Lehrstuhl D f"ur Mathematik is pleased to announce the availability of
GAP version 3 release 4.
GAP 3.4 contains many new functions. The following lists only the
highlights, not the many improvments throughout the library.
GAP now supports algebras, modules, and character functions.
GAP now contains functions to compute Galois groups and field extensions.
GAP now contains functions for the determination of ``special ag
systems'' of solvable groups, which e.g. allow the determination of all
maximal subgroups, pre-Frattini groups, and Eulerian functions.
GAP contains new data libraries of transitive permutation groups and
The Meataxe, Vector Enumerator, Smash, and ANU SQ packages are new.
Currently GAP 3.4 can only be found on 'ftp.math.rwth-aachen.de', but it
should make its way to the other 'ftp' servers soon.
