Wolfram Releases Free Mathematica Player 7
Dec 10, 2008 - Wolfram Research today announced the release of Mathematica
Player 7, a free download that allows anyone anywhere to interact with
dynamic documents and applications using new Mathematica technology.
In the recently released Mathematica 7, Wolfram Research integrated over
500 new functions and 12 major application areas including image processing,
parallel high-performance computing (HPC), new on-demand curated data, and
other computational innovations. Mathematica Player 7 extends those advances
to interactive publishing by letting users deploy dynamic Mathematica
documents that run freely* on any compatible computer.

"Mathematica Player has become the platform of choice for interactive
technical publishing, including being the engine for over 4000
Demonstrations," says Conrad Wolfram, Director of Strategic and
International Development at Wolfram Research. "Player 7 adds access to new
capabilities of Mathematica 7, including applications that tap into weather
and human genome data at runtime or utilize our new industrial-strength
image processing functions."
Authoring with Mathematica and the Publish for Player web service
couldn't be simpler: educators, researchers, and others upload their
Mathematica notebooks or applications to the Publish for Player website and
instantly get back Player-compatible files. That means that people can now
share dynamic content across classrooms and workgroups and publish their
work without any software barriers. Mere documents become robust
applications--virtually freestanding and cross-platform--in seconds.
Interactive publishing with Mathematica means that homework, quizzes,
presentations, books, and research no longer have to be static documents.
Publish for Player makes it easy to include point-and-click results,
animated 3D models, real-time data from the web, and more--all powered by
the built-in Mathematica engine.
The free Mathematica Player 7 software and more information about the
Publish for Player service are available
Over 4000 freely downloadable Player applications, including interactive
content created with Mathematica 7, are available through the highly popular
Wolfram Demonstrations Project.
