The MapleReader has been the source of a bit of confusion on MaplePrimes lately. Hopefully with this post, we can help clear up some of the questions that have come up about it. The MapleReader is, as Scott03 mentioned in his response during a separate thread, an extension of Maple 11 that allows an eBook file format called an 'mbook' to be read. A number of authors are currently in the process of converting their content to an mbook file format, to be distributed independently of Maple. The reason why it was included in Maple 11.01 is to allow our authors access to it and it's updates for authoring purposes.
The Maple V Share Library was a wonderful facility for mathematicians comprising some 140 Maple routines, packages and worksheets written by Maple users and contributed freely to the Maple community. John Maplenut has written a short program which allows the Maple V Share Library for Windows to be accessed directly from all versions of Maple up to and including version 10. You can access the Package from the Maple Application Center or from John Maplenut - Updated Maple V Share Library.
The Maple 10 Quick Reference Card is now available as a downloadable, printable version from the Maplesoft website. UNIX, Macintosh and Windows versions are all available. The quick refernce card is also available with Maple 10 in electronic form and contains a summary of important concepts and commands. To see the Quick Reference Card inside Maple, go to Help>Quick Reference.
As a chemical engineer working for Maplesoft, I thought it would be nice to highlight Maple’s broad capabilities in solving simple and complex problems as related to my specific expertise. Living in the Waterloo Region my whole life has been a privilege. I grew up with an excellent tradition of Santa Claus Parades in the winter, Oktoberfest in the fall, the Greek Food Festival in the summer and the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival in the spring. What a magical place to live! As a young child in elementary school, we would take frequent trips to the local sugarbush and get ‘schooled’ in the art of maple syrup production…the old world way with multiple boilers and big, clumsy mixers. Of course, maple syrup production has come along way since the good ol’ days. You might be surprised to hear that today, many major manufacturing facilities use complicated, multi-stage filtration processes and reverse osmosis equipment to produce maple syrup.
