FreeMat is a free environment for rapid engineering and scientific prototyping and data processing. It is similar to commercial systems such as MATLAB from Mathworks, and IDL from Research Systems, but is Open Source. FreeMat includes several novel features such as a codeless interface to external C/C++/FORTRAN code, parallel/distributed algorithm development (via MPI), and plotting and visualization capabilities.

What's New
Version 4.1:

We are pleased to announce the release of FreeMat 4.1. This version provides some significant performance improvements over FreeMat 4.0, as well as a host of bug fixes. Here is a brief list of changes:

  • New Just In Time (JIT) compiler -- the new version uses C++ as a backend for code generation, which means a much more substantial set of FreeMat code can now be JIT compiled. FreeMat uses CLANG-LLVM to provide run time compilation of the generated C++ code.
  • Universal builds will no longer be officially generated for Mac OS X. However, we are working on a build for Mac OS X that can utilize Macports. This should enable PowerPC Mac OS X users to build their own FreeMat from sources.
  • VTK Integration -- FreeMat gets a significant improvement in its ability to perform sophisticated renderings of multidimensional datasets by integrating the Visualization Toolkit (VTK). Simple FreeMat scripts can access nearly all of VTKs functionality.
  • Octave Integration -- FreeMat 4.1 has the initial version of an Octave file parser. This parser will allow you to use your existing Octave scripts from within FreeMat. It is still a work in progress, but FreeMat 4.1 ships with a few Octave functions (like factor).

Wow that's pretty cool. My needs are pretty trivial, but this seems to cover them. My only beef is how ugly the scroll bars are, and also it feels slow. The slowness seems to be in the drawing, since it does begin writing the answer to screen almost immediately but each line has a quarter second noticeable delay.
