This is really, really strange. I can't explain what happened.

I just run #5 now again on fresh kernel, with M 9.01 and now it gives
a result !

I really do not know why and how this has happened. You saw the output
and that it did not evaluate before.

This means M has 10/10 score now (but I do not do penalties for
non-elementary anti-derivatives and for long computation time, so
Albert's more advanced scoring scheme will give different rankings)

In[41]:= Integrate[Cos[x]^2/Sqrt[Cos[x]^4+Cos[x]^2+1],x]

Out[41]= -(2 I Cos[x]^2 EllipticPi[3/2+(I Sqrt[3])/2,I
ArcSinh[Sqrt[-((2 I)/(-3 I+Sqrt[3]))] Tan[x]],(3 I-Sqrt[3])/
(3 I+Sqrt[3])] Sqrt[1-(2 I Tan[x]^2)/(-3 I+Sqrt[3])]
Sqrt[1+(2 I Tan[x]^2)/(3 I+Sqrt[3])])/(Sqrt[-(I/(-3 I+Sqrt[3]))]
Sqrt[15+8 Cos[2 x]+Cos[4 x]])

Just updated page:

Sorry again for this. I wish I know why it did not evaluate before
and thanks for spotting this.
