Release Notes: This release contains many infrastructure improvements, including a Windows command line interface, better support for external interfaces, and many smaller changes. Functionality enhancements include better plotting, more sophisticated numerical integration, an improved tensor package, and a new differential equations package. Many bugs found in 5.9.0 have been fixed, but bug fixing will not be the highest priority until after the 5.9.2 release.
Release Notes: This is the first of a series of development releases which will culminate in Maxima 6.0, the first truly stable release of the new Maxima project. This release has known bugs, but should be stable enough for use by a wide audience.
