I'm very excited to be able to tell you that today--after many
years of development--we're releasing a radically new version of
We think it's going to prove even more important than the
original release of Mathematica 1.0 nearly twenty years ago.
It has at least a thousand new ideas--some small, some
huge--which together let us reach a completely new level of
Much more becomes automated. There's a sweeping extension in the
types of data and problems that Mathematica can immediately
handle. And above all, we've created a surprising new technology
that lets one work in a fundamentally more dynamic, interactive
and accessible way.
You can see the details at http://www.wolfram.com.
We think this is going to tremendously expand the range of
potential users and uses of Mathematica.
We'd be pleased to hear your reactions and suggestions.
We think this is the beginning of a whole new era in computing.
We hope you'll be part of it!
