The Finance package is now available on 64-bit Windows. Leverage the power of 64-bit computing for your financial calculations and analyses.
In Maple 17, 3-D plots in the Standard Worksheet will now appear with a default axis setting of boxed.
If you prefer the previous no axes style, add the following line to the startup code region in your worksheet, or to the Maple initialization file for your platform:
When typing command and function names in 2-D Math, Maple now offers quick completions for items that are unambiguous. When such an item is available, it appears as a yellow tooltip-style popup. Pressing the Tab or Return/Enter key inserts the suggested item.
In Maple 17, creating atomic variables with subscripts is even easier, than in previous releases.
To create an atomic variable with a subscript, simply enter the atomic variable, followed by a double underscore, then enter the subscript.
Search and replace functionality now extends into 2-D Math expressions for simple names.
For example, searching for x will find the x in the first term of the 2-D expression, x2−y+10.
New in Maple 17, you can declare local any variable, including those variable names which Maple has reserved for other uses.

To quickly change code for components, simply right click on any component and choose the appropriate edit action.
You can now upload Maple worksheets that are up to 10MB in size to the MapleCloud.
