FriCAS 1.0.0 has been released.
FriCAS is an advanced computer algebra system. Its capabilities range from
calculus (integration and differentiation) to abstract algebra. It can plot
functions and has integrated help system.
FriCAS 1.0.0 should build on Linux, many Unix like systems (for
example Mac OSX and Solaris 10) and Windows.
FriCAS is build on top of Common Lisp; several Lisps can compile
and run FriCAS, including GCL, SBCL, Clisp and OpenMCL.

Question: does anybody still like/use literate programming?
Here with noweb?
Personally I find the use of noweb distracting.
* creates nice static documentation
* unified documentation format across languages
* creates static documentation, batch run
* all text files no longer have their native extension
* confuses the text editor (highlighting)
* makes the build more complicated
* makes the use of automated tools more complicated
* doesn't use the 'native' documentation features
of the language and its development environments
* most better IDEs have some source browsing feature
* software is less often printed to paper as it used to be.
Today most developers have access to laptops or computer
with LCD screens where browsing source code fine.
* web based tools for viewing source repositories may
also have source browsers (with linking, highlighting, ...)
which also let you browse changes
Any experience from Axiom^h^h^h^h^h FriCAS?
