The Vaucanson Team is very happy to announce that Vancanson 2.0
was just released! It represents two years of development effort
(and two days of documentation effort...).
Vaucanson is a free-software platform for manipulating weighted
rational expressions and automata (including transducers). It
aims at genericity and efficiency (hence provides a fast
low-level C++ API), but also at user friendliness (hence provides
a high-level C++ API, a Python binding, and an IPython-powered
interactive and visual shell). It is a joint project between
Jacques Sakarovitch (Télécom Paritech), Sylvain Lombardy (LaBRI),
Akim Demaille and Alexandre Duret-Lutz (LRDE/EPITA).
Everything about this release is available here:
A (partial) list of the user visible changes is available here:
A (way too short but regularly updated) documentation of the IPython
interface can be found here:
