Hi Markus,

thank you for your interest for PolyMath !
I add the polymath mailing-list in CC. This is a better place for
discussions for PolyMath issues instead of Pharo-users.

Unfortunately, I dunno exactly how much changes has been done compared to
the original version, because we add a lot of unit tests, we fix bugs, we
add new functionalities like automatic differentiation, ODE solvers, data
analysis tools, etc ... Even if Didier Besset's code still represents an
important part of PolyMath, this percentage decreases as we add more

If you want to continue to use the original code, this is still possible to
find the original version of SqueakSource I think.

I would be interested to know what you are doing with PolyMath. If this is
something that you could not share here, you can send me a private email.
You can also contribute bugs/code:

If someone want a port of last version of PolyMath to VW, please contribute
some fundings :-)
