This is a hotfix release, fixing an issue with automake-based build system.

The fix is only relevant if you are going to build yacas from sources using automake. Otherwise everything in this release is identical to version 1.4.0. Hence, no binary packages are provided for this release.

Please note that the automake-based build system is considered obsolete and the cmake-based build system should be used instead.

This is the first release of yacas after moving over to GitHub, license change and switching to the new webpage and new documentation system. Despite all the changes, yacas keeps up as a small, flexible, portable, backward-compatible, easy to use and extend Computer Algebra System that just makes the computer calculations easy.
