This message announces the availability of JACAL release jacal1c3.
JACAL is an interactive symbolic mathematics program. JACAL can manipulate and simplify equations, scalars, vectors, and matrices of single and multiple valued algebraic expressions containing numbers, variables, radicals, and algebraic differential, and holonomic functions.
JACAL is written in Scheme and works with Scheme implementations which support the SLIB Scheme Library. The SCM Scheme implementation (written in C) is available with JACAL. SCM runs on Amiga, AtariST, MacOS, MSDOS, OS/2, NOS/VE, Unicos, VMS, Windows, Unix and similar systems.
JACAL is free software and part of the GNU project. It is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
Documentation and distributions in several formats are linked from JACAL's home page:
