Maplesoft Announces Support for the Intel-Based Mac Platform
Mac Users Can Now Experience the Full Power of Maple 10

WATERLOO, CANADA, June 5, 2006 Maplesoft™, the leading provider of high-performance software tools for engineering, science and mathematics, announced today the availability of a port that allows Maple™ 10 to run natively on new Mac® models that feature Intel® Core™ processors. Unveiled earlier this year, the Intel chips allow Mac users to compute with increased speed and agility.

Maple 10, Maplesoft’s flagship product, is the most powerful and intuitive tool for solving complex mathematical problems and creating rich, executable technical documents. Maple users operating on the Intel-based Mac platform will benefit from significantly reduced start-up times, improved speed in rendering 2-D mathematics, and real-time 3-D plot manipulation that is both faster and smoother. All of the capabilities of Maple are fully supported, affording Intel-based Mac users access to all of the same features that PowerPC-based Mac users enjoy.

"Individually, Apple and Intel offer industry-leading products," said Maplesoft CEO Jim Cooper. "In combination, they enable Mac users to experience the full power of Maple 10. With new levels of speed and responsiveness, Maple is proud to provide the highest level of computational power in math modeling today."

The Mac-Intel port will be available directly from the Maplesoft Web Store at in early June or via Maplesoft Sales at 1-800-267-6583. Outside of the US & Canada, the product will be available from Maplesoft reseller partners. A list of partners is available online at
