45<H1>Overview of AliRoot </H1>
46
47<P>This page summarizes the status of <B>Version 3.01</B> that will be
48released in May 1999. More details can be found in the <A
49HREF="AliRootHelp.html">User Guide</A>.
50
51<P>The Geant3.21 based simulation program <B>galice</B> for the ALICE
52detector underwent major changes in programming language, number of lines
53of code, and supported platforms since its first release (Version 1) used
54for the TP.
55
56<P> Version 2 of the simulation program galice amounted to about 40 kLOC of
57Fortran code and 10 kLOC of C++.
58
59<P> Since then, the simulation program itself and the framework supporting
60it underwent changes reported during several meetings, to come to the
61present structure that it is believed can accomodate its <a href=

63evolution</a>.
