Re: Latest version of KCL/AKCL

The current version of AKCL is now 615.   This was released about
3 days ago.

It contains a number of bug fixes mentioned in the akcl-ChangeLog.   AKCL
is distributed simultaneously at

cli.com [a machine in japan]

The bandwidth from north america is usually higher to rascal.   A number
of other sites pick up this distribution, but usually with some delay.

The kcl.tar.Z file which is also required to build AKCL, has had the
readme changed to reflect new postal addresses for Hagiya and Yuasa.
It is otherwise identical.

There is also a beta version of akcl for DOS on
math.utexas.edu:pub/beta2.zip.  See the readme.dos in that
distribution.  Building from the source under dos is not yet fully
automated due to the lack of a standard make and standard shell under
dos.  The 615 sources contain most patches required.  The beta version
has successfully compiled and run maxima, nqthm, and axiom (an 800 +
file algebra system from ibm).


Here is a list of the main machines under which akcl builds automatically
from the sources.
