what the press is saying about Maplesoft. This month
there was a review of Maple 10 in Evaluation Engineering.
"Maple 10 = math at multiple levels, quick and easy to use or as
complex as you require. Maple is used by scientists and engineers both to model
and analyze solutions to mathematical and engineering problems. That description
applies to many software applications, but what sets Maple 10 apart is its depth.

Primes Community Site Update
MaplePrimes is a new site designed to help the Maple user community to work together. Even though the site is barely a few weeks old, the MaplePrimes community is growing rapidly. People who post questions to the forums regularly get answers to their questions in less than an hour. Often, a simple question can turn into a full lively debate between many Maple users. For example when a member asked how to modify Maple’s code generation to solve a unique problem, three members replied each with their own solutions to the problem. There are also some very interesting blog entries that have been posted to MaplePrimes. Jan’s entry about Image processing in Maple 10 shows off how to use the new feature in interesting ways. Visit the site at beta.mapleprimes.com and check it out!
