ANNOUNCE: GENIUS 1.0.26 the "Dilapidated barn" release

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

A number of fixes and minor improvements has again amassed in git requiring a
release of the pressure.  The file dialogs are native now, starting
gnome-genius twice no longer starts a global pandemic (sorry about that), and
the range boxes in the plotting window are now evaluated so that one can put
actual expressions there like pi^2.  Plus a bunch of other minor issues were
fixed, leading to more stability in the middle east (and everywhere else
where genius is run).

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 1.0.26:

* The range boxes in the plot dialog are now evaluated rather than being
  spin boxes, so that one can use arbitrary genius expressions there.
* Always spawn a new instance, none of this uniqueness nonsense.
* Various fixes stemming from the port to GTK3 and from various new compiler
* File chooser dialogs are now native.
* Fix saving of settings in the presence of old style settings directories.
* Set default gtksourceview colorscheme to "kate" as "classic" is hard
  to see in dark mode.  It can be set in the config file (no GUI currently)
* Translation updates (Daniel Mustieles, Enrico Nicoletto, Anders Jonsson,
  Yuri Chornoivan, Rodrigo Costa, Daniel Șerbănescu, Мирослав Николић,
  Florentina Mușat, Jordi Mas, Tim Sabsch, Andika Triwidada,
  Henrique Machado Campos, Rafael Fontenelle)

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,
