The Lattice package to investigate particle accelerator magnet lattices (original post) has been updated to V1.1. This is a significant update, addressing a number of inaccuracies and bugs of V1.0 as well as introducing new elements: Octupole, Fringe effect in dipoles, a MatchedSection allowing to insert a piece of beamline when the details are irrelevant, and a few experimental elements like WireQuad. New functions include the 6th synchrotron-radiation integral I6x, momentum compaction alphap and TaylorMap, which allows to compute the Taylor expansion of  the non-linear map to any degree.

The code and documentation are available in the Application Center.

Moments ago, when I consulted the help pages, there popped up an Update window followed by a download of some 100MB+, and then nothing more seemed to happen. What was that about?, I wonder. Was it automatic updating of the help pages, or what?

We have just released an update to Maple, Maple 2017.1.  It includes improvements to the display on high resolution monitors for the debugger, MapleCloud, and help system table of contents. It also contains a variety of small improvements to the math engine, including in limit, series, Physics, typesetting, and PackageTools. This update is available through Tools>Check for Updates in Maple, and is also available from our website on the Maple 2017.1 download page.


We have just released a small update to MapleSim.  MapleSim 2016.2a is an update to MapleSim 2016.2 that includes improvements in several areas, including corrections to problems related to custom components and importing Modelica libraries. As usual, we recommend that every MapleSim customer install all available updates.  The update is availble through Help>Check for Updates and as a download from our website.  See MapleSim 2016.2a for details.


We have just released an update to Maple.  It includes updates to the Maple Workbook, the video component, the Physics package, and many other small improvements throughout the product. It is available through Tools>Check for Updates in Maple, and is also available from our website on the Maple 2016.2 download page.


I updated the OSX from El Capitan 10.11 to Sierra 10.12.

After then, whenever I try to input Japanese characters, Internal Error notification appears, and it crashes.
As it is not realistic to go back to the old OS, as the time when I did back up was a little before, I wouldn't do so.
Then, I might end up torelating not using Japanese until the next version of maple appears next year.
Are the situations like this ?

I know there might not be any response as this is about inputting Japanese characters.

Best wishes.



It has been years since I last run one of my packages (not mine actually) and consequently maple.  The package was written in Maple V and run on Maple V5.  I have used updtscr to convert the old code and not many messages came out.   The updated code does not run unfortunately.  One of the problems is the following command:

linalg[dotprod](f,map((a,b) -> diff(b,a),vars,h));

Although linalg is deprecated, that does not seem to be the problem.   Suppose h, f (vector) and vars are:

The output is:

How to avoid the conjugate? Is there a simpler way to do that?

Many thanks for your patience and help.




We have just released a new version of the Multivariate Calculus Study Guide.  It provides a new section on Vector Calculus, with over 100 additional worked problems, and makes extensive use of Maple’s Clickable Math tools as well as commands.

Existing study guide customers can get the new content via a free update, available through the Check for Updates system or from our website. See Multivariate Calculus Study Guide 2016 Update for details.

For more information about this guide, including a full table of contents, visit Multivariate Calculus Study Guide.



An update to Maple 2016 is now available. Maple 2016.1 provides:

  • Updated translations for Simplified and Traditional Chinese,  French, Greek, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish
  • Updates to the new Maple Workbook
  • Enhancements to Maple’s context-sensitive menus
  • A variety of improvements to the math engine and interface


To get this update, use Tools>Check for Updates from within Maple, or visit the Maple 2016.1 downloads page.



In addition to the Maple 2015.2 and MapleSim 2015.2 updates for Mac, we have just released updates to both Maple and MapleSim for Windows and Linux.

Maple 2015.2a provides a fix for the sum bug reported here.

MapleSim 2015.a provides a variety of interface improvements, and updates to the MapleSim Battery Library and MapleSim CAD Toolbox.

For Mac users, these improvements are included with the Maple 2015.2/MapleSim 2015.2 updates.

All updates are available through the Check for Updates system, and are also available from our website on the downloads section of our website.


The Maple 2015.2 update is now available for Windows and Linux users. It provides official support for Windows 10, connectivity to the latest MATLAB release, support for MapleSim 2015.2, updates to Physics, and a variety of small improvements throughout the product.  It is available through the Check for Updates system, and is also available from our website on the Maple 2015.2 download page.

The Mac update will be released as soon as we have finished fixing the problems on Mac OS X 10.11. We’re working on it.



I had Maple 2015.1 running. I did Tools->check for update. It said that there is an update available! then I did ok, go and update. Maple downloaded about 60 MB of stuff, asked me to close Maple to finish the update. I close Maple, and it finished the update with no problem.

When I open Maple, I still see it saying 2015.1, so what was the update for?  

It will be nice if Maple tells the users what the update is going to be for. Like saying something to the effect that version XX.XX is available or something. It just said update available.

How can one find what was updated, and why did the version number not get changed? Is there a log file or some command one can use that shows the updates made to current version one is using?

Help->About still says 2015.1, is it possible Maple update just forgot to change the version number? What is the current and latest version number of Maple?  

When I do check for update now, it says no update is available. So I must be running the latest version. But this what what I had before I updated?

    Maple 2015.1, X86 64 WINDOWS, Jun 3 2015, Build ID 1049007

I am on windows 7, 64 bits.



I wanted to let everyone know that there is a Maple 2015 update available. Maple 2015.1 provides:

  • Support for high-resolution monitors (e.g. 4K, UHD)
  • Updated translations for Brazilian Portuguese, French, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese
  • Enhancements to the Explore command
  • Improvements to the DataSets package
  • Updates to the Microsoft Excel plug-in
  • Enhancements to unit handling
  • A variety of improvements to the math engine, interface, and documentation

To get this update, you can use Tools>Check for Updates from within Maple, or visit Maple 2015.1 Downloads.

If you are a MapleSim 2015 user, you already have this update, as it was part of the MapleSim 2015 installation.


Under what is new in Maple 2015, it gives lists of commands that has been updated. For example


So suppose one wants to find what changed in the "add" command, how would they find this out? Clicking on the add command shows no indication of what was changed or what options added or modified. For example, with Mathematica, clicking on command, shows the changes in the current releases with different color (light yellow) when clicking on "show changes" (here is an example)

Is  this information available somewhere else? May be using the command line with some option?

Just giving list of commands changed, without any indication of what changed, is not very useful really.



Yesterday afternoon, we updated MaplePrimes. The purpose of the update was primarily to squash some bugs and improve user experience.

Highlights of the update include:

  • The ordering of replies has been corrected, as described in this post by Carl Love.

  • We fixed a problem whereby some members were unable to attach a file to a question or post.

  • Flagging a comment now works correctly.

  • Broken images that were appearing on some of our older posts have been restored. In addition, some older posts had incorrect dates, and these have been restored.

  • Some embedded links to user profiles or messages were resulting in errors, and have been corrected.

  • After receiving a badge, members will now be notified via a pop-up message.

A number of other small improvements were made as well.

As always, thank you for letting us know when you encounter a problem, and please continue to do so. We take note of everything that you report, and we try our best to prioritize and take care of the issues.
