FriCAS is an advanced computer algebra system. Its capabilities range from calculus (integration and differentiation) to abstract algebra. It can plot functions and has integrated help system.
FriCAS 1.1.8 builds on Linux and many Unix like systems (for example Mac OSX and Solaris 10). FriCAS is build on top of Common Lisp; several Lisps can compile and run FriCAS  currently supported are GCL, SBCL, Clisp, ECL, Closure CL.

Notable changes (compared to version 1.1.7):
 Improvements of pattern matching integrator, it can now integrate in terms of Fresnel integrals and better handles integrals in terms of Si and Ci.
 Better integration of symbolic derivatives.
 Better normalization of Liouvillian functions.
 New package for computing limits using Gruntz algorithm.
 Faster removal of roots from denominators.
 New domains for mutivariate Ore algebras and partial differential operators.
 New package for noncommutative Groebner bases.
 New domain for univariate power series with arbitrary exponents.
 New special functions: Shi and Chi.
 New package for noncommutative Groebner bases.
 New domain for univariate power series with arbitrary exponents.
 New special functions: Shi and Chi.
 Several aggregates (in particular tables) allow more general parameter types.
 New domain for hash tables using equality from underlying domain.
Bug fixes, in particular:
 Fixed problem with gcd failing due to bad reduction.
 Fixed series of 'acot' and Puiseux series of several special functions.
 Fixed wrong factorization of differential operators.
 Fixed build problem on recent Mac OS X.
