Maplesoft™, Waterloo, ON, Canada, has introduced Maple™ 11 mathematical software with a smart document environment that automatically captures technical knowledge in an electronic form that seamlessly integrates calculations, explanatory text and math, graphics, images, and sound. These live documents can be reused or shared across an organization. The smart document environment also includes the ability to use natural math notation in titles, legends, and labels, and annotation capabilities such as sketching, adding text and math, and drawing lines, shapes, and arrows.

The software's enhanced computation engine features new mathematics, user-level multithreaded computations, and a polynomial real root finder. Other features of the computation engine include new specialty packages for graph theory, physics, and differential geometry; multi-core processor support; numeric integration and summation; and vector calculus. Maple 11 also includes improved MATLAB connectivity, an Image Tools package with manipulation and viewing commands, and Excel import and export capabilities integrated with interactive tools.
