Mathcad 6.0's enhancements include:
o Over 120 "QuickSheets" for learning and using Mathcad quickly and easily; o Enhanced text formatting with live math embedded in text; o A new visual, interactive programming environment that uses live and extensible math notation; o An easy-to-use calculator-like palette for entering and editing equations; o Innovative animation technology for producing and viewing "movies" of live graphs and data; o Powerful new statistics and data analysis functions; o Lotus Notes connectivity, allowing users at Lotus Notes sites to build and manage databases of standard or project-specific analyses; o "Web-Aware" and unique "hotlink" capabilities that let users embed and follow links between documents on the WWW or in Notes databases. This creates a global "Mathcad Web" of technical information; o The ability to build libraries of functions that can be used by other Mathcad users.
"We've been receiving a very strong reception for Mathcad 6.0 in our core technical professional market. It's also been generating a great deal of interest in the higher education market where we're placing new emphasis," said Charles Digate, President and Chief Executive Officer.
