FORM is a Symbolic Manipulation System. It reads symbolic expressions from files
and executes symbolic/algebraic transformations upon them. The answers are
returned in a textual mathematical representation. As its landmark feature, the
size of the considered expressions in FORM is only limited by the available
disk space and not by the available RAM.

- Improved the merge sort inside memory based on Timsort
- Fixed a bug that caused a pattern matching failure for
restricted numbers in ex-Polyratfun (gh#vermaseren/form#55)
- Fixed crashes in routines for gzip decompression
- Fixed content_ for polynomials with constant terms
- Fixed some portability issues (gh#vermaseren/form#217,

when the result is the most negative integer
- Fixed a crash on accessing the first
gh#vermaseren/form#factdollar factor of an integer
- Fixed memory leaks in routines for gzip compression
- Fixed a memory bug for local $-variables in TFORM
- Fixed a bug that made gcd_ give wrong results
- Fixed a bug in the polynomial GCD routine
- Fixed a wrong "Division by zero" runtime error by mul_(x,0)
- Fixed a bug that caused wrong results in code optimization
- Fixed transform,addargs for the case that the result becomes
0 (gh#vermaseren/form#277)
- Fixed some bug in LHS patterns with poly(rat)fun and symbols
- Fixed the problem that content_ did not handle functions
