Maxima 5.33 change log
New items in share:
* package alt-display: hook for nonstandard display functions
* package kovacicODE: Kovacic method for ordinary differential equations
* package odes: several methods for ordinary differential equations
* package trigtools: manipulating trigonometric function expressions
* package sound: functions for audio synthesis
Changes in core:
* promote result to bigfloat on floating point overflow
* variables declared to be irrational are considered real
* display floats with leading "0." instead of "." only
* function tex: accepts Lisp objects now
* functions expintegral_shi, expintegral_chi: limits
* functions hankel_1, hankel_2: numerically evaluate when the order is complex
* function declare: rational and irrational properties mutually exclusive
* functions get, put: when first argument is a string, assume it is the name of an operator
* functions round, truncate: handle arguments of zeroa and zerob
* functions for Galois fields: improve power tables and introduce nth root
* operator @: TeX property
Other changes:
* package ezunits: TeX property for units conversion operator
* package maximaMathML: some updates
* package draw: support for gnuplot terminal canvas
* documentation: updating Brazilian Portuguese translation of user manual
Bug fixes:
* 2703: plotting option legend causes an error
* 2702: plotting option adapt_depth causes an error
* 2701: plotting option logy causes an error
* 2700: plot option psfile causes an error
* 2699: nticks seems ignored
* 2696: *prompt-prefix* and *prompt-suffix* not inserted for askinteger / asksign
* 2695: kill kills built-in properties of operator after user-defined property
* 2687: call-arguments-limit easily exhaustable in tex1
* 2682: Function zeta fails numerically for large numbers that aren't even integers
* 2681: solve_rec wrong result
* 2676: integral incorrect when variable is subscripted
* 2675: maxima will not do the simplest of definite integrals and will not factor otherwise
* 2671: Since 4833b5 Maxima (with ECL at least) outputs palette numbers gnuplot
unnumbered bugs:
* bug in gnuplot_term option
* bug in starplot
* bug in ratinterpol
* %e^^A should not simplify to %e^A
* %pi is now correctly rounded with high probability
* embedded plotting bug in XMaxima
* bug in single-label case for plotting option 'label'
* bug in comment indentation in Emacs
* $CONS and friends should treat lists the same as other expressions
* mailing list 2014-02-27: "assigning to a list of structure fields does not work"
