Wolfram Language and Mathematica Updated for the Raspberry Pi
August 1, 2014 — Arnoud Buzing, Director of Quality and Release Management
Today I’m happy to announce an update for Mathematica and the Wolfram Language for the Raspberry Pi that brings those new features to the Raspberry Pi. To get the new version of the Wolfram Language, simply run this command in a terminal on your Raspberry Pi:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wolfram-engine
This new version will also be pre-installed in the next release of NOOBS, the easy setup system for the Raspberry Pi.
If you’ve never used the Wolfram Language on the Raspberry Pi, you should try this new fast introduction for programmers, which is a quick and easy way to learn to program in this language. The introduction covers everything from using the interactive user interface, basic evaluations, and expressions to more advanced topics such as natural language processing and cloud computations. You’ll also find a great introduction to the Wolfram Language in the Raspberry Pi Learning Resources.
This release of the Wolfram Language also includes integration with the newly released Wolfram Cloud, technology that allows you to do sophisticated computations on a remote server, using all of the knowledge from Wolfram|Alpha and the Wolfram Knowledgebase. It lets you define custom computations and deploy them as an Instant API on the cloud. The Wolfram Cloud is available with a free starter account. Paid subscriptions enable additional functionality.
