This is copy of the annoucemnt I posted in newsgroups:

FriCAS is an advanced computer algebra system. Its capabilities
range from calculus (integration and differentiation) to abstract
algebra. It can plot functions and has integrated help system.

FriCAS 1.3.7 should build on Linux and many Unix like systems (for
example Mac OSX and Cygwin). FriCAS is build on top of Common Lisp;
several Lisps can compile and run FriCAS -- currently supported are
SBCL, Clisp, ECL, Closure CL (former OpenMCL).

BTW: In case somebody notices this: there is difference between
preliminary source tarball and current one. There was mistake
in script used to create release tarball and due to this
prelimiary tarball included .git subdriectory. This is
corrected in current tarball. There are no other differences.
