LispWorks 6.1 Patches

Note: The free LispWorks Personal Edition does not load patches. Do not attempt to install or load these patches in the Personal Edition.

Users of LispWorks 6.1 Professional and Enterprise Editions should be running LispWorks 6.1.1

To use LispWorks 6.1.1 you must first have LispWorks 6.1 installed. You then add the 6.1.1 patch release from this page.

Here are the patches for: LispWorks for Macintosh; LispWorks for Linux ; LispWorks for x86/x64 Solaris ; LispWorks for FreeBSD ; LispWorks for AIX ; LispWorks for Windows ; LispWorks (Unix platforms)

LispWorks for Macintosh

Mount the disk in the LispWorks611Patches-32bit.dmg (for 32-bit LispWorks) or LispWorks611Patches-64bit.dmg file (for 64-bit LispWorks) as appropriate. Run the installer. Install the patches in the same location where LispWorks 6.1 is already installed. If the LispWorks installation is not found, patches are not installed. Choose the "Install" option when prompted. The installer adds files to the patches subdirectory and updates the LispWorks application bundle. Call load-all-patches in your siteinit.lisp file: this ensures patches are loaded at startup.

You can remove the patches (restoring LispWorks to version 6.1.0) by running the installer again and choosing the "Uninstall" option when prompted.

LispWorks for Linux

Download either the RPM or the tar archive for 32-bit or 64-bit LispWorks as appropriate. Choose tar.gz or RPM depending on how you originally installed LispWorks: you do not need both. Install it in the installation directory. See readme-611.txt for further details. Call load-all-patches in your siteinit.lisp file: this ensures patches are loaded at startup.

LispWorks for AIX

64-bit LispWorks is installed by default in

/opt/LispWorks/lib/LispWorks-64-bit

although it is possible to install it elsewhere. You need to install patches in the same location as you installed LispWorks. For example:

cd /opt/LispWorks/lib/LispWorks-64-bit # or your installation directory
gzip -d lw61-patches1-rs6k64-aix.tar.gz
tar xf lw61-patches1-rs6k64-aix.tar

LispWorks 5.1 Patches

Note: The free LispWorks Personal Edition does not load patches. Do not attempt to install or load these patches in the Personal Edition.

Users of LispWorks 5.1 Professional and Enterprise Editions should be running LispWorks 5.1.2

To use LispWorks 5.1.2 you must first have LispWorks 5.1 or 5.1.1 installed from a CD-ROM or download. You then add the 5.1.2 patch release from this page.

Here are the patches for: LispWorks for Macintosh; LispWorks for Linux ; LispWorks for FreeBSD ; LispWorks for Windows ; LispWorks (Unix platforms)

LispWorks for Macintosh

Mount the disk in the LispWorksPatches-5.1.2.dmg or LispWorks64bitPatches-5.1.2.dmg file, as appropriate. Run the installer. Install the patches in the same location where LispWorks 5.1 is already installed. If the LispWorks installation is not found, patches are not installed. Choose the "Install" option when prompted. The installer adds files to the patches subdirectory and updates the LispWorks application bundle. Call load-all-patches in your siteinit.lisp file: this ensures patches are loaded at startup.

This set of private patches fixes bugs seen in LispWorks 5.1.2 on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, including problems using menu accelerators.

To install, mount the disk image and copy all the patch binaries to:

/Applications/LispWorks 5.1/Library/lib/5-1-0-0/private-patches

or

/Applications/LispWorks 5.1 (64-bit)/Library/lib/5-1-0-0/private-patches

Open the file private-patches/load.lisp with TextEdit.app and edit it to add these loading forms inside the flet form, on the line below the example form:

(load-one-private-patch "validate-menu-item" :capi-cocoa)
(load-one-private-patch "reenter-on-different-stack" :system)
(load-one-private-patch "periodic-tasks-function" :mp)

Save the file private-patches/load.lisp and then restart LispWorks.

Note: You also need to have installed 5.1.2.

Note: You can use these patches on older versions of Mac OS X too.

There is a detailed description of how to install private patches here.

Patches for LispWorks 4.4 and earlier

Users of LispWorks 4.4.5, or Xanalys LispWorks 4.4, should be running LispWorks version 4.4.6.

You must first have LispWorks 4.4.5 installed from the CD-ROM or download which you have purchased. You then add the 4.4.6 patch release from this page.

Here are the patches for: LispWorks 4.4 for Macintosh ; LispWorks 4.4 for Linux ; LispWorks 4.4 for Windows ; LispWorks 4.4 (Unix platforms) ; LispWorks for Macintosh 4.3 ; LispWorks for Linux 4.3 and earlier ; LispWorks for Windows 4.3 and earlier ; LispWorks (Unix platforms) 4.3 and earlier

Here's a patch for editor source location in LispWorks 4.3 Professional or Enterprise Edition.

The last patch release for LispWorks 4.3 is LispWorks 4.3.7. This upgrades all versions 4.3.x. LispWorks patch releases are cumulative so you do not need to first install 4.3.6, though it does not matter if you have done that.

The last patch release for version 4.2 is LispWorks 4.2.7.

There will be no further patch releases for LispWorks 4.4 or previous versions.

To benefit from the latest LispWorks features, improvements and patches upgrade to LispWorks 5.0.


LispWorks® for Macintosh®

Mount the disk in the LispWorksPatches4.4.6.dmg file. Run the installer 'LispWorks Patches'. Install the patches in the same location LispWorks 4.4.5 is already installed. If the LispWorks installation is not found, patches are not installed. Choose the "Easy Install" option when prompted. The installer will add files to the patches subdirectory and also update the LispWorks application bundle. After installing the new patches, check that there is a call to load-all-patches in your siteinit.lisp file. This ensures patches are loaded at startup. It is best to save an image containing the new patches.

LispWorks 4.4.5 users with Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) need only to install patch release 4.4.6 to make the menu bar menus update correctly and make images with transparent backgrounds work. After installing 4.4.6 you can remove the private patches appkit-tiger-1.nfasl, capi-cocoa-tiger-1.nfasl and premultiply-rgba32-standalone.nfasl, though it does not matter if you leave them in place.

Mount the disk in the 'LispWorks Patches 4.3.7.dmg' file. Run the installer 'LispWorks Patches'. Install the patches in the same location LispWorks 4.3 is already installed. If the LispWorks installation is not found, patches are not installed. Choose the "Easy Install" option when prompted. The installer will add files to the patches subdirectory and also update the LispWorks application bundle. You can remove the patches (restoring LispWorks to version 4.3.0) by running the installer 'LispWorks Patches' again and choosing the "Uninstall" option when prompted. After installing the new patches, check that there is a call to load-all-patches in your siteinit.lisp file. This ensures patches are loaded at startup. It is best to save an image containing the new patches.
