I installed 6.0 last night, and started fooling around with it this 
afternoon when I was supposed to be grading final exams. Everywhere I 
look, I find cool new things to play with. "Manipulate" is fantastic, 
and having what used to be RealTime3D without loading anything will make 
a lot of my colleagues happy, as will the ability to plot a surface over 
restricted domain (a disk, say).

They have done a great job with 6.0.
