Version 1.1 of Leibniz is now available for download. Leibniz is a shareware text and equation editor for Macintosh and Power Macintosh computers that functions as an easy-to-use drag and drop style interface to Mathematica. Using the power of Mathematica's pattern matching rules, Leibniz offers a next generation interface for doing mathematics: for many calculations users do with the system the software can correctly anticipate the action the user wants to perform. Consequently, doing calculations is as easy as selecting an expression or portion of an expression and hitting enter or clicking and dragging to rearrange expressions in a natural way. Leibniz was designed specifically for use in university level math education, and makes it as easy as possible for beginning users to do sophisticated calculations while at the same time mirroring traditional pencil and paper methods as closely as possible.
With version 1.1, Leibniz now features two and three dimensional plotting and graphics capabilities. In addition, 1.1 offers a number of bug fixes and speed enhancements.
