Scilab team is happy to announce the release of the first alpha
version of Scilab 6.0.
Scilab 6.0.0 will be a major new release of Scilab, the open
source platform for numerical computation. This 6.0.0-alpha-1
release, is a preview for
developers, partners and community evaluation.
As an alpha, this release is not yet ready for production usage.
If you are new to Scilab, or if you are simply a user of Scilab,
you should probably continue using the 5.5.2 release, and wait for
a beta version before trying the 6 family.
However, if you have already developed code on Scilab, or if you
are an experienced user, then you should start looking at this
release. Please try the work you have done on earlier releases of
Scilab with this version: checking for compatibility may save you
time later. If you find bugs or incompatibilities, please report
them on our Bug Tracker: this will help get a better product,
faster, which ultimately will be benefit you too.
