This new release delivers significant performance improvements and includes Xcos, hybrid dynamic systems modeler and simulator
ROCQUENCOURT, France, Dec. 17 -- The Scilab Consortium announces the release of Scilab 5.2, new version of its free and open source platform for numerical computation, available for download on Scilab Web site.
Scilab 5.2 offers to users innovative and practical functionalities, based on new tools integrated into Scilab: ATOMS to manage external modules and Xcos for modeling and simulation of hybrid dynamic systems. This version is the first stable release of Scilab under Mac OS X.
This release testifies to the efforts undertaken since the launch of Scilab 5 family in terms of performance and new functionalities, including improved ergonomics and a more intuitive graphical interface.
What's New in Scilab 5.2
Xcos is developed simultaneously and together with Scilab, and is included in Scilab distributions. Based on Scicos (INRIA), Xcos provides a new ergonomic and efficient block diagrams editor, with functionalities for modeling mechanical systems and control systems, and is particularly suitable for industrial and academic needs.
Thanks to ATOMS (AutomaTic mOdules Management for Scilab), Scilab's user can download, install and update automatically the external modules he wants via a dedicated interface directly from his Scilab session.
Within the scope of Scilab GUI revision, a new text editor written in Java is integrated into Scilab. Like any other applications running in Scilab, the editor can be docked, allowing the user to arrange, reposition and organize all his opened windows in a sole editing window.
How to get Scilab 5.2
Scilab 5.2 is available for download on Scilab Web site for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X operating systems.
About the Scilab Consortium
Created in 2003 at the initiative of INRIA, the Scilab Consortium has joined Digiteo research network on July 1, 2008. Currently, nineteen organizations unite their efforts within the consortium to make Scilab software, the free reference in numerical computation ensuring the integration of industrial needs and scientific advances. More than 50,000 downloads are done every months on Scilab Web site. For more information, visit www.scilab.org.
