Wolfram Research has released webMathematica 2.3, supporting 64-bit computing to expand the size and scope of scientific problems that websites can reliably solve. "WebMathematica was already the ideal all-in-one solution for putting interesting science online, but now it's much more," said Tom Wickham-Jones, director of kernel technology for Wolfram Research. "We've added the power of true 64-bit computing so developers can build more dynamic sites and their users can experience the next wave of technical computing right through the Web." The update offers 64-bit enhanced arbitrary-precision numerics, multithreading support for numerical linear Algebra, major vectorization speed improvements, RSS as well as vCard import, and enhanced charts/visualizations (pricing and system requirements were unavailable).
