This release is relevant for various reasons. First of all, several important bugs have been fixed which now allow Maxima to be built using ECL. Second, there have been serious improvements in performance coming mainly from a better garbage collector scheme (incremental with generations) and a threaded interpreter. In some cases this results in a factor 2 reduction in execution time.
