See the LispWorks Delivery User Guide for more details of the changes mentioned in this section.
:split keyword argument to
lw:deliver now works for a Lisp dynamic library on all platforms (previously it only worked on Microsoft Windows). Using
:split :resources for a dynamic library on Mac OS X create a Resources directory adjacent to the dynamic library, as in a framework bundle.
lw:deliver now take a keyword argument
:dll-extra-link-options, which allows extra arguments to be passed to the linker when making a dynamic library. This option has existed since LispWorks 6.0 but has not been documented until now.
During delivery of a dynamic library on Linux, LispWorks now links to specific versions of symbols in the C library. This makes it more likely that the library will work on older versions of Linux. Libraries created with previous versions of LispWorks would depend on the version of Linux used to deliver them.
Delivering LispWorks as a dynamic library to be loaded by Java is made simpler by the new function
lw-ji:setup-deliver-dynamic-library-for-java. Normally all you need to do is add a call
lw-ji:setup-deliver-dynamic-library-for-java without arguments before calling
The new function
lw-ji:get-host-java-virtual-machine returns the host Java virtual machine when it is called in a dynamic library that was delivered with a call
setup-deliver-dynamic-library-for-java, and the dynamic library was loaded by Java.
