+ * Fixed a bug which crashed Calc 1.04 under Epoch.

+ * Fixed a bug which messed up Calc Trail's mode line, among other things.

+ * Fixed a bug which caused trail ">" to show only when in Trail buffer.

+ * Fixed a bug in which "calc" called "calc-grab-region" with too few args.

+ * Fixed bugs in both implementation and documentation of calc-perm.

+ * Fixed a bug in which calc-simplify-extended always used radians.

+ * Fixed a bug where calc-comma failed to override "polar" mode.

+ * Fixed a bug doing mixed arithmetic on rectangular+polar complex numbers.

+ * Fixed several bugs in transcendental functions with complex arguments.

+ * Fixed a bug in which `a s' simplified "x / .5" to ".5 x".

+ * Fixed numerous other bugs in various parts of Calc.

+ * Completed the "Hooks" section of the "Internals" chapter of the manual.

+ * Included a copy of revision history (from README) in calc.el.

+ * Added the "calc-split" feature to split calc-ext.el into smaller bits.

+ * Changed calc-unpack to unpack floats and fractions, too.

+ * Added "mant", "xpon", and "scf" functions for decomposing floats.

+ * Fixed a bug in the "y" command with positive prefix arguments.

+ * Rearranged binary shift/rotate command keys to be a bit more convenient.

+ * Fixed a bug in which simplifying "(0/0) * 2" crashed with a Lisp error.

+ * Made `H F' [ffloor] and friends faster for very large arguments.

+ * Made calc-define-del more robust.

+ * Handled pasting of data into the Calculator using the mouse under X.

+ * Made overlay-arrow variables buffer-local to avoid interference.

+ * Fixed a problem in which Calc Trail buffer got stuck after a C-x C-w.

+ * Changed math-choose to compute n-choose-m faster when m is large.

+ * Fixed some problems with TeX mode.

+ * Fixed a bug that prevented `b s' from working without a prefix argument.

+ * Added "calc-eval" function.

+ * Improved calc-grab-region.

+ * Fixed a bug in Tutorial: telephone pole height/distance were switched!

+ * Fixed a few other things in the manual.

+ * Added "full-calc" command.

+ * Added "calc-insert-variables" (`Z I') command.

+ * Quick Calc now works even if you are already in the minibuffer.

+ * Fixed a bug in math-mul-bignum-digit which affected math-and, etc.

+ * Definition of "Hectares" was wrong in units table.

+ * Fixed a bug in calc-execute-kbd-macro concerning undo and refresh.

+ * Bound "calc-undo" to `C-x u' as well as `C-_' and `U'.

+ * Added a tutorial section to the manual.

+ * Next and Prev for node Strings in the manual were reversed; fixed.

+ * Changed "'bignum" in calc-isqrt-bignum-iter to "'bigpos".

+ * Fixed a bug that prevented "$" from working during algebraic entry.

+ * Fixed a bug caused by an X (last-X) command following a K (macro) cmd.

+ * Fixed a bug in which K command incorrectly formatted stack in Big mode.

+ * Added space between unary operators and non-flat compositions.

+ (Otherwise, "-(a/b)" in Big mode blended the minus sign into the rule!)

+ * Fixed formatting of (-1)^n in Big mode.

+ * Fixed some problems relating to "not" operator in Pascal language mode.

+ * Fixed several bugs relating to V M ' and V M $ sequences.

+ * Fixed matrix-vector multiplication to produce a vector.

+ * Introduced Z ` ... Z ' commands; renamed old Z ' to Z #.

+ * Fixed various other bugs.

+ * Added calc-settings-file variable suggested by C. Witty.

+ * First official release of Calc.

+ * If you used the Beta test version (0.01), you will find that this

+ version of Calc is over 50% larger than the original release.

+ General areas of improvement include much better algebra features;

+ operations on units; language modes; simplification modes; interval

+ arithmetic; vector mapping and reduction. Other new commands include

+ calc-fraction and calc-grab-region. The program has been split into

+ two parts for faster loading, and the manual is more complete.
