21.05.1:

  • Resolved a segfault on printing that could be triggered on some computers

Note about the Windows installer:

The Windows installer does only include wxMaxima. It is not signed with an expensive EV certificate (as most free software), so maybe you will get a warning from Windows after downloading.
You will still need a Maxima installation (e.g. from https://sourceforge.net/projects/maxima/files/Maxima-Windows/) and have to configure, where Maxima can be found, when you first start this wxMaxima!
An new installer for Maxima, which will include this wxMaxima version will hopefully occur soon.

You can install it with admin and user permissions. If you install without admin permissions, use Uninstall.exe in the wxMaxima directory to uninstall it. If you uninstall it using the Apps&Features menu (as admin) a 'ghost entry' will remain in the list of installed programs.

If you want to do an unattended installation (e.g. if you plan to install wxMaxima on many computers in a school, university or company),
this installer (and uninstaller) understands the command line switch /S (for 'silent install').

To select a installation directory for an unattended installation, use /D=directory, e.g. to install to C:\wxmaxima the command would be:
wxMaxima-21.05.1-win64.exe /S /D=C:\wxmaxima

21.05.0:

  • Long numbers now can be broken into lines
  • On Export long numbers sometimes got lost
  • The height of folded cells now is calculated correctly, again (bug #1532)
  • Printing now can insert pagebreaks within GroupCells (bug #970, #1528,
    #1241, #181, #573,#1082)
  • A Russian translation update by OlesyaGerasimenko
  • A Ukrainian translation update by Yuri Chornoivan
  • Changed the font for the PDF manuals to free Google Noto fonts.
    Now all PDF manuals can be created without missing characters
    (before cyrillic, chinese and greek characters were missing).

  • A Spanish translation update by cyphra
  • Replaced openMP by c++11's built-in thread handling. This should improve
    stability at the cost of making loading files with lots of images slower.
  • Language selection now works on Windows.
  • Resolved a crash when deleting regions.
  • The --ini switch should work again correctly.
  • Fix an issue, where demos didn't re-center screen anymore, when screen
    is full and print was incomplete.
  • Made the time between autosaves configurable.
  • Fixed an issue with reproducible builds.

  • Chinese translation updates by 刘荣.
  • A Russian translation update by OlesyaGerasimenko
  • Many small bugfixes including a crash on loading files with images

[2021-02-06] A Windows installer was added, as requested in bug report #1465.
Note: This installer does only include wxMaxima.
You will still need a Maxima installation (e.g. from https://sourceforge.net/projects/maxima/files/Maxima-Windows/) and have configure, where Maxima can be found, when you first start this wxMaxima!


[2021-02-19] The installer was modified, so that it can be installed without admin permissions. The default installation path will be C:\wxmaxima-21.01.0 - one can create a directory there without admin permissions.
Note: If you install it as normal user, uninstall it using uninstall.exe in the wxMaxima directory. If you uninstall it using the Apps&Features menu (as admin) a 'ghost entry' will remain in the list of installed programs.

Resolved a small privacy issue

If the help browser was the old Internet Explorer 9 and the wxMaxima manual was opened the manual automatically downloaded a HTML5 compatibility layer over the internet.

Debian judges downloading a file without asking the user first to be a privacy issue => created a new release that resolves this problem.
