ANNOUNCE: GENIUS 1.0.25 the "Is GTK3 considered stable?" release

Genius is a general purpose calculator with many advanced capabilities.
To find out more go to:

The new thing here is port to this newfangled GTK3 by Yavor Doganov.  A
couple of new functions and bugfixes, but mostly it is just the new port.

In any case, Genius is one of the oldest GNOME projects going back to late
1997.  It was 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 1.0.25:

* Ported to GTK3 (Yavor Doganov)
* fix ncurses check (from Gentoo)
* fix encoding of empty strings in the standard library, fixes the "PrintTable"
  and "string" functions
* Add AppendVector, MakeColumnVector, MakeRowVector
* New translations (Jiri Grönroos, Rafael Fontenelle, Anders Jonsson,
  Balázs Meskó, Andre Klapper, Daneil Mustieles, Марко М. Костић,
  Wolfgang Stöggl, Miguel Rodriguez Núñez, Anders Jonsson, Alan Mortensen,
  Marek Černocký)

Genius is in Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, GARNOME, OpenSUSE, and probably other
distribution repositories, so check those.  Usually you want to install two
packages: genius and gnome-genius.  Of course, it will be a little bit before
this version hits those servers ...

Have fun,
