Here is one thing that I hazard is a new bug. I don't actually have 5.1 so maybe someone can check it for me. The following works fine in 5.0.1. Needs["Graphics`Colors`"] f[x_, y_] := With[{v = Sin[x y]}, Which[v < 0, Gray, v < 0.2, LightCoral, v < 0.4, PaleGreen, v < 0.6, CadetBlue, v < 0.8, GeraniumLake, True, UltramarineViolet ]] Show[Graphics[ {RasterArray[ Table[f[x, y], {x, 0, 5, 5/101}, {y, 0, 5, 5/101}], {{0, 0}, {5, 5}}]}], AspectRatio -> Automatic, Frame -> True, ImageSize -> 400]; If it doesn't work in 5.1, I'm sure there's a good reason.

Time [mailto:timetime at gmail.com] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net New features and better algorithms are great, but does anyone know if they've fixed any bugs in this release? Things like The rotated text bug on Macs where labels on the y-axis of frames are garbled. The instability in large eigenvalue calculations, which sometimes make it impossible to interrupt the kernel and other times cause the kernel to unexpectedly quit. The "feature" where Mathematica uses a non-standard character encoding, so that text in graphics is garbled when imported into some other programs, like Illustrator. I'm excited about cluster analysis, but I can't bring myself to fork over any more money to Stephen Wolfram until simple problems which have existed for years are fixed. -Tim
