OpenAxiom-1.1.0 has been released

I'm pleased to announce that OpenAxiom-1.1.0 has been released on
February 14, 2008.

OpenAxiom is an open source platform for scientific and engineering
computations. This is a major release with respect to
previous OpenAxiom release. New features include:

* batch processing: This release is the first from the Axiom
family of CAS to support batch processing in the following forms:
(i) it can be used as an interpreter, like interpreters for
Python, Perl, or Ruby;
(ii) it can be used as a compiler in batch mode, as one would
invoke GCC.

* unevaluated arguments of arbitrary types;

* union-like domains with proper encapsulation;

* better support for domains representation definition, much like

* many bugs fixes :-)

More information on new features can be found at

OpenAxiom-1.1.0 is known to build on major Unix systems, GNU/Linux
