Wolfram Research today announced , the 64-bit multicore release and the latest version of the science and technology software system. Version 5.2 brings 64-bit technology to all supported platforms-an industry first, allowing more than 4.3GB of memory--the 32-bit address limit--to be addressed, and processing of high-precision or large numbers in 64-bit for faster computation. Mathematica 5.2 also supports automatically threaded numerical linear algebra on all mainstream platforms, enabling linear algebra operations to automatically run in parallel on all available processor cores whether multiple or multicore CPUs. Other improvements include vector-based performance enhancements, automatic binary installation selection, bundled notebook indexing for desktop search, SSH support for secure remote kernels, vCard and RSS import, new algorithms for symbolic differential equations, and more. It is available $1880 with one year of Premier Service.
