GNU APL 1.7 Released

Item posted by Jürgen Sauermann <j_sauermann> on Fri 17 Mar 2017 05:13:17 PM UTC.


I am happy to announce that GNU APL 1.7 has been released.

GNU APL is a free implementation of the ISO standard 13751 aka.
"Programming Language APL, Extended",

This release contains:

  • bug fixes,

  • ⎕SQL (replaces the SQL native function),

  • ⎕DLX (an implementation of Donald Knuth's dancing links

  algorithm, aka. Algorithm X or DLX).

  • an interface from the programming languages Erlang and Elixir

  into GNU APL. With this interface one can use APL's vector
  capabilities in programs written in Erlang or Elixir. Or from
  the Phoenix web framework.

All bugs reported before Mar. 17, 2017 were fixed.

The GNU APL project lives at:
and can be downloaded from: or any
GNU mirror.

Bug reports and other suggestions are welcome at

Have fun!

Dr. Jürgen Sauermann
Author and Maintainer of GNU APL
