Mathematica 4.1 Adds Features and Platforms and Increases Performance
November 27, 2000--Wolfram Research, Inc. is proud to
announce the release of Mathematica 4.1, the latest version of the world's
leading technical computing system.
Key new features in Mathematica 4.1 include the following:
- Enhanced symbolic differential equation solvers
- Dramatic speed improvements in statistics functions
- Java integration with J/Link 1.1
- Improved MathML integration including copying and pasting of formulas to
- New support for PowerPC Linux and AlphaLinux platforms
- New and faster import and export filters for Excel files, tabular data,
compressed BMP, DXF, and STL
Mathematica 4.1 also incorporates the newest results from Wolfram
Research's ongoing research and development effort. This effort has been
focused on finding new ways to help technical professionals solve two of
their primary challenges: handling ever larger data sets and increasingly
complex calculations, and communicating technical content faster and more
efficiently over the internet.
Another exciting new development is Mathematica 4.1's ability to integrate with
Java via J/Link.
"Java is having an enormous impact on the way corporations
and developers in general think about software. The complete and transparent
integration of Mathematica and Java with J/Link opens up exciting new
possibilities for our users by making all of the functionality of Java applications
available in Mathematica while at the same time opening up all of Mathematica to Java
developers," says Lars Hohmuth, Manager of Strategic Marketing at Wolfram Research.
Mathematica now works better for large academic and corporate networks.
Transparent network licensing simplifies system administration, and
expanded import and export features allow Mathematica to integrate more
smoothly with other software.
