Can someone explain why Mathematica is going directly to version 7.0?
Version 6.0 was a big improvement, but it was not very polished. I
have some problems using it.
Specially the documentation System and some Java issues. I am
wondering if with this new version,
we will have another big improvement, but we will remain having to
cope with the same kind of problems.
