Scilab is a numerical computation system similiar to Matlab or Simulink. Scilab includes hundreds of mathematical functions, and programs from various languages (such as C or Fortran) can be added interactively. It has sophisticated data structures (including lists, polynomials, rational functions, and linear systems), an interpreter, and a high-level programming language. Scilab has been designed to be an open system where the user can define new data types and operations on these data types by using overloading. A number of toolboxes are available with the system.

Release Notes: This release corrects serious bugs causing the Japanese and Polish localizations to fail and the Mac OS X version to fail under Mac OS X 10.6.8 following Apple's last update. All portability issues with Mac OS X (both 10.5 and 10.6) should be fixed.
Release Notes: A new dockable diagram editor (xcos), a new dockable text editor (xpad), several other changes, and many bugfixes.
Release Notes: New localizations were added for German, Spanish, and others. A new module has been created to highlight the possibility to call the Scilab engine from other languages. See call_scilab. The help and test systems have been improved. A lot of bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: A lot of improvements in the graphics have been made. A huge number of bugs have been fixed. Some new functionality have been added. The documentation is now fully converted to DocBook. Scicos (the Simulink-like part) has improved.
Release Notes: Various bugs have been corrected. Some corrected bugs are related to internationalization, others to Java.
