Off to the right of mapleprimes we have Recent Questions/Maplesoft Blog Posts/Recent Posts and Active Conversations.

I propose to have the category Workarounds added. 


There are two instances I can think of that would be beneficial for Maple users that would belong here.  The most recent one and one regarding issues adding the dissipative term to the heat equations

Users of older versions of Maple or even current Maple versions not yet updated would find this quite useful. 


The Maple 2015.2 update is now available for Windows and Linux users. It provides official support for Windows 10, connectivity to the latest MATLAB release, support for MapleSim 2015.2, updates to Physics, and a variety of small improvements throughout the product.  It is available through the Check for Updates system, and is also available from our website on the Maple 2015.2 download page.

The Mac update will be released as soon as we have finished fixing the problems on Mac OS X 10.11. We’re working on it.



I had Maple 2015.1 running. I did Tools->check for update. It said that there is an update available! then I did ok, go and update. Maple downloaded about 60 MB of stuff, asked me to close Maple to finish the update. I close Maple, and it finished the update with no problem.

When I open Maple, I still see it saying 2015.1, so what was the update for?  

It will be nice if Maple tells the users what the update is going to be for. Like saying something to the effect that version XX.XX is available or something. It just said update available.

How can one find what was updated, and why did the version number not get changed? Is there a log file or some command one can use that shows the updates made to current version one is using?

Help->About still says 2015.1, is it possible Maple update just forgot to change the version number? What is the current and latest version number of Maple?  

When I do check for update now, it says no update is available. So I must be running the latest version. But this what what I had before I updated?

    Maple 2015.1, X86 64 WINDOWS, Jun 3 2015, Build ID 1049007

I am on windows 7, 64 bits.



I would like to overwrite a plot that's updated within a loop over time. 

I used animate already, but the problem is that it's  only updated at specific points in time (not regularly distributed) and with animate I can only use frames that are equally divided over the wholre range. To update each time step costs unneeded memory and time. 

I hope that there exists a better solution.

thanks for your help.

I wanted to let everyone know that there is a Maple 2015 update available. Maple 2015.1 provides:

  • Support for high-resolution monitors (e.g. 4K, UHD)
  • Updated translations for Brazilian Portuguese, French, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese
  • Enhancements to the Explore command
  • Improvements to the DataSets package
  • Updates to the Microsoft Excel plug-in
  • Enhancements to unit handling
  • A variety of improvements to the math engine, interface, and documentation

To get this update, you can use Tools>Check for Updates from within Maple, or visit Maple 2015.1 Downloads.

If you are a MapleSim 2015 user, you already have this update, as it was part of the MapleSim 2015 installation.


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.



We’ve just released a free maintenance release to MapleSim 7. This update includes improvements to MapleSim, the MapleSim Battery Library, and the MapleSim Connector for FMI. For details, see the MapleSim 7.01 update page.

From MapleSim, you can get this update from Help>Check for Updates, or download it from the update page. (If Check for Updates doesn't find anything, please try again tomorrow.)


Updates are now available for both Maple 18 and MapleSim 6.4. 

Maple 18.02 contains improvements to many areas, including:

  • Rendering of 2-D plots
  • Help pages and examples
  • Interactive components
  • MATLAB 2014a support
  • Math engine: Laplace transforms, complex floats, simplify
  • Matrix import
  • Context menus
  • Typesetting
  • Memory management
  • OpenMaple API
  • Physics (details in comments)

To get this update, you can use Tools>Check for Updates from within Maple, or visit Maple 18.02 Downloads. (But depending on when you read this, Check for Updates may not have kicked in yet. If it doesn't find anything, wait until tomorrow morning and try again.)

For those users who haven't upgraded to MapleSim 7 yet, MapleSim 6.4.01 includes:

  • Efficiency improvements to the simulation engine, taking advantage of enhancements in Maple 18.02
  • Improvements to C code generation for model export
  • Improved handling of indexed variables when generating Modelica code

In MapleSim, use  Help>Check for Updates or visit MapleSim 6.4.02 Update. Note that MapleSim 6.4.02 is compatible with Maple 18.02.  Upgrade your Maple 18 installation to Maple 18.02 before installing this MapleSim update.


