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 deteriorate...

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...

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 superhero breed, enjoy A day of a CAS superhero at

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