New release of GAP 4.7.9 was announced in the beginning of December 2015. In this guest post (reproduced from here), Alexander Konovalov tells about his work from research software engineering perspective.
This week I was mainly wearing my Research Software Engineer (RSE) hat. RSE support for the GAP system has three related strands: development of the core GAP system; support of package authors and other GAP users; training future users and contributors to the system. They are all important for the thriving community of users and developers, and this week I’ve done something to advance each of them.
Sage 6.8 was released on 26 July 2015 and is available for download from the SageMath website. This release closes 351 tickets and incorporates changes made by 95 contributors, including 13 first making their first contribution to Sage. Among other improvements and bugfixes, this Sage release includes also the latest GAP 4.7.8 (June 2015) and some fixes in Sage’s interface to GAP and its packages. Please see the release announcement for further details.
GAP 4.7.8 release, dated 9th June 2015, is now publicly available. It fixes several bugs reported since the previous release (February 2015), and also includes 2 new and 17 updated GAP packages. Furthermore, this is the first release since the establishing of the official development repository for GAP on GitHub, so it also checks that everything (GAP codebase, release wrapping scripts, infrastructure for regression tests, etc.) has been migrated properly and works as expected.
