            Changes between versions 5.3.0-beta-4 and 5.3.0-beta-5 of Scilab
            ===============================================================

Due to an important change from Apple in the Java environment, a new beta

this architecture.


Documentation:
==============

Massive improvement of the documentation system:

* Improved look and feel in the help browser and the web interface.
* Colorisation of the Scilab code.
* In the examples, functions can be clicked to see their help pages.
* Improved maintainability.
* Faster build process (30 to 60 minutes => less than 30 seconds).

In the meantime, a work of categorisation has been started in order to
improve the Scilab documentation. More updates will follow in the upcoming
versions of Scilab.

* Documentation of trigonometry functions moved in a dedicated documentation
  section.

* Documentation of profiling functions moved in a dedicated documentation
  section.

* Documentation of color management in graphics functions moved in a dedicated
  section. See Bug 7048.

* Documentation of Integer representation functions moved in a dedicated
  section. See Bug 8268.

* Documentation of adj2sp was not in the sparse help section. See Bug 8269.

* Documentation of discrete mathematics functions moved in a dedicated section.
  See Bug 8270.

* Bug 8367 fixed - In synopsis function, &apos were displayed rather than '.


Javasci:
========

A new version of the Java => Scilab API called Javasci v2 is now included into
the Scilab distribution.
This version fixes most the issues and limitations of the previous version.
This API is automatically fully tested through unitary tests and code coverage.
Please, note that previous version of Javasci remains available and shipped
into the Scilab distribution.
Advanced documentation and examples will be provided in the stable release of
Scilab 5.3.0.


License:
========

The license of all demos and examples have been changed to the 3-clause BSD
license. The domain public license was not valid in some countries.

See: http://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2010-3378


Known incompatibilities:
========================

* Due to Bug 7364 fix, "Checked" uimenus have to be manually managed, these
  uimenus are no more (un)checked on mouse click. Moreover, they can now have
  a callback.

* The graph of the nyquist function (CACSD module) has been symetrized.

Graphic export:
===============

* Decrease the amount of feedbacks when exporting a graphic.


Graphics:
=========

Thanks to Samuel Gougeon, many improvements on the polarplot function:
* Clipping was missing. See Bug #7007.
* In some common cases, values of radial labels were wrong with respect to the
plotted radial frame or/and were lacking of digits.
* When the plot was centered around an angle far from 45°, the radial labels
were completely clipped.
* Sampling of the angular frame is improved according to the number of drawn
quadrants.
* Improved H&V positionning of angular labels
* Polar frame drawn in grey instead of black for a better data visibility.
* if the basic radius is >= 10^4 or <=10^-4, LaTeX is used to display smart
$..10^p$ exponents instead of the D+/-## console style display.
* Finally, their positioning is still improved in order to avoid their mutual
overlaying for big values.

* Bug 7110 fixed - When inserting a structure in a handle, the handle was
  overwritten.

* Bug 7492 fixed - If its "data_mapping" property was set to "direct", the
  Grayplot object's data seemed to be transposed when displayed.

                   generated a zero divide error.

                   managed by ATOMS. The cause of the issue is the behaviour of
