Maple 18.01a Update for Mac and 64-bit Linux

Maple 18.01a, a maintenance update, is available to all Mac and 64-bit Linux users running Maple 18. Windows and 32-bit Linux users do not need, and cannot install, this update.

This update corrects a problem a small number of users have experienced when doing certain types of floating point computations on very recent hardware. When the problem occurs, instead of giving the result, Maple issues a “lost kernel connection” error message and must be restarted.

While this problem does not occur on most computers, we recommend that all Maple 18 customers running on Mac or 64-bit Linux install this update to ensure they do not encounter this problem. This update can be safely applied to any Mac or 64-bit Linux computer.

Who is entitled to Maple 18.01a?
Maple 18.01a is available to all users running Maple 18 on Mac or 64-bit Linux. If you are running Maple on Windows or 32-bit Linux, you do not need this update.

All Maple 18 Mac and 64-bit Linux users should install this update.

Do these updates apply to Maple 18 Japanese Edition?
Yes. Anyone using Maple 18 Japanese Edition on Mac or 64-bit Linux should also install this update.
