Please redistribute this notice as you see fit.
Announcing Maxima 5.12.0

Maxima is a GPL'd branch of Macsyma, the venerable symbolic
computation system. Maxima 5.12.0 is a bug fix and feature
enhancement release.

Maxima has functions to work with polynomials, matrices, finite sets,
integrals, derivatives and differential equations, linear algebra,
plotting, arbitrary-precision arithmetic, etc.

Maxima can run on MS Windows and various flavors of Unix,
including MacOS X.
There is a precompiled executable installer for Windows,
source and binary RPM's for Linux, and tar.gz containing
the source distribution.

Maxima is implemented in Common Lisp; several Lisps can compile
and run Maxima, including CMUCL, SBCL, Clisp, and GCL.

The Maxima project welcomes new participants. You can contribute
in several ways: reporting bugs, fixing bugs, writing new add-on
packages, revising core functions, user interfaces, documentation, ....
Why not see what's happening on the mailing list and consider how
you might contribute to the project.
