Hi Maple customers all over the world,

Get the answer in Maple 9.5.2 spending 60+ more time... enjoy
its 1300+ times increased length, now 183 full screens, at the
1024x768 resolution, in standard math I/O mode, as compared
with Maple 9.03.

As we already know well from Herr Richard, Maple Support,
Scientific Computers GmbH:

Maple's quality improves... well... at least it does not

The same aria is sung by Laurent Bernardin, Chief Scientist & VP,
Research who claims:

LB> Being strict about backwards compatibility can be frustrating
LB> for our developers. A common comment I hear, is: "It would
LB> really be easier to make this command work better, if I would
LB> not have to worry about compatibility". This is a good sign.
LB> It means the issue is taken seriously at all levels. It also
LB> means that we are finding ways to move Maple forward and
LB> improve the system without breaking existing user code.

And all this stuff is coordinated fragments of the 'Our Quality
Is Superior' soap opera by Maplesoft...

Maplesoft> "Maplesoft technologies are ideal for students enrolled
Maplesoft> in any math, science or engineering course. Learn how
Maplesoft> you can use Maple to save time, learn more and became a
Maplesoft> dropout, oh jeeeeezzz! we meant improve your grades."

Here is yet another way Maple quality improves... The silly users
shamelessly name this a regression bug - we need here in Maplesoft
a special educational project to grow the Maple super-hero breed,

Just an idea... press and hold the PageDown key to enjoy the
scrolling over the output during about 1 minute (!)

length(int(sin(z)/(1+2*z^3+z^4), z=0..infinity));
