Cassiopeia is a scientific word processing and document management system for MacOSX. It combines the advantages of a What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get environment with the typesetting capabilities of LaTeX and provides engineers and scientists of all faculties (technical and non-technical) with a powerful solution for their daily documentation, publication and collaboration needs.

What is new in this release:

  • Fractions automatically show parentheses now when they are moved into a super part (e.g. squared).
  • Conversion of TIFFs, PNGs, JPGs,... to PDF did not work properly on some machines when generating LaTeX for a document. Fixed!
  • The default database was updated (current scheme) to simplify the installation procedure.
  • A new licensing scheme was introduced. License keys issued in the past remain valid.

What is new in version 2.3.8:

  • Conversion of TIFFs, PNGs, JPGs,... to PDF did not work properly on some machines when generating LaTeX for a document. Fixed.

What is new in version 2.3.7:

  • Selected parts in equations and now automatically moved into the first subpart of a newly created scheme part (e.g. root, parenthesis,...).
  • Pasting text directly below a section title caused the pasted text to inherit the section title attributes. Fixed!

What is new in version 2.3.6:

  • Equations can now be boxed by Command-Shift Double-Clicking on an equation to open the inspector and then checking the Boxed control.
  • The function plotter supports draw ranges now
  • Deleting ranges of text containing section titles did not work properly. Fixed!
  • Additional bibliography styles (incl. Nature) were added to the print document panel.
  • The title page of the generated PDF can be customized now by manually editing authors, thanks, organization,...

What is new in version 2.3.5:

  • The function plotter supports draw ranges now
  • Deleting ranges of text containing section titles did not work properly. Fixed!
  • Additional bibliography styles (incl. Nature) were added to the print document panel.
  • The title page of the generated PDF can be customized now by manually editing authors, thanks, organization,...

What is new in version 2.3.3:

  • The set of derivation rules (symbolic algebra) was optimized and extended
  • The document classes Article-polish and Book-polish were added
  • Operators for less than or equal and greater than or equal were added
  • LaTeX code is now generated in an easily accessible directory under your home dir
  • A new case structure part has been added
  • The database framework got significantly optimized especially for multi-user-setups
  • A bug releated to removing section title attributes and deleting ranges of text containing section titles was fixed

What is new in version 2.3.0:

  • The set of derivation rules (symbolic algebra) was optimized and extended
  • The document classes Article-polish and Book-polish were added
  • Operators for less than or equal and greater than or equal were added
  • LaTeX code is now generated in an easily accessible directory under your home dir
  • A new case structure part has been added
  • The database framework got significantly optimized especially for multi-user-setups

What is new in version 2.2.2:

  • The common dot notation for time derivatives is supported now
  • Function arguments can be vectors now
  • A couple of accents have been added to the palette
  • A help system was integrated to get new users started quickly
  • Assigning document categories was simplified
  • On some systems the wrong Symbol font was chosen which led to incorrectly rendered equations. Fixed

What is new in version 2.2:

  • As of this release Cassiopeia is freeware and no longer requires a license key
  • A local reference in one of the frameworks rendered the equation editor key stroke mechanism non-functional. We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused. Fixed!
  • A rendering issue in the equation editor was fixed.
  • A placing issue of generated equations was fixed.
  • The operator set was extended and the equation editor made less sensitive to operand incompatibilities
  • Autodetermining limits for the ordinate in 2G graphs was improved
  • Setting passwords with AccountManager.app did not work - Fixed

What is new in version 2.1.2:

  • In math theory authors might want to note expressions like (ab)c and preserve the parentheses. Earlier releases of Cassiopeia assumed associativity of implicit multiplication and automatically simlified this expression into abc at reload (getting rid of the "superfluous" parentheses). While this makes sense in most cases under certain circumstances it does not. The simplification is now performed only if the user presses the Alt-Key while double-clicking on the equation for duplication. Otherwise the parentheses are preserved.
  • In european countries it is common practise to mark vectors with a vector arrow accent while in many other countries a bold font is used for distinction from scalar identifiers. Cassiopeia supports both methods now. A new environment variable UseArrowForVectors (see Cassiopeia preferences Environment pane) allows to control the behaviour.
  • The quick stroke for entering multichar identifiers was changed from Ctrl-q ... to Ctrl-e ... . Ctrl-q ... can now be used to enter multichar vector identifiers.
  • The sum part produced improper MathML. Fixed!
  • A new bracket part [...] (see palette) has been added. Two vectors in such a part [AB] produce a 4x4 matrix as the resulting identifierClass (Q-Algebra).
  • Mathematical expressions like y = 1 /2 (3 pi ) are now dissolved to a numerical value if Command-Alt-Double-Clicked.

What is new in version 1.4.1:

- A new multichar identifier part has been added. Ctrl-q (multiple characters) (Return) inserts such an atomic identifier, e.g. Rate.
- The equation modification mechanism got significantly improved. Pressing Ctrl-f in an equation replaces the selected parts with a fraction part and puts the previously selected expression into the enumerator. A region within an equation can subsequently be put in parenthesis by selecting the region and then pressing Ctrl-t (.
- The equation editor palette got a few new entries, e.g. Ctrl-p to enter value unit pairs (13.5V, 0.783A)
- A bug in the 2D plot engine was fixed that caused the application to hang after disabling Y auto scale.

What is new in version 1.3.4:

  • Zoom in/out functionality was added to document windows
  • Entering accents is supported now
  • Web links were not correctly translated to LaTeX! Fixed!
  • Under special circumstances links got lost while creating and destroying subsections. Fixed!

Requirements:

LaTeX, FrontBase (can be installed using the essentials package downloadable from http://www.advanced-science.com). A free license key must be obtained from http://www.advanced-science.com. Click on "Get a free license key now!".

Limitations:

The application can be used without a license with minor limitations (limited number of documents). A free light license offers the full feature set perpetually with less restrictions. A pro license obtainable from http://www.advanced-science.com removes all limitations.
