Clifford Multivector Toolbox release 0.7 for MATLAB

We are pleased to announce the release of version 0.7 of the Clifford Multivector Toolbox:
Clifford Multivector Toolbox for Matlab

Release Notes for Version 0.7

The clifford_signature function now checks for existing files e0.m, e1.m etc, and, if they exist AND their content is correct, it does not overwrite them. This avoids pointless timestamp updates on a large number of files, but at the same time, ensures that any change made to the contents inserted into these files by a future release will automatically update any existing files when the appropriate algebra is initialised.

The installation instructions in Read_me.txt have been updated to specify not to use the MATLAB toolbox folder for installation (point 1 in the file). The test code has also been updated to check that the clifford folder is not located inside the MATLAB installation hierarchy.

The clifford_signature function no longer outputs diagnostic information when initialising an algebra (this makes the test code run with less output). The test code now lists each algebra before it is tested instead. As before clifford_signature with no parameters outputs the diagnostic information.
