  • View of plotting results inside the worksheet or in a separate window
  • Easy plugin based structure to add different backends
  • GetHotNewStuff integration to upload/download example worksheets
  • Typesetting of mathematical formulas using LaTeX
  • Backend aware syntax highlighting
  • Plugin based assistant dialogs for common tasks (like integrating a function or entering a matrix)
