Mathematica 5.2 compatibility
The scripting addition has been linked with latest version of the MathLink library (part of Mathematica 5.2).
new command MathLink peek
The MathLink peek command peeks ahead one expression on a link without consuming it.
AppleScript Studio support
A sample AppleScript Studio based application titled Plot has been added to the examples. This is a simple function plotter that uses the MathLink scripting addition to render function plots with the Mathematica kernel.
Version 1.2 (February 2005) - Changes since 1.1
support for remote Mathematica kernels
The scripting addition can now be used to perform calculations with Mathematica running on a remote machine. A new section on using a remote Mathematica kernel has been added to the manual. There is a new example AppleScript that demonstrates the use of a remote Mathematica kernel.
linked with latest version of MathLink library (part of Mathematica 5.1).
new command MathLink activate
The MathLink activate command activates a MathLink connection, waiting for the program at the other program to respond.
fixed a bug with handling of the timeout attribute of Apple Events.
Version 1.1 (October 2004) - Changes since 1.0
new command MathLink abort
The MathLink abort command can be used to abort a time-consuming calculation.
new command MathLink terminate
The MathLink terminate commands force quits the Mahtematica kernel, even if it is currently busy with computing.
new host name parameter upon link creation
The MathLink create command supports a new parameter with host that lets you specify the network interface to create the link for by specifying the IP number of the desired interface as a string.
Fixed a bug where a Mathematica expression consisting of a list of rules was not correctly mapped to an AppleScript record.
