   Bill spotted a bug right after my announcement ( actually a bug fix which
turned out to be incorrect ): 'gp' was unaffected, it was a minor problem for
'libpari', but it turned out to be a critical bug for 'gp2c' [ prevented it
from translating print() statements ]. We immediately removed the archive
from the server and patched it.

After a couple (more stringent) tests, the patched version is now back on the
FTP server. So


is available again, and corresponds to pari-2.1.4.

Sorry about the confusion,
