Deal 3.1.9 Released

I was doing some research based on the work of Gordon Bower, and I stumbled on a few issues that apparently have been around for a while.

Changes in 3.1.9:
  • Fixed issue #14 - smartstack was broken on OS X
  • Fixed issue #15 - holding procedures implementation incomplete 
  • Added documentation of pattern functions to advanced.html
  • Minor documentation fix
