Wolfram Research today announced Mathematica 5.2, the 64-bit multicore release and the latest version of the company’s science and technology software system. Version 5.2 brings 64-bit technology to all supported platforms. Consequently, more than 4.3GB of memory (the 32-bit address limit) can now be addressed, and high-precision or large numbers are processed in 64-bit rather than 32-bit digit chunks for faster computation. Other enhancements in this release include: vector-based performance enhancements, automatic binary installation selection, bundled notebook indexing for desktop search, SSH support for secure remote kernels, vCard and RSS import, new algorithms for symbolic differential equations, and much more. Mathematica 5.2 is priced at US$1880.
