The next major release of GAP, version 4.10.0, has been announced in November 2018. You can find further information and links to the release announcement and an overview of new features in this post on the CoDiMa website.
It’s been a long time coming, but Semigroups 3.0 is nearly ready for release. We’re going to have a hackathon to squash all the remaining bugs, add documentation, replace TODOs, and generally polish and tweak the package until it’s ready to be released! The kick-off is at 11am on Monday May 29th in Maths Lecture Theatre D. Everyone is welcome to join!
