maxima 5.18.1

Well, as promised here is the latest stable release of maxima for the Sharp Zaurus (pdaXrom):

I know it s been a while since I promised to upload this, but things have been a little hectic lately (well alright, the weather has been rather nice). I have also included a download link to the latest clsip (2.47), as a more up to date version was required to compile this version of maxima. This compilation of clisp failed 5 of the nearly 10,000 tests (all in the bin-io test suite, and which initially concerned me). However, on tracking back to previous versions, I actually got more errors! So, in the end I used this version to compile maxima, which past its self-test 100% error free. So, I guess the errors in clisp are not significant to maxima. Please ensure you use this version of clisp for this version of maxima, as some new function calls are used which are not supported by the previous versions of clisp for the Zaurus.

As ever. you will need libsigsegv (a download link is included for this at the bottom of this post). Also, it is worth noting that previous versions of wxMaixma will not work with this version of maxima; the way the two applications connect has been changed. Check back in a few days for an updated version of wxMaxima that works with this version of maxima.
