Dear GAP Forum,
Since the release of GAP-3.4, several new character tables have been
calculated with the help of GAP, or turned to GAP library format.
But until now there was no upgrade of the table library.
An upgraded version of the table library is now available via anonymous
'ftp' on the usual GAP servers (for example 'ftp.math.rwth-aachen.de'),
as archive 'newtbl.zoo' in the directory 'pub/incoming'.
The file 'newtbl.readme' in the same directory lists all details about
this upgrade. The library contains 74 new Brauer tables and more than
100 new ordinary tables, among those 84 tables of perfect groups as given
on the microfiche in the book ``Perfect Groups'' by D. Holt and W. Plesken,
and some maximal subgroups of simple groups and their extensions.
The size of the archive is about 2 MB.
I hope you will enjoy the tables.
