I know there are rules regarding the automation of GURPS, however I came across a doubt in reality two ...
1 - This automation is limited to any version of GURPS
2 - Is the 3rd Edition still active there or has it been discontinued giving place to the 4th Edition?
I ask this because I wonder if automation could be done in a discontinued edition.

The same rules apply to all versions of GURPS and include the Man-to-Man rules (GURPS predecessor).

Really there is nothing stopping you from completely automating the ruleset, but you can only do it for personal use. The moment you distribute it to other people, then you will be in breach of their policy. However automating GURPS would not be a trivial thing and in my opinion the rewards are not worth the effort you would need to invest. 10% gain for 90% extra work.
