Hello GAP Forum:

This is to announce that the next version of GAP's error-correcting
codes package GUAVA, version 1.9, is ready. Many thanks to Frank
Luebeck for help with this. I hope the permission problems Frank
discovered are corrected.

 From the CHANGES file:

Version 1.9 has:
   o Faster MinimumDistance algorithm (joint with Aron Foster, a student).
   o MinimumDistanceLeon algorithm (joint with Aron Foster).
   o Faster PutStandard form algorithm (with GAP's Frank Luebeck).
   o New PermutationGroup command (for possibly non-binary codes).
   o New PermutationDecode command.

See the manual on the web page for more information and downloading:


Pleas email me if you experience any problems.
