Scilab 5.3.0 delivers significant performance improvements with a Scilab text editor refactorized, some major ergonomics improvments of Xcos and ATOMS existing tools, new GUI functionalities and the first high performance computing features
ROCQUENCOURT, France, Dec. 16 -- The Scilab Consortium announces the release of Scilab 5.3.0, new version of its free and open source platform for numerical computation, available for download on Scilab's website.
Scilab 5.3.0 provides to users new innovative functionalities such as the first Scilab HPC (high performance computing) features and major ergonomics improvements of Xcos and ATOMS tools. Documentation was also improved in order to best fit users needs.
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 5.3.0
SciNotes, the Scilab text editor’s new name
This new version of the text editor is a complete refactorization of the previous one, improved with new major functionalities especially a code navigator, on-the-fly typing completion, last session restoration.
Xcos, hybrid dynamic systems modeler and simulator
Xcos provides a brand new set of more user-friendly and ergonomics icons. Xcos new version embeds a new Modelica compiler which manages more Modelica’s language specifications.
ATOMS, management tool for Scilab external modules
ATOMS’ GUI ergonomics have been improved with new filtering capabilities and notifications when an installed module is not up-to-date.
Users can now edit and browse its commands’ history from previous Scilab sessions in a brand new GUI, fully integrated in Scilab docking system.
Under Linux and Mac OS X, a new function (parallel_run) allows parallel computations and leverages multicore architectures and their capabilities.
How to get Scilab 5.3.0
Scilab 5.3.0 is available for download on Scilab's website for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X operating systems.
