A warning has been added for 1./x and 1.\x syntax clariﬁcation. A new output argument has been added to regexp function to retrieve subpatterns matches. See SEP # 86.
Console command history is now stored in SCIHOME/history ﬁle under all platforms. In Scilab documentation, 'scilab:needs-examples="no"' tag has been added to specify that the help page does not need example.
New xmlName function added to retrieve the name of a XML element. clc(): New icon in the toolbar to clear the console. See Bug # 12049. test_run no longer takes into account skipped tests in the summary. See Bug # 12117.
New Flowmeter block in the thermohydraulics palette added to measure a thermohydraulics ﬂow. Palette icons and some blocks rendering improved. xcosPalGenerateAllIcons function added as a Xcos
palette utility function. New ODE solver added LSodar automatically switches methods to eﬃciently solve both stiﬀ and nonstiﬀ problems. It includes a rootﬁnding feature. Two new ﬁxed-size step ODE solvers added Dormand-Prince 4(5) and Runge-Kutta 4(5) have been added to the CVode package. They also beneﬁt from the rootﬁnding feature. Implicit ﬁxed-size stop ODE solver added Implicit Runge-Kutta 4(5) also beneﬁts from the CVode rootﬁnding feature. Block parameter errors (types and sizes) reporting improved. Some scopes blink on simulation avoided.
Two new commands added: w For SciNotes:
scinotes modules/core/macros/whos.sci opens a ﬁle. If the ﬁle does not exist, SciNotes proposes to create it. scinotes -indent modules/core/macros/whos.sci
allows to indent automatically a Scilab ﬁle. w For Xcos:
xcos modules/xcos/examples/integral.xcos opens the integral Xcos schema. If the ﬁle does not exist, Xcos proposes to create it.
Search is now possible in the console. Shortcut F3 or CTRL+F enables it. See Bug # 11841. editvar proposes direct save to the CSV format of the
whole variable or the selection. Completion in Scilab is now case insensitive. See Bug # 6320.
Enforce a minimal version of Flexdock (1.2.3). Enforce a minimal version of JLaTeXMath (1.0.2). Enforce a minimal version of Scirenderer (1.1.0). Enforce a minimal version of XMLGraphics (1.4).
variance is now vectorized and allows the syntax variance(x,"*",w). See Bug # 12362.
