When will there be a new version of Scientific word?

Postby steve_656525 » Sat Mar 26, 2011 5:20 pm

I looked at this software, but noticed there was no release or new version for 5 years or so now.

Is this software still being maintained?

I am worried about buying it now, because when I see a company that did not make a new release for this long, I think there is something wrong with it. They seem to have made some minor update 2 years ago.

any one has any ideas on this?

Steve

Hello,
MacKichan Software is still supporting Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook. They maintain an excellent forum for these products (http://forum.mackichan.com/). I have used Scientific WorkPlace for years; it is an excellent and useful software package. (Scientific WorkPlace = Scientific Word + a computer algebra engine. This engine is worth the extra money if you work in the mathematical sciences. I produced a video on some of the features of SW(P,N). If you are interested, I can send you the link by a private message.)
MacKichan Software advertised at some recent professional meetings that version 6 is coming.
Regards,
Tom Price
