New Scilab release
First of all, Scilab 3.0 was released on July 2004. This new Scilab release is a major Scilab release. The main improvements of this new release are:
The Windows port has been completely rewritten: standard Windows look and feel (files association menus), integrated editor, improvement of the performances with optmized compilers.
The new Object Oriented Graphics is now the standard graphics used to make 2-D and 3-D plotting: plots are made of entities with properties and handles. It is now possible to access and modify these properties using a graphics editor.
Matlab to Scilab Conversion Tool: it allows to convert Matlab code to Scilab code. It is based upon a kernel which works on a Scilab tree of the code to be converted. So, it is possible to extend gradually the number of converted Matlab functions: a few hundred functions are currently converted. A Matlab/Scilab function dictionary has also been written.
