You may have not noticed, but the graphic engine has been completely
redesigned in version 6.xx. Graphs are no longer side effects of
plotting functions (these include Show as well); on the contrary,
graphics are now first class objects. In other words, the graph is the
output or result of a plot command. Since the semi-column, as previously
in v5.2, prevents the result of an evaluation to be displayed ending a
plot expression by a semi-column produces no output when evaluated. This
behavior is expected and coherent with the whole behavior of
Mathematica: plots are no longer treated as second class citizen and
plot functions behave in exactly the same way as every other Mathematica
expressions.
Show[Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 3.5}], ListPlot[{1, 4, 9}]]
Show[Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 3.5}], ListPlot[{1, 4, 9}]];
Print[Show[Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 3.5}], ListPlot[{1, 4, 9}]]]
Print[Show[Plot[x^2, {x, 0, 3.5}], ListPlot[{1, 4, 9}]]];
Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2*Pi}]
Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2*Pi}];
Print[Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2*Pi}]]
Print[Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2*Pi}]];
