FEDORA-2016-4ba55b8836 created by davidcl 4 years ago for Fedora 24

Welcome to Scilab 6.0.0 beta-2

This file details the changes between Scilab 6.0.0-beta-2, this release, and the previous release 5.5.2. For changelogs with earlier release, please see Scilab 5.5.2.

This file is intended for the specific needs of advanced users, and describes: - New and modified features, in each module, - Changes in functions (removed/added/modified), - Changes in the language, - Bug fixes.

This changelog is most likely incomplete, as an enormous amount of code has changed between 5.5.2 and 6. Please report any thing we could have missed, on the mailing lists or on the bug tracker, and we will correct it before the final Scilab 6.0.0 release.

Main new features

For high-level description of the main new features of this release, please consult the embedded help. It is also available as the "What's new" page of the help, by simply typing help in Scilab console.

In summary, the main new features are: * New language parser and interpreter, ensuring: - Support for bigger data sets: dynamic memory usage. No need for stacksize anymore. - Xcos also uses the new re-written Scilab engine. * New code productivity features: full-featured debugger, profiler / coverage tool, and "lint"-like commands. * Newsfeed, providing a continuous feed of news, tips, and general communication from the community and from Scilab Enterprises. * Licensing change: Scilab is now released under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) v2.0 (but continues to be available under the terms of the CeCILL v2.1).


  • Under Windows, MKL packages are now included in Scilab installer and are not more downloaded anymore while installing Scilab.

  • while ... else ... end control instruction is no more supported.
  • Transposed matrix can now use the extraction operator directly A'(1, 2)
  • Function without output argument cannot be call in assignation expression ``` function foo() //... endfunction

    val = foo() //return error ```

Feature changes and additions

  • Addition or subtraction with an empty matrix now return an empty matrix.
  • scatter/scatter3 plot with different mark colors is now available.
  • parulacolormap is now available.
  • name2rgb can now handle a single string and a matrix of strings.
  • isoview, isoview on, isoview off, isoview(idGraphics, "on"|"off") are now supported

  • A call stack limit has been introduced. Default maximum depth is setup to 1000 and can be changed by new function recursionlimit or by preferences interface.
  • The floating point exception mode (ieee) is now set to 2 by default: floating point exceptions now produce Inf or Nan, and do not cause any error. The previous behavior can be recalled by simply calling: ieee(0)
  • The graphics entity "Datatip" has its property z_component = 'on|off' changed to display_components = 'xyz', now it is possible to choose which components to display and the order. Loading old *.scg files containing datatips with "z_component" property may not display the z component.

Data Structures

  • cells and structs are now native types, hence improving performances.

  • insertion and extraction must be done via () or {}.
  • .dims and .entries fields have been removed, please use size and () instead.
  • struct
  • .dims field has been removed, please use size instead.
  • hypermatrix:
  • hypermatrices are natively managed (without mlist overloading).
  • typeof function now returns real type like constant, string, ... instead of hypermat
  • type function returns real type like 1, 10, ... instead of 17 (mlist).
  • .dims and .entries fields have been removed, please use size and () instead.


  • Major rewrite of the data structures, huge models should load and save faster. The memory usage on diagram edition is also slightly reduced.
  • Implicit fixed-size step ODE solver added: Crank-Nicolson 2(3). Added to the CVode package, it also benefits from the CVode rootfinding feature.

API modification

A new set of C APIs to write C or C++ extensions (toolboxes) to Scilab. It allows defining native functions (commonly called "gateways"), getting input parameters for such functions, setting return parameters, accessing local variables, using common helper functions for accessing environment information (such as warning level), generate errors... It also includes ways to overload existing Scilab functions to support additional parameter types (see help scilab_overload). Finally, you can call back Scilab functions (macros and built-in functions) from your gateway (see help scilab_call).

User-defined functions written in C or C++ (gateways) must now use a void* pvApiCtx name as a second parameter instead of any unsigned long l. This is now required for some macros, such as Rhs, to work.

For example: use int sci_Levkov(char *fname, void* pvApiCtx) instead of int sci_Levkov(char *fname) or int sci_Levkov(char *fname, unsigned long l).

Obsolete functions or features

  • maxfiles is now obsolete.
  • isoview(xmin,xmax,ymin,ymax) is deprecated. Please use isoview("on"), replot(..) instead.
