Items tagged with release

As the year draws to a close, we start looking forward to a new year and a new release of Maple. With every new release comes many new features and updates to explore.

We are looking for several new beta testers with a good working knowledge of Maple; We need your input, your ideas, and your experience with our products to help us improve the software and get it ready for general release.

There are many benefits to becoming a beta tester:

  • You’ll get to use the new software before anyone else does.
  • You’ll help us make our software better in ways that work for you.
  • Your suggestions could determine the future direction of the software.
  • You’ll get feedback right from the development team.

If you are interested in becoming a beta tester for the next version of Maple, please email: beta (at) for more information.

Under what is new in Maple 2015, it gives lists of commands that has been updated. For example


So suppose one wants to find what changed in the "add" command, how would they find this out? Clicking on the add command shows no indication of what was changed or what options added or modified. For example, with Mathematica, clicking on command, shows the changes in the current releases with different color (light yellow) when clicking on "show changes" (here is an example)

Is  this information available somewhere else? May be using the command line with some option?

Just giving list of commands changed, without any indication of what changed, is not very useful really.



A new release of the Maple T.A. MAA Placement Test Suite  is now available.

The latest release takes advantage of the streamlined interface, accessibility from tablets, and other new features of Maple T.A. 10. It also includes new testing content to determine if your students understand the concepts needed for success in their algebra and precalculus courses; new parallel versions of the calculus concepts readiness test; and improved searching and browsing of testing content.

A major-league pitcher releases a ball at a point 6 feet above the ground and 58 feet from home plate at a speed of 100 mi/hr ,  

If gravity had no effect, the ball would travel along a line and cross home plate 4 feet off the ground. Find the drop D caused by gravity.                                                                                                                                                      


NB: in this problem the angle alpha is the angle between the horizontal and the direction of the released ball. Since the ball is dropping, alpha will be negative.

MapleSim 6.4 includes more powerful tools for creating custom components, performance enhancements, and enhancements to the model generators for Simulink® and FMI. 

We have also made important updates to the MapleSim Control Design Toolbox. This toolbox now offers a more complete set of algorithms for PID control, new commands for computing closed-loop transfer functions, and numerous improvements to existing commands. These enhancements allow engineers to design a greater variety of controllers and controller-observer systems while taking advantage of the greater flexibility and analysis options available through the use of symbolic parameters. 

See What’s New in MapleSim 6.4 and What’s New in the MapleSim Control Design Toolbox for details.



Can you confirm that Maple 17 was announced.  I'm thinking that I saw a notice on this.  If so what is the release date?

Maple T.A. 9 is here!

The new release includes a large selection of useful new features and enhancements, including:

- Content. Maple T.A. 9 includes an easy mechanism to share questions with the community and access questions created by others, through the Maple T.A. Cloud. The Maple T.A. Cloud already contains thousands of questions that you can use and modify.

- Adaptive Testing. Expanding on the adaptive question...

I have modeled something like a rope attached to a fixed frame at both ends. Is there a way to detach one end of the rope from the fixed frame during a simulation? Is there a better way to go about this? I want to be able to release one end of the rope during the simulation.

Any advice or thoughts will help.


I have a HOMEUSE licence including Maple 15, MapleSim 5, with Driveline and Tyre Libraries. Does anyone know when the intergated Maple 16 / MapleSim 6 will be release for upgrade?
