I didn't write a blog post in a while since I have been active on the list. For this reason there has been a lot of progress since the last one, which I am not going to mention in detail. Instead, let me just focus on today's work: I implemented wrappers for the factorization functionality in flint (recall that this is one of the (H)igh priority tasks that need finishing). Hence there are new classes fmpz_factorxx, nmod_poly_factorxx, fmpz_poly_factorxx, fmpz_mod_poly_factorxx, together with associated methods/functions. As far as I can tell this is all the factoring functionality. This was quite a marathon, but I implemented, tested, and documented all of these today.
