Axiom has been released for March, 2010.

The source is at:
as well as the Ubuntu binary. Other binaries are being built
and will be made available as they complete.


March 2010 Release

This release concentrated on treeshaking more code into the Interpreter
volume. Support for )set break quit was added. Additional documentation
was added for branch cuts and clifford algebras. The first draft of a
new volume (10.5) on Numerics was added. An example of unicode was tested
to fulfill the long-term goal of unicode I/O support.

This release is an interim step in the process of merging the interpreter
source code into a single volume. Due to the size and complexity of the
task it will take several releases.

Three people were added to the credits list:
  John P. Fletcher <address@hidden>
  Nathaniel Daly <address@hidden
  Ted Kosan <address@hidden>

The Axiom website was completely rewritten based on a new style css
provided by Nate. This change was also made to

There is a new set option ")set break quit" per Ralf Hemmecke.
This will cause the interpreter to quit on failure. Documentation
was added to the books.
