This is the second build of a new upstream release, fixing a build and
packaging error.  I've patched up the build system quite a bit, so I'd
welcome feedback from testers.


Maxima - Computer Algebra System
================================

Maxima is a system for the manipulation of symbolic and numerical
expressions, including differentiation, integration, Taylor series,
Laplace transforms, ordinary differential equations, systems of linear
equations, polynomials, sets, lists, vectors, matrices and
tensors. Maxima yields high precision numerical results by using exact
fractions, arbitrary-precision integers and variable-precision
floating-point numbers. Maxima can plot functions and data in two and
three dimensions.

Maxima is written in CommonLisp and based on the DOE Macsyma that was
developed at MIT.


Packaging
=========

The installation has been split into several packages:

maxima            - common components and documentation,
                    execution on pre-compiled clisp (memory image)
maxima-lang-*     - localization for several languages
maxima-xmaxima    - a Tcl/Tk based GUI


The maxima-exec-clisp package has been revoked due to problems with the
way CLisp creates the executable.  Loading a memory image instead has
proved to make no difference in start-up time at least on a system with
a fast disk, so no disadvantage should result for the user.


Regards,
Achim.
