On Line Docs

I've had requests over the years for on-line docs for MMA. Always just ignored them because ... well, the main reason was that the web host I was using wasn't giving me a lot of bandwidth. And, with the crappy internet I was used to out here in the boonies I didn't understand why anyone would prefer something on-line when I was already supplying the "real thing" in the distro.

Well that time is no more. I still have fairly crappy internet, but it's better that it was (my package here is 5 mps up and down). And my current web host says I have unlimited bandwidth and more storage space than I'll ever need. The docs are already all in web form. So, it's just a matter of a few links and it's up.

In the MMA pages there is now a "on line documentation" item in the left hand navigation panel.

Let me know what you think about this. Hope it's useful.

One little point: This currently reflects the version of MMA I have on MY computer, not the current distro. I'll fix that up for the next release! Promise.

Edit: Here's the standard MMA url:

Python 2.x support

There will be one more (or two) python 2.x releases, probably this year or early 2020. I'm thinking we should remove 2.x support for MM...
