Scilab DeSktop
Thanks to this new feature, Scilab confirms its usability and its strong user-oriented approach. Scilab desktop is the new concept behind Scilab windows management taking advantage of our docking system (advanced FlexDock features). Out of the box, Scilab is now able to save all windows layouts including the help browser, the variable browser, the command history, SciNotes and Xcos. Through this major improvement, position and size of all windows are saved from a session to another. File browser A file browser component has been developed and fully integrated into Scilab desktop and all other components have been improved to provide the best user experience for Scilab users. Editvar has had important refreshment. It allows plot and subplot, manages almost all Scilab variable types and is much more faster. Scilab desktop provides various predefined layouts: w Simple: The standard Scilab console => Scilab 5.3.3 (and previous versions) defaults.

Variable browser has been improved: w The dimension of the variable is shown by default. w The variable browser table is automatically resized when docked. w A tooltip has been added on the type column to display the name of the type. w A tooltip has been added on the size column to display. the size in bytes (like in previous versions of Scilab). w Refresh is automatical.
See Bug # 9446.

A unique Preferences window has been developed to configure Scilab and its modules. This unique interface can be launched using preferences() function.

GRaphicS
Entire refactoring of Scilab graphic capabilities in order to solve the known issues of graphical cards compatibilities and many Scilab crashes. Based on SciRenderer (rendering library based on JoGL), Scilab graphics have been rewritten to provide new graphic functionalities with: w Better performances, w Better stability, w 2-D zoom using the mouse wheel, w New 3-D zoom capabilities, w Rotation available through the mouse right-click.
SciRenderer is a free and open source library developed by Scilab Enterprises for 2-D and 3-D rendering of scientific data.

w Integrated: The variable browser, the history browser and the file browser are opened by default and combined around Scilab console to provide an ergonomic workspace. => Scilab 5.4.0 defaults

Improved graphic exports: w Off-screen export (Scilab will not open a window to export with driver). w New bitmap formats supported: PNG, JPEG and BMP in the driver function. w New vectorial formats supported: PDF and SVG in the driver function. w Many portability issues fixed. Obsolete value for line_style property: 0 and 1 are equivalent values for SOLID rendering. A warning message will be displayed if the user tries to set this property to 0. Setting this property to 0 will no more be supported in Scilab 5.4.1. datatips tool improved on several aspects: w It is now possible to manage directional arrows as well as square mark markers. w The automatic label placement has been improved to avoid the overlapping with the curve. w It is now possible to have painted box or box free labels. w Markers can now be selected and moved using the arrow keys or deleted with the "Del" key.

GUi
Uicontrols tooltip can now be managed using the new TooltipString property. Figure closure can now be managed by the user (confirmation, ...) through the CloseRequestFcn property. F5 and F6 change the focus of the docked element. Improvement in the refresh of the docked elements. A 'Console' handle has been created and can be obtained by calling get(0): w uimenus now appear as Children of this handle when they are added to the console, w the ShowHiddenHandles property enables the user to make some hidden graphic objects visible. Scilab Console and graphic figure menus are now uimenus. They are hidden by default. To see them in the children list, use set(get(0), "ShowHiddenHandles", "on")

w Bug # 10121 fixed polyline.interp_color_vector where not saved or recoverable by xsave/xload.
Thanks to Samuel Gougeon for the fix.
