Use wolframscript under raspbian stretch?

Does anyone know why wolframscript does not work under raspbian stretch? Executing "whereis wolframscript" at the terminal gives no result, however "whereis env" results in "env: /usr/bin/env" indicating that the env executable is there?

Moreover, is this due to some bug/oversight or is wolframscript invoked differently under stretch versus jessie?

Has anyone else had this experience with RPi3?

The previously available wolframscript was not compatble with Raspbian Stretch. An updated version will be released soon.

Hi Ilian, will the updated version of wolframscript be made available as a download or through the repository? Thank you for the timely reply.

I expect it will be installable via apt-get along with the next release of Mathematica for the Raspberry Pi.

The new packages for wolframscript and wolfram-engine 11.2.0 are now available and can be installed as usual

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wolframscript wolfram-engine

These are no longer Jessie-compatible, right?

Yes, no longer compatible.
