|| ||ANNOUNCE: GENIUS 1.0.8 the "minor bugfixes" release |

|| ||Article, Thread
Genius is a general purpose calculator with many advanced capabilities.
To find out more go to:
Very few changes, but one important bugfix, plus some buildfixes,
and documentation fixes. Also we require glib and gtk 2.12 now. Yay!
We're keeping up with the times!
In any case, Genius is one of the oldest GNOME projects, it has been the
original GNOME calculator before I got wild ideas about it doing absolutely
everything. It is programmable, has a powerful language and handles many fun
features including support for matrices, rational numbers, and nice 2D and 3D
plotting. The GUI version requires GNOME2 (at least glib2 if you don't want
a GUI) a recent enough GMP library and the MPFR library. You can still use
the command line version if you prefer non-gui interface.
Here are the news in 1.0.8:
* Buildfixes for Cygwin and parallel builds (Yaakov)
* Check events before executing a command line, fixes a race which results in
display anomalies on new vte.
* Documentation updates
* Require GTK/GLib 2.12 and use the new tooltips API.
Genius is in Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, GARNOME and probably other distribution
repositories, so check those. Usually you wan to install two packages:
genius and gnome-genius (perhaps also gnome-common on some distros). Of
course it will be a little bit before this version hits those servers ...
