Numerous other improvements have been made to Maple 16, including:
- An updated programming guide that includes a full chapter on object-oriented programming in Maple.
- In addition to PDF versions of the manuals that can be read on e-book readers, Maple 16 manuals are now also available for the iPad®.
- A new ColorTools package with a variety of tools to work with, generate and manipulate colors. Learn more.
- New prism, sector, and annulus commands in the plottools package that let you easily incorporate those shapes into your visualizations. Learn more.
- A range of new combinatoric functions, allowing for efficient iteration over combinations and permutations. Learn more.
- Enhancements to the GraphTheory package, which allow you to compute Delaunay triangulations. Learn more.
- A number of new functions in the Magma package to test properties of finite magmas.Learn more.
- Increased flexibility in many Maple commands that means they can accept more data types as arguments. For example, many linear algebra routines which expect a matrix can now also accept arrays and vectors, so you don't need to do the conversion yourself before using the command. Learn more.
- New data type coercion abilities, which make it easy to write routines that accept similar data types, such as matrices, arrays, and vectors, or lists and sets. Maple handles the conversion automatically, so you do not have to deal with the different data-types in your code. Learn more.
- New tools to programmatically manipulate compressed gzip files from within Maple.
- Enhancements to RootFinding that allow you to quickly test for the existence of real roots. Learn more.
- Continued fraction improvements that allow for more flexibility in computing continued fraction approximations. Learn more.
