12:33 rurban1 Hi
12:34 rurban1 my report
12:34 rurban1 sorry, missed last week. probably next week also.
12:34 rurban1 DONE:
12:34 rurban1 * jonathan found a fatal msvc regression => 7.0.2
12:34 rurban1 * merge smoke-me/win64-msvc-gh1190
12:34 rurban1 * merge smoke-me/cvt_num16_num8
12:34 rurban1 * merge and release 7.0.2 hotfix
12:34 rurban1 * merge smoke-me/gc-stress-gh1189 (the one GC stress test we were talking about)
12:34 rurban1 * Fix test failures with --ccflags=-DSTRUCT_DEBUG #1195
12:34 rurban1 WORK:
12:34 rurban1 * Optimize StringBuilder.substr smoke-me/stringbuilder-gh1123
12:34 rurban1 and various StringHandle and IO functions. i.e. optimize io_stringhandle_write_b
12:34 rurban1 Reuse write buffer if large enough.
12:34 rurban1 * Fix compact strings on older GCs (ms, ms2) #1196 to get back a fast GC (15%-30% faster)
12:34 rurban1 smoke-me/gcdebug-ms-gh1196
12:34 rurban1 Adding -D101 debugging trace flags
12:34 rurban1 + Analyze performance loss with --gc gms #1141
12:34 rurban1 + Add Parrot_{un,}block_GC_move API #1197 for compacting/move steps
12:34 rurban1 Still need to protect current S or P args or locals from being moved.
12:34 rurban1 Need to add it to the pmc2c and ops2c compilers. Maybe add a new PObj flag for this,
12:34 rurban1 or reuse one.
12:34 rurban1 SIGBUS smoke-me/gc-ptrdiff-gh1200 (unaligned access on a RISC cpu, no test machine yet)
12:34 rurban1 + prepare a RISC vm to test alignment traps: debian armhf not, debian armv7 not,
12:34 rurban1 debian armel not, mips not yet, but got now an armv5 armel debian wheezy
12:34 rurban1 * Better Env on windows: smoke-me/env-gh1191 (putenv_s, wide api for unicode chars)
12:34 rurban1 * change perl5 derived -O2 to -O3 for gcc/clang #1185
12:34 rurban1 * smoke-me/slow-mod (optionally ignore mod by negative numbers, our slow mod is a big bottleneck)
12:34 rurban1 * optionally get rid of GC stats numfree rurban/gcms-numfree
12:34 rurban1 * some more minor tickets: ARG*_ALIAS #1198, pmc_default.h #1194, .# checkdepend.t #1199
12:35 rurban1 * Deprecate Parrot_list_* and GC allocate_bufferlike_header, ... funcs #1179
12:35 rurban1 eor
