Hello, All -- I am having a lot of trouble updating to Mathematica 6.0, particularly with geometrica05. Does anyone have any insights or similiar problems? It has always been an annoyance that geometrica does not define its symbols in a separate context (i.e. all of its symbols are in Global`Geometrica05`Geometrica...for no apparent reason). But now, it looks like since the function Projection is in the kernel, it has made it virtually impossible to draw any geometrica objects. Argh! Any advice/input would be greatly appreciated! Meanwhile, how is everyone liking Mathematica 6? Any advice on a less painful update? It looks to me like it's going to take hours (or days) to update all of my packages to support the new package structure, and some functions seem to be just gone! (e.g. AppendRows). Anyone have any great ideas on one-step updating? I've got functions all over the place that call functions like LinearAlgebra`MatrixManipulations`MatrixConditionNumber that are now deprecated (speaking of which, I can use LinearAlgebra`MatrixConditionNumber[m], with no problem, but if I try to use <<LinearAlgebra` it complains about obsolete packages. Can anyone explain that??? I am so confused, and frustrated that the update is so difficult. cheers! Marty
