Hello everyone,

The uman 3.2 (user manual) module is released and available for Scilab 6.0, 6.1 
and 2023.0 (and forthcoming Scilab versions :-)

Newcomers may find  a presentation of uman() @ 

This version works with the new Scilab's environment :

 *   uman 3.1 was broken for Scilab 2023.0. uman 3.2 restores it.

 *   uman item b
still lists bugs related to the item. From the Scilab console, it addresses the 
new (and right) Scilab bug tracker
    *   For Scilab items : https://gitlab.com/scilab/scilab/-/issues
    *   For items of packages on the forges : 

Please note that the performances of the Gitlab search engines are much poorer 
than with the former Bugzilla bug tracker. uman_b features and help page have 
been updated accordingly.

 *   uman item w
still addresses help pages on the web. It will be even more useful than before 
Scilab's migration. Indeed, IMHO, the new search engine  @ 
https://help.scilab.org is far less accurate than before the migration.
uman .. w  has unchanged performances.

 *   uman item @s
is now available. After @ and @d, this one digs on Stackoverflow about Scilab 
and the given item.
Performances are lower than when digging in users@ and dev@ mailing lists, 
because Stackoverflow search engine is much poorer, and because the number of 
available discussion threads is way smaller.

 *   45 new references are added: removed functions, redirections, etc

 *   1 bug fixed: using a variable named String in the session killed uman :-/

Some uman() features were added to the help browser in Scilab 6.1.1 :

Scilab 6.1.0 :
[cid:part1.QHqzhgRn.gFhVCpXT@free.fr]   Scilab 6.1.1 :

and in preferences. uman() still goes beyond.

Best regards
Samuel Gougeon
