MacKichan Software Announces the Release of Version 5.5 of Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook

Poulsbo, WA, July 28, 2005 – With the release of Version 5.5, MacKichan Software brings a new computational engine, enhanced graphics, and extended LaTeX typesetting capabilities to your workplace.

With the included MuPAD 3.1 computer algebra engine, you can now animate 2D and 3D plots using MuPAD’s VCAM, explore 3D plots with new OpenGL® 3D graphics, label 2D and 3D plots so that the label moves when you rotate or zoom a plot, and create 3D implicit plots. These new computational features are fully documented in a new edition of Doing Mathematics with Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Notebook.

Collaboration is easier in Version 5.5, which includes a new filter for importing documents created directly in LaTeX. As with Version 5.0 of the program, you can share your work with a wider audience. You can create typeset PDF files with Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word, which now include support for pdfTeX. Your PDF files can be viewed on any platform using a PDF viewer, such as Adobe Acrobat. Version 5.5 also supports RTF export and improved HTML export.

The addition of many new LaTeX packages extends typesetting capabilities in Version 5.5. A new edition of Typesetting Documents in Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word includes extensive troubleshooting information.

Scientific WorkPlace was chosen a Mathematics Top Products Award Winner for 2004 by the readers of Scientific Computing and Instrumentation magazine.
