Hello, 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.
