based on an earlier version of the Wolfram Language.
Mathematica 8 adds a number of new areas for visualization, including statistical, financial, wavelet, and control-related visualizations. These areas all provide a high level of automation for both algorithms and aesthetics. Mathematica 8 also brings a number of improvements to all the existing areas, including textures and filled curves, for a richer graphics language as well as a brand-new interactive graphics editor.
