GNU APL 1.2 Released

Item posted by Jürgen Sauermann <j_sauermann> on Tue 14 Jan 2014 11:44:34 AM UTC.


I am happy to announce that GNU APL 1.2 has been released.

This release contains:

  • A new memory management for APL values.

Almost every segfault reported so far could be traced back to APL values being
deleted too early. Therefore the old memory management was replaced by a new,
shared pointer based scheme that appears to be more stable.

  • Native Functions

It is now possible to write user-defined APL functions in C++.

  • Support for emacs mode

Elias Mårtenson has developed a cool emacs mode for GNU APL, see
The support libraries for this mode are now shipped and built in GNU APL 1.2.

All bugs reported before 1/13/2014 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
