Summary of changes to "Calc" Preceding 2.00
------- -- ------- --  ----  --------- ----


Version 2.00:

 * Changed to compile calc-macs/-maint, to allow "cp *.elc new-dir".

 * Improved calc-describe-bindings to avoid showing redundant ESC maps.


Version 2.00 beta 3:

 * Removed version numbers from most .el files to reduce size of patches.

 * Added a "calc-version" command.

 * Changed `M-# ? ?' to allow for modified describe-function.

 * Changed date parser to accept "Sept" as an alternative for "Sep".

 * Inhibited answers to exercise from showing up in table of contents.

 * Changed Makefile to say "texindex calc.[cfkptv]?" to avoid "calc.el".

 * Fixed up the Makefile in various other ways.

 * Rearranged banner at top of `h h' command's output.

 * Changed "make summary" to print "Calc Summary" on the title page.

 * Added "IntegSimpRules".

 * Added `M-# :', `M-# _', and `M-# Z' options.

 * Changed `^' to evaluate "[-3..-1]^-2" properly.

 * Improved `f g' to give symbolic answers for, e.g., 101:2 and -3:2.

 * Fixed a bug where `h k RET' didn't find the right place on the page.

 * Fixed a bug that formatted "x*(y ? a : b)" as "x y ? a : b".

 * Fixed a bug where defmath translated (< x 0) as (math-posp x)!

 * Fixed a bug that prevented quick-calc from working sometimes.

 * Fixed the `z ?' bug again (maybe this time for good?).

 * Fixed a bug in which `V ^' (vint) was just plain wrong, wrong, wrong!

 * Scanned for and fixed remaining bugs relating to autoloading.


Version 2.00 beta 2:

 * Changed "make info" to try "make texinfo" if "makeinfo" not found.

 * Changed to "New for Calc 2.00"; texinfo.tex chokes on apostrophes.

 * Added List Tutorial Exercise 14 (just in case there weren't enough!).

 * Added a discussion of the `Z F' command to the Programming Tutorial.

 * Improved `H a f' not to lose info if input is partially pre-factored.

 * Improved simplification of expressions like sqrt(3) + 3^3:2.

 * Changed Big mode to omit "*" in expressions like 2 sqrt(3) 5^3:4.

 * Replaced European date format D/M/Y with D.M.Y.

 * Changed `a N' and `a X' to consider the endpoints of the interval.

 * Fixed a bug where TeX mode made c*(1+a/b) look like a function call.

 * Fixed a bug formatting top-level evalto's while using selections.

 * Fixed a bug that caused `z ?' to crash.

 * Fixed a bug where `Z F' broke for argument names "t" and "nil".

 * Fixed several bugs relating to autoloading.


Version 2.00 beta 1:

 * Added "What's new in Calc 2.00" to the manual (summary of info below).

 * Added support for many GNUPLOT 3.0 features.

 * Tweaked the Makefile and calc-compile a bit more.

 * Modified to work with Zawinski's/Furuseth's optimizing byte compiler.

 * Modified Calc to garbage-collect less often (raised gc-cons-threshold).

 * Changed quick-calc to avoid autoloading so many parts of Calc.

 * Changed Calc subfiles to work properly if not byte-compiled.

 * Renamed `M-# s' to `M-# j', made `M-# s' be equivalent to `h s'.

 * Changed calc-quit to avoid reapportioning space among other windows.

 * Added `M-DEL' (calc-pop-above) key, to DEL as LFD is to RET.

 * Added `{' and `}' to scroll vertically, analogous to `<' and `>'.

 * Added `m t' for "total" algebraic mode.

 * Added `d , \' option to group digits with "\,".

 * Improved support of "prime" accent in "eqn" language mode.

 * Changed macedit's read-kbd-macro to accept a string argument in Lisp.

 * Changed calc-check-defines to use a more concise run-hooks linkage.

 * Changed auto-why mode not to say [w=more] if next msg is not urgent.

 * Made `a d' able to differentiate "a?b:c" and "a_i" formulas.

 * Changed probability dist. functions to work with `a f' and `a d'.

