Maplesoft, distributed in the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia by Adept Scientific, has introduced a port that allows its flagship product, Maple 10, to run natively on new Apple Macintosh models that feature Intel Core processors. Unveiled earlier this year, the Intel chips allow Mac users to compute with increased speed and agility. This new support is part of an all-platform maintenance update to Maple 10.
Maple 10 is a powerful and intuitive tool for solving complex mathematical problems and creating rich, executable technical documents. Maple users operating on the Intel-based Mac platform will benefit from significantly reduced start-up times, improved speed in rendering 2D mathematics, and real-time 3D plot manipulation that is both faster and smoother. All of the capabilities of Maple are fully supported, affording Intel-based Mac users access to all of the same features that PowerPC-based Mac users enjoy.
