GSLL is largely complete and usable, with functioning interfaces to
most of GSL. Some chapters are not yet ported. Known bugs are
documented in the file documentation/status.text. It is possible the
user interface will change but not to a great extent, so the current
version should still be considered alpha.
most of GSL. Some functionality is not yet ported, particularly those
introduced in the more recent versions of GSL; see
<a href="missing-features.text">missing-features.text</a>
for more details. Known bugs are documented in
<a href="status.text">status.text</a>. Work is ongoing to both
remedy those deficiencies and to simplify the user interface by
changing more required arguments into optional or key arguments with
useful default values. Typically, these arguments bind GSL objects
and arrays used internally or for function return.
