Note: Aldor is finally Free

changed:
-- <image src="new.gif" /> § The release of a new version of FriCAS
-  that supports [Unicode] variable names and symbols means we can
-  now use many more common mathematical symbols and non-roman
-  characters in AxiomWiki FriCAS (default) web pages. Thank you
-  Waldek!
-
-- Aldor is still only "semi-free":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semi-free_software
-  (since September 2007). As a result this much improved library
-  compiler remains unavailable to most Axiom users. Please comment
-  at FreeAldor if you want Aldor to be really free and open source!
- <image src="new.gif" /> Aldor is finally "free":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_software
  (July 2013). As a result this much improved library compiler is now
  available to FriCAS and other Axiom users. Thank you to everyone
  who signed the FreeAldor petition over the past few years. Thank
  you especially to Stephen Watt of the University of Western Ontario,
  Robert Sutor of IBM and Mike Dewar of NAG for making this happen.
  Now we finally have an opportunity to make sure that Aldor lives!

Fricas is a general purpose system for doing mathematics by computer. It is a descendant (fork) of Axiom. It is especially useful for symbolic calculations, mathematical research and for the development of new [mathematical algorithms]?. FriCAS? has a strongly-typed high-level "programming language":[FriCAS language]? for expressing a mathematical concepts. Over 1,000 mathematical domains and categories are collected in the [FriCAS Library]?. Consult the Rosetta Stone to compare FriCAS? to some other Computer Algebra systems.

Currently you can use Axiom, Fricas, Maxima (ATM rendering Maxima output is mostly broken), OpenAxiom?, Reduce, on this website. The results of your calculation will appear on the web page like this:

fricas
θ':=integrate(θ^%i, θ)

\label{eq1}{�� \ {{e}^{i \ {\log \left({��}\right)}}}}\over{1 + i}(1)
Type: Union(Expression(Complex(Integer)),...)
