DYALOGue - Summer 2016

Welcome to the summer edition of DYALOGue

As I write this article, summer seems to be on hold – the UK has decided to BREXIT from the EU, the Prime Minister has been replaced and there is a bit of uncertainty (to say the very least) about the economic future in the UK. I am therefore very happy to be able to present lots of good news from Dyalog in this issue.

Version 15.0 is out!

It gives us great pleasure to announce that Version 15.0 is now commercially available on all platforms. We have also taken the opportunity to make it easier for students and non-commercial programmers to get a free Dyalog Licence. This article takes you through the highlights.
