Mathematica 5 Announced

According to Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica,

"One of the most significant releases to date, Mathematica 5
offers dramatic speed increases for numerical calculations while
extending symbolic capabilities, providing enhanced optimization
and connectivity, and adding a host of other innovative
features. These improvements take Mathematica to a new level of
capability, with unparalleled speed, scope, and scalability.

I, for one, am looking forward to it's arrival...some time in the next few weeks. At that time, we'll upgrade both the Mathematica kernel and the webMathematica servlets on our server.


They have made some super improvements in 5 ... judging from their specs, some of the speed increases are 5-10 fold, and even higher!