Der Group,


after updating to OS X Yosemite the License data of Maple 18 are invalid. What can I do?




1) Consider the followin Integral:


How can I tell maple to give the results in terms of hyperbolic and harmonic funtions?
The maple returns the answer in term of exponentials with imaginary powers.
Also, I could not use the "simplify" command to turn the answer returned by maple into an answer in terms of what I want! Please see the code below.

2) Is there a way that I can update the maple integration database manaully?


In a subsystem, i defined parameters like this in the "parameters" area :


In the "diagram" area, the parameters are not updated because i see this panel :


Do you know why the parameters are not updated (possibly only on visualization) ? And if yes, how i can do to visualize in this last panel the value of the parameters updated ?

Thanks a lot for your help

We have issued an update to correct a problem a small number of Mac and 64-bit Linux users have experienced when doing certain types of floating point computations on very recent hardware (such as this report on MaplePrimes: When the problem occurs, instead of giving the result, Maple issues a “lost kernel connection” error message and must be restarted.

While this issue does not occur on most computers, we recommend that all Maple 18 customers running on Mac or 64-bit Linux install this update to ensure they do not encounter this problem. This update can be safely applied to any Mac or 64-bit Linux computer. Windows and 32-bit Linux users do not need, and cannot install, this update.

To get this update, you can use Tools>Check for Updates from within Maple, or visit Maple 18.01a Downloads.



I have a worksheet. I edit some variables' value. I then execute the whole worksheet to see how the graphs change. But the graphs generated by display command do not appear. All other calculations update fine. 

To overcome this. I save worksheet with my new variable values. Close the worksheet. Reopen it. Execute it. And now the graphs appear fine.


Yesterday afternoon, we updated MaplePrimes. The purpose of the update was primarily to squash some bugs and improve user experience.

Highlights of the update include:

  • The ordering of replies has been corrected, as described in this post by Carl Love.

  • We fixed a problem whereby some members were unable to attach a file to a question or post.

  • Flagging a comment now works correctly.

  • Broken images that were appearing on some of our older posts have been restored. In addition, some older posts had incorrect dates, and these have been restored.

  • Some embedded links to user profiles or messages were resulting in errors, and have been corrected.

  • After receiving a badge, members will now be notified via a pop-up message.

A number of other small improvements were made as well.

As always, thank you for letting us know when you encounter a problem, and please continue to do so. We take note of everything that you report, and we try our best to prioritize and take care of the issues.



As a means of encoding information, I'm working with nested array objects (I had originally used lists, but they became too large and Maple suggested that I use arrays). The nesting should be at most four deep, but the nested arrays can have varying lengths. In order to work with the arrays, I have a series of procedures that manipulate a given array and update the existing array object to contain the result. The issue that I have is that one of my procedures needs to simultaneously use both the original array and a modified version of the array, but once the modification is performed, the original version no longer exists.

Ultimately, my issue boils down to this: is there a clean (or messy, I'm not picky) way to duplicate an array so that there are two copies of the array in memory? Just writting Array2 := Array1 just creates another pointer to the same array in memory from what I can tell, so that doesn't work. There is a function copy, but it doesn't seem to work on nested arrays. 

For example, running the following does not modify Array2.

Array1 := Array([Array([1, 2]), Array([3, 4])]);
Array2 := Array([Array([1, 2]), Array([5, 6])]);
copy(Array1, Array2);

Indeed, neither does

Array1 := Array([Array([1, 2]), Array([3, 4])]);
Array2 := Array([Array([1, 2]), Array([5, 6])]);
copy(Array1(2), Array2(2));

Unfortunately, the latter case would seem to mean that I can't just write a procedure to recurse through my layers of arrays and copy piecewise either.

Thanks in advance for any help.
