Calerga has announced an update to SysQuake, bringing the scientific software to version 1.1. SysQuake is designed to help users work in Math, Physics, and engineering. The new version brings performance enhancements and other improvements to the software.
Calerga announces today SysQuake 1.1 for Macintosh and Windows computers, a new version of the application which helps understanding mathematics, physics and engineering and enables improving easily the performance of technical systems. SysQuake 1.1 is a free upgrade for licensees of SysQuake 1.0.
SysQuake 1.1 improves even further the interactivity with increased speed and more ways to provide visual clues about the objects which can be manipulated interactively. Several benign bugs have been fixed. The user interface of the Macintosh version has been made more modern, to be in phase with the latest operating system release, Mac OS 9.
SysQuake Viewer 1.0.1, the free application for viewing live interactive graphics, is also replaced with a new version. SysQuake Viewer 1.1 is based on the same code as SysQuake 1.1. It is available for Macintosh and Windows computers, and as a prerelease version for GNU/Linux Intel computers.
SysQuake is a groundbreaking application for understanding and designing complex systems by the use of interactive graphics. Interactivity lets the user manipulate graphics, observe how phenomena are related, and change parameters to improve the design of a technical device. Understanding how initial conditions affect a simulation or how the parameters of a feedback controller determine the behavior of a dynamic system is made much easier than with the static graphics created by existing software.
SysQuake's powerful, yet easy-to-program computer language opens it to any kind of application; SysQuake handles the user interface itself, letting the developer concentrate on the specifics of his or her problem. It is shipped with sample applications in the fields of automatic control, analog and digital filters, model identification, physics, and finance. SysQuake is not only useful for research and development--its ability to help really understand the system beyond the graphics makes it the ideal tool for teaching.
SysQuake Viewer can load "SQ files" (programs for SysQuake) processed by SysQuake Signer. It offers interactive graphics which help tremendously understand what the graphics represent and how they are related together. It can be used as a helper application for World Wide Web browsers such as Netscape Communicator; when a link to an SQ file is clicked in an hypertext document, the SQ file is downloaded and opened automatically in SysQuake Viewer.
