Dear GAP Forum,

Following the recent announcement of GAP 4.4.11, we announce the  
release of
GAP 4 release 4 update 12 (GAP 4.4.12 for short), which is available  
now from
the GAP Web pages and FTP site. We have made this release quickly  
after the
previous release due to the discovery of a bug introduced in GAP  
4.4.11 which
could cause GAP to crash whenever a GAP function was executed while  
loops or functions were parsed, for example via the hooks used for  

This update also fixes a bug which made command-line editing unusable  
on 64
bit Mac platforms.

See http://www.gap-system.org/Download/Updates/gap4r4p12.html.

Please note that we have not been able to provide with this release a  
for versions of the Apple Mac operating system prior to Mac OS X. If  
you need
to run GAP on such a platform please contact us by email to
support at gap-system.org.

John McDermott,
for the GAP Group.
