I would like to see a recent maxima/wxmaxima version to be added to a (still
open) repo

the latest maxima version is 5.17: http://maxima.sourceforge.net/
the latest in ANY of the repos is 5.13
the Debian package of 5.17 installs and runs fine:

my favourite GUI wxmaxima has plenty of improvements that need maxima at
least 5.17: http://wxmaxima.sourceforge.net/
there are wxmaxima versions available for maxima 5.17 on
* the version (0.8.2) for ubuntu 9.04 does not run on my hardy with 5.17
maxima from debian
* the version (0.8.1) for ubuntu 8.10 DOES RUN  on my hardy with 5.17 maxima
from debian

Thus I would like to see an ubuntu version of maxima 5.17 in Jaunty or
Karmic (the earliest possible) and a corresponding wxmaxima (0.8.1 or 0.8.2)
as well.
After that I'll be happy to help its backporting to hardy.

thanks for your work
