1 The problems we faced with ecls and maxima as a result of
2 the switch to asdf 3 are over and the sage-on-gentoo overlay
3 is again fully working.
5 A big thank to Martin Von Gagern who did the work!
7 Sage is fully compatible with ecls 12.12.1 and 13.1.5.
8 However I am warning people wanting to use maxima 5.30
9 that changes in the way maxima handle some assumption
10 may lead to some breakage.
11 If you don't want that to happen to you, stick to maxima 5.29.1.
13 The overlay currently provides its own version of
14 ecls 12.12.1-r5 : while Andrey integrated a patch I wrote
15 to sanitize asdf 3 handling in this version, it needed an extra
16 cherry picked patch from upstream to be completely sane.
17 maxima 5.29.1-r3
18 maxima-5.30.0-r1
19 Both of these ebuilds have a fix by Martin to build
20 the naxima ecls library that is used by sage.
21 Building that library, and then building a working library,
22 was quite challenging and I cannot thank Martin enough for
23 sticking at it until he was done.
