Name        : pari
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 2.3.4
Release     : 5.fc13
URL         : http://pari.math.u-bordeaux.fr/
Summary     : Number Theory-oriented Computer Algebra System
Description :
PARI is a widely used computer algebra system designed for fast
computations in number theory (factorizations, algebraic number
theory, elliptic curves...), but also contains a large number of other
useful functions to compute with mathematical entities such as
matrices, polynomials, power series, algebraic numbers, etc., and a
lot of transcendental functions.

This package contains the shared libraries. The interactive
calculator PARI/GP is in package pari-gp.

Update Information:

This update removes xdvi (and its long list of dependencies) as a requirement of
the main pari package and replaces it with a dependency in the pari-gp package
on any application that can display DVI files via xdg-open.    A number of minor
packaging clean-ups are also included in this update.

* Thu Jul  8 2010 Paul Howarth <paul at city-fan.org> - 2.3.4-5
- various clean-ups to pacify rpmlint:
  - uses spaces instead of tabs consistently
  - mark %{_datadir}/emacs/site-lisp/pari/pariemacs.txt as %doc
  - mark %{_datadir}/pari/{PARI,doc,examples} as %doc
  - fix permissions of gp
- don't strip gp so we get debuginfo for it
- move here documents out to separate source files
- make gp subpackage require same version-release of main package
* Wed Jul  7 2010 Paul Howarth <paul at city-fan.org> - 2.3.4-4
- apply patch from Patrice Dumas to use xdg-open rather than xdvi to display
  DVI content, and move the xdg-open requirement from the main package to the
  gp sub-package (#530565)
* Sat Jul 25 2009 Fedora Release Engineering <rel-eng at lists.fedoraproject.org> - 2.3.4-3
- Rebuilt for https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_12_Mass_Rebuild
