Mathematics is ubiquitous and Ray Girvan finds that Maple 10 has evolved to put a friendly face on deep maths
When the imminent Mathematica release 5.0 was announced, at the beginning of June, it was the first full-digit upgrade for four years. Even incremental updates had only come twice within that time; that's unusual these days.
It's some while since I last looked at TecPlot - more than two years, in fact, at release 9. A lot has happened in the time between. Version 10 will have come to market by the time readers see this article, though as I finalise it I have seen only as far as the final release candidate beta.
