Implicit Software Solutions Inc Calc Pro v1.6 Beta released

Implicit Software Solutions Inc Calc Pro version 1.6.1b is available to download here:

If you're a user of the software you may be wondering why the last retail release is way back to version 1.0.1.

iSS is aiming to release a major new version (v2) but internally is adding and testing new features incrementally.

New in this version:

Added Calculator Modes - you can now choose between:
  • Simple (adding machine style - also known as Chain)
  • Algebraic (standard order of operations)
  • Direct Algebraic or DAL (allows using function buttons before entering the number)
  • RPN (Reverse Polish Notation)
  • Expression (enter the entire equation and then evaluate)

Also has 5 Output notations:

  • Normal (standard calculator formatting)
  • Scientific
  • Engineering
  • Fixed
  • Fraction (will convert answer to fractions where possible)

Calculator Tape (like an adding machine)

  • Option to output all calculations to text file (appears in root presently - max size 30k)

Selectable Max size for base conversions (8, 16, 32 & 48 bit)

Selectable RPN Stack Size (for RPN mode - 4, 5, 10 or 50)

Two new skins (selectable in options)

Better Square Screen support - much improved on square devices such as the Palm Treo series

Graphing - can graph one equation. Lots of great features on the graphing screen.

Constants - now includes 16 new constants - accessible from the View menu when in Scientific Mode

LOTS of bug fixes and improvements.

This version will work for 7 days. However if you already have the full version installed it will upgrade the old version and retain its full version status. Please send any bug reports or suggestions to or reply to this thread.
