13@sc{Singular} is a Computer Algebra system for polynomial computations
14with special emphasize on the needs of commutative algebra, algebraic
15geometry, singularity theory and polynomial system solving. For a more

23The current version @value{VERSION} is an alpha-release of the upcoming
24new release version 2-0 (should be there at the beginning of
252000).
26
27Although there are no known bugs, it is to be
28expected that the current version @value{VERSION} is not as stable as
29the 1.2 version(s), since major changes were done to the @sc{Singular}
30kernel. Therefore, it is important to us, that users try out this new
31version and report their bugs/comments and suggestions.
32
33Furthermore, the current version is generally not yet as fast as version
341.2. But this is going to change dramatically in the upcoming release
35version(s).