 * Added special constants "phi" and "gamma".

 * Added "poly" function, simpler cousin of "gpoly".

 * Added "pdeg", "plead", "pcont", "pprim"; cleaned up "pdiv" and "pgcd".

 * Added `a p' command for polynomial interpolation.

 * Added `a I' command for numerical integration; made IntegLimit variable.

 * Added `a f' to factor polynomials; moved old `a f' to `a "'.

 * Added `a a' to do partial fraction decompositions.

 * Improved `a i' to integrate many more kinds of formulas.

 * Modified `a P' to find numerical roots of high-degree polynomials.

 * Modified `c 0' through `c 9' to convert int-valued floats to integers.

 * Made sinh, arctanh, etc., expandable into exps/logs by `a f'.

 * Added more algebraic simplifications having to do with logs and exps.

 * Changed `s s', `s t', `s x', `s l' to accept an equation at prompt.

 * Changed `s i' not to store Decls if its value is the default, [].

 * Changed `s i' to store in `d O' language mode if in Normal or Big mode.

 * Rearranged `V M'/`V R' matrix mapping modes.

 * Added <#1+#2> notation for lambda expressions.

 * Extended `b l' and other binary shifts to have a 2-argument version.

 * Changed `u c' and `u t' to give unitless result for unitless input.

 * Changed sqrt(1-cos(x)^2)-to-sin(x) to be an unsafe simplification.

 * Improved simplification of sqrts, e.g., sqrt(a^2 x + a^2 y).

 * Changed solver to treat (x-a)(x-b)(x-c) more intelligently.

 * Changed Pascal language mode to use "$FFFF" for hexadecimal numbers.

 * Added support for non-decimal display of floats.

 * Changed `p' to refresh stack display if current float format uses it.

 * Changed Big mode to use subscript notation for log10(x), log(x,b), r#nnn.

 * Changed Big mode to format deriv(u,x) and tderiv(u,x) as du/dx.

 * Changed Big mode to format integ(1/x,x) as "dx/x" instead of "1/x dx".

 * Added "tty" output type for graphics commands.

 * Documented Calc's random number generation algorithm in the manual.

 * Fixed a bug involving having "(setq calc-timing t)" in .emacs.

 * Fixed a bug that incorrectly parsed "|x| - 1" in TeX mode.

 * Fixed bugs and made improvements in `a R' when widening the guess.

 * Fixed a bug that where `a S' didn't solve (x - a)^2 = (x - b)^2.

 * Fixed a bug that sometimes crashed `a P' on systems of equations.

 * Fixed a bug that prevented `b p' (calc-pack-bits) from working.

 * Fixed some bugs in which certain functions didn't get autoloaded.

 * Fixed a bug in which the date <1/1/13> was incorrectly parsed.

 * Fixed a bug which prevented `j D' from expanding (a+b)/c.

 * Fixed a bug in solver: bad inverses for sinh and cosh.

 * Fixed a bug in math-possible-signs that failed for x*0.

 * Fixed a bug where sqrt(-a) was rewritten sqrt(a)*i even if a<0.

 * Fixed a bug in line breaker when first "word" of line was too long.

 * Worked around a makeinfo bug that handled @end group/@group badly.


Version 2.00 alpha 3:

 * Changed logic for locating component .elc files to be even smarter.

 * Changed "make install" to "make compile"; added different "make install".

 * Improved "make compile" to check file dates and compile only when needed.

 * Made output of "make compile" in batch mode more compact and readable.

 * Replaced "Quick Overview" in manual with "Demonstration of Calc".

 * Changed to use keymaps for dispatching M-# and h prefix keys.

 * Added TAGS target to the Calc Makefile.

 * Split calc-grab-region into two functions, calc-grab-region/-rectangle.

 * Swapped positions of stack and trail in full-calc-keypad display.

 * Improved line-breaking algorithm for displaying long formulas.

 * Improved display of control characters in vectors shown as strings.

 * Changed `d o' to allow fraction format to specify desired denominator.

 * Changed `M-# y' to respect overwrite mode in target buffer.

 * Added `H' prefix to display-mode commands to suppress stack refresh.
