Qalculate backend merged

Yesterday the Qalculate backend for Cantor has been merged into master, which means that it will be included in the upcoming SC 4.8 release. Looking at the activity on the repository, it looks like the Scilab backend has also been merged, making Cantor even more versatile. The Qalculate backend offers interesting features like:

  • customizable functions
  • units
  • arbitrary precision
  • plotting
You are encouraged to refresh your Cantor build and test the new backends. Head over to the project page and get the sources.

    Great work! Very nice to see someone picking up my shambles and actually creating a usable backend out of it – much appreciated!

    I’m looking forward to trying it out with 4.8. Looks like I’ll have a use for it again this semester for my physical chemistry lecture 🙂
