[geogebra-cas] Re: GeoGebra CAS update

Here is an update on MathPiper.  Sherm has been busy redesigning the
integration code and I have been completely reorganizing the scripts
to make them easier to debug and extend.  The ability to halt a
long-running calculation has also been added by having MathPiper run
in a separate thread as an option.

Our overall goal at this point is still to fix all of the bugs that
people have located and we continue to make progress towards this
goal.
