Mathematica for Mac OS X is now shipping. This fully native version of Mathematica for the OS X platform offers users significant speed gains and vastly improved stability compared to running Mathematica on earlier Macintosh operating systems. "The Mach 3.0 kernel and Unix-like foundation of Mac OS X allow this version of Mathematica to far surpass older Macintosh versions of Mathematica in speed, scalability, and the ability to handle calculations requiring open-ended amounts of memory," says Theodore Gray, cofounder of Wolfram Research and chief architect of the Mathematica user interface. "Mathematica 4.1 running on Mac OS X has the makings of a remarkable environment for scientific computing. It is a no-compromise combination of speed, stability, capability, and ease." Users of Mathematica 4.1 or higher for Mac Classic should contact Wolfram Research for complimentary or special upgrade rates. Users of Mathematica 4.0 or earlier versions will be subject to the standard upgrade policy.
