Was just pondering this idea and posted this in the post topic for discussion. 

Each Maple finished version of Maple may still have certain bugs that will not be updated for that version, so I am suggesting (I think anyone could implement it) that if there is a workaround, one could wrap it up in something I would call a patch package updateable by us users we could update here on mapleprimes.  It would be good for people who haven't upgraded or can't upgrade due to costs etc...

For example, there was recent issue with pdsolve that was fixed quite quickly in the seperate updateable Physics package.  Things could be done similarily that might work with other workarounds using this patch package idea. 

If anyone thinks this is good or even viable idea then lets implement it.  I envisioned it with just this one rule to follow - the name of the patch package would reflect the version we are patching (ie. with(patch12) or with(patch2016) for Maple 12 and Maple 2016 respectively etc...)  We could make these patch packages available in this post or start another.

As I said, I'm just throwing the idea out there.  Thoughts?


Is anyone running the 2016.1a patch on ubuntu 16.04?

A fresh installation starts up and works, but after I install the patch the installation seems broken:

cd /usr/local/maple2016/bin
./maple
/usr/local/maple2016/bin.X86_64_LINUX/mserver: error while loading shared libraries: libicuucmpl.so.56: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
maple: could not start mserver

it looks like my installation does not have libicuucmpl.so.56. I can see these however:
./bin.X86_64_LINUX/libicuucmpl.so.49.1.1
./bin.X86_64_LINUX/libicuucmpl.so
./bin.X86_64_LINUX/libicuucmpl.so.49

running xmaple has maple open, then stay unresponsive.

Here is the upgrade file, i've been trying to use:
md5sum ./Maple2016.1LinuxX64Upgrade.run
7502caaa65cc623d5d2574823eee9343  ./Maple2016.1LinuxX64Upgrade.run


Has anyone else encountered this problem?
thanks

I have posted long time ago a patch for Shadebetween and you have transformed it into a hot fix:

http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/205956-Error-In-Shadebetween

In the last Maple 2015 update, the problem was not fixed.

Just curious: is it fixed in Maple 2016? Because I feel that the Maplesoft team is not "impressed" by such patches.

Edit. This was a comment related to acer's patch for NLPSolve, but it was transformed (I don't know why) into a separate question.

How to patch library maple functions locally if there any method?

Found that in

IntegralTransforms:-Tools:-SimplifyPower

in 195-196

instead of

j := evalf(j[-1][2]-1);
k := evalf(j[1][1]+1)

 

should be

j := evalf(t1[-1][2]-1);
k := evalf(t1[1][1]+1)

How to update maple?

Patch request - Patch work on bugs for Maple ceases when a new version of Maple nears release, possibly months before the actual release.  I think it's safe to say no work will ever be done to patch up older versions.  But how can we, the user, introduce our own fix code into maple?  Because we can't fix the built in code how can we temporarily or permanantly make our own patches?

For example prior to Maple 14 a bug exists in a ' for - in ' loop. ...
