Upgrading from:


New functions Animate and ListAnimate have been added to the built-in Mathematica kernel.
SpinShow is replaced by interactive rotation of three-dimensional graphics.

Animate and ListAnimate provide a self-contained interface for viewing animations:

Version 5.2 << Graphics`Animation`;
Animate[Plot[Sin[a x], {x, 0, 2 Pi}], {a, 1, 2, 0.1}]

Three-dimensional graphics can now be interactively rotated by clicking and dragging:

Version 5.2 SpinShow[Plot3D[Sin[x y], {x, 0, 2}, {y, 0, 2}]]

MovieContourPlot, MovieDensityPlot, MovieParametricPlot, MoviePlot, ScaledListPlot, MoviePlot3D, and ShowAnimation were available in previous versions of Mathematica and are now available on the web at library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/6810.
