GT.M V4.4-003 available

GT.M V4.4-003 has been released. Updated binaries, documentation (new Programmers Guide and Messages and Recovery Procedures Manual) and source code are available for download, as are release notes (http://sourceforge.net/docman/display_doc.php?docid=19727&group_id=11026).

The most significant enhancement for this release is functionality to permit the creation of UNIX shared libraries containing object modules generated by GT.M on IBM pSeries AIX and HP PA-RISC HP-UX platforms, extending to those platforms functionality that was previously available on HP Alpha/AXP Tru64 UNIX.

For users of GT.M on x86 Linux, the main benefits are performance enhancements and bug fixes. In particular, some bugs reported on Source Forge have been fixed, as well as a bug affecting users of some versions of VistA, in which a SET $PIECE statement with a $SELECT in the second (delimiter) argument gave undefined results (and for which a temporary fix was previously released with GT.M V4.4-FT01). Improvements and bug fixes submitted by the GT.M open source user community are also included. Details are in the release notes.

Please upgrade to this version of GT.M, and as always, please provide us with your feedback. Thank you very much.
