Sagemanifolds display has deteriorated

Hi All,

I've noticed a deterioration in the display of objects in SageManifolds, I'm using the following code:

%display latex

R3 = Manifold(3, 'R3', start_index=1, latex_name=r'\mathbb{R}^3')
cartesian3d.<x,y,z> = R3.chart()

omega = R3.diff_form(1, 'omega', latex_name=r'\omega')
omega[:] = (y, z, x)

In SageMath for Windows Native 8.1 the display command would display the Greek letter omega. On the other hand in SageMath for Windows Native 9.0 and 9.1 the display command displays the word omega, not the Greek letter.

Is this a bug?

Please use

omega = R3.diff_form(1, name='omega', latex_name=r'\omega')

to get a correct LaTeX display in Sage 9.1 (notice name='omega' instead of a mere 'omega').

Actually, the change that occured between Sage 8.1 and Sage >= 8.8, is that the unnamed arguments are now assumed to be some components to initialize the diff form. For instance, you can now declare and initialize omega in a single line:

omega = R3.diff_form(1, (y, z, x), name='omega', latex_name=r'\omega')

$$\omega = y \mathrm{d} x + z \mathrm{d} y + x \mathrm{d} z$$

I understand. Thanks Eric
