Bowing to popular demand, we added
the comedi control and
measurement device interface,
the grass geographical
the gri language for
scientific graphics programming and the
ipython python shell.
We also re-introduced the lyx
LaTeX document processor that was cut from quantian 0.2, and
added XEmacs which
Packages which had been suggested but could not been added are
gromacs (no native Debian package), giac (inofficial Debian
package not quite up to packaging standards) and
scipy (uninstallable, inofficial Debian package).
As a general rule, official packages are clearly preferred.
