In particular, this provides information about
which rules were ever applied successfully, as requested by Bill Young.
Fixed a bug that was causing a
clause-processor hint to fire on a
subgoal of the goal to which it was attached, when the original application
didn't change the clause. Thanks to Dave Greve for pointing out this bug and
providing a useful example.
A Windows Installer for ACL2 is provided courtesy
of Alex Spiridonov and Jared Davis. The download includes a Unix environment,
pre-certified standard and workshop books, and a copy of Gnu Emacs.
The following times were for the full ACL2 regression suite (distributed and workshop books). Not shown is a successful regression run on Windows using GCL 2.6.7.
In each case below, the first number, User time, is probably the most relevant for comparisons. The format is essentially:
