## 2018-02-25, version 4.0.0
!!! BE CAREFUL: BREAKING CHANGES !!!
Breaking changes (see also #682):
- **New expression compiler**
The compiler of the expression parser is replaced with one that doesn't use
`eval` internally. See #1019. This means:
- a slightly improved performance on most browsers.
- less risk of security exploits.
- the code of the new compiler is easier to understand, maintain, and debug.
Breaking change here: When using custom nodes in the expression parser,
the syntax of `_compile` has changed. This is an undocumented feature though.
- **Parsed expressions**
- The class `ConstantNode` is changed such that it just holds a value
instead of holding a stringified value and it's type.
`ConstantNode(valueStr, valueType`) is now `ConstantNode(value)`
Stringification uses `math.format`, which may result in differently
formatted numeric output.
- The constants `true`, `false`, `null`, `undefined`, `NaN`, `Infinity`,
and `uninitialized` are now parsed as ConstantNodes instead of
SymbolNodes in the expression parser. See #833.
- **Implicit multiplication**
- Changed the behavior of implicit multiplication to have higher
precedence than explicit multiplication and division, except in
a number of specific cases. This gives a more natural behavior
for implicit multiplications. For example `24h / 6h` now returns `4`,
whilst `1/2 kg` evaluates to `0.5 kg`. Thanks @ericman314. See: #792.
Detailed documentation: https://github.com/josdejong/mathjs/blob/v4/docs/expressions/syntax.md#implicit-multiplication.
- Immediately invoking a function returned by a function like `partialAdd(2)(3)`
is no longer supported, instead these expressions are evaluated as
an implicit multiplication `partialAdd(2) * (3)`. See #1035.
- **String formatting**
- In function `math.format`, the options `{exponential: {lower: number, upper: number}}`
(where `lower` and `upper` are values) are replaced with `{lowerExp: number, upperExp: number}`
(where `lowerExp` and `upperExp` are exponents). See #676. For example:
```js
math.format(2000, {exponential: {lower: 1e-2, upper: 1e2}})
```
is now:
```js
math.format(2000, {lowerExp: -2, upperExp: 2})
```
- In function `math.format`, the option `notation: 'fixed'` no longer rounds to
zero digits when no precision is specified: it leaves the digits as is.
See #676.
- **String comparison**
Changed the behavior of relational functions (`compare`, `equal`,
`equalScalar`, `larger`, `largerEq`, `smaller`, `smallerEq`, `unequal`)
to compare strings by their numeric value they contain instead of
alphabetically. This also impacts functions `deepEqual`, `sort`, `min`,
`max`, `median`, and `partitionSelect`. Use `compareNatural` if you
need to sort an array with text. See #680.
- **Angle units**
Changed `rad`, `deg`, and `grad` to have short prefixes,
and introduced `radian`, `degree`, and `gradian` and their plurals
having long prefixes. See #749.
- **Null**
- `null` is no longer implicitly casted to a number `0`, so input like
`math.add(2, null)` is no longer supported. See #830, #353.
- Dropped constant `uninitialized`, which was used to initialize
leave new entries undefined when resizing a matrix is removed.
Use `undefined` instead to indicate entries that are not explicitly
set. See #833.
- **New typed-function library**
- The `typed-function` library used to check the input types
of functions is completely rewritten and doesn't use `eval` under
the hood anymore. This means a reduced security risk, and easier
to debug code. The API is the same, but error messages may differ
a bit. Performance is comparable but may differ in specific
use cases and browsers.
Non breaking changes:
- Thanks to the new expression compiler and `typed-function` implementation,
mathjs doesn't use JavaScript's `eval` anymore under the hood.
This allows using mathjs in environments with security restrictions.
See #401.
- Implemented additional methods `isUnary()` and `isBinary()` on
`OperatorNode`. See #1025.
- Improved error messages for statistical functions.
- Upgraded devDependencies.
- Fixed #1014: `derivative` silently dropping additional arguments
from operator nodes with more than two arguments.
## 2018-02-07, version 3.20.2
- Upgraded to `typed-function@0.10.7` (bug-fix release).

## 2018-01-17, version 3.20.1

Thanks @firepick1.
## 2018-01-14, version 3.20.0
- Implement support for 3 or more arguments for operators `+` and `*` in
`derivative`. Thanks @HarrySarson. See #1002.
- Fixed `simplify` evalution of `simplify` of functions with more than two
arguments wrongly: `simplify('f(x, y, z)') evaluated to `f(f(x, y), z)`
instead of `f(x, y, z)`. Thanks @joelhoover.
- Fixed `simplify` throwing an error in some cases when simplifying unknown
functions, for example `simplify('f(4)')`. Thanks @joelhoover.
- Fixed #1013: `simplify` wrongly simplifing some expressions containing unary
minus, like `0 - -x`. Thanks @joelhoover.

in the JavaScript engine by creating a typed function with JavaScript code
in the name. Thanks Masato Kinugawa.

replaced by using unicode characters when creating an object. No known exploit,
but could possibly allow arbitrary code execution. Thanks Masato Kinugawa.

## 2017-08-12, version 3.16.1

## 2016-03-04, version 3.0.0
### breaking changes
- More restricted support for implicit multiplication in the expression
parser: `(...)(...)` is now evaluated as a function invocation,
and `[...][...]` as a matrix subset.
- Matrix multiplication no longer squeezes scalar outputs to a scalar value,
but leaves them as they are: a vector or matrix containing a single value.
See #529.
- Assignments in the expression parser now return the assigned value rather
than the created or updated object (see #533). Example:
```
A = eye(3)
A[1,1] = 2 # this assignment now returns 2 instead of A
```
- Expression parser now supports objects. This involves a refactoring and
extension in expression nodes:
- Implemented new node `ObjectNode`.
- Refactored `AssignmentNode`, `UpdateNode`, and `IndexNode` are refactored
into `AccessorNode`, `AssignmentNode`, and `IndexNode` having a different API.
- Upgraded the used BigNumber library `decimal.js` to v5. Replaced the
trigonometric functions of math.js with those provided in decimal.js v5.
This can give slightly different behavior qua round-off errors.
- Replaced the internal `Complex.js` class with the `complex.js` library
created by @infusion.
- Entries in a matrix (typically numbers, BigNumbers, Units, etc) are now
considered immutable, they are no longer copied when performing operations on
the entries, improving performance.
- Implemented nearly equal comparison for relational functions (`equal`,
`larger`, `smaller`, etc.) when using BigNumbers.
- Changed the casing of the configuration options `matrix` (`Array` or `Matrix`)
and `number` (`number`, `BigNumber`, `Fraction`) such that they now match
the type returned by `math.typeof`. Wrong casing gives a console warning but
will still work.
- Changed the default config value for `epsilon` from `1e-14` to `1e-12`,
see #561.
### non-breaking changes
- Extended function `pow` to return the real root for cubic roots of negative
numbers. See #525, #482, #567.
- Implemented support for JSON objects in the expression parser and the
function `math.format`.
- Function `math.fraction` now supports `BigNumber`, and function
`math.bignumber` now supports `Fraction`.
- Expression parser now allows function and/or variable assignments inside
accessors and conditionals, like `A[x=2]` or `a > 2 ? b="ok" : b="fail"`.
- Command line interface:
- Outputs the variable name of assignments.
- Fixed not rounding BigNumbers to 14 digits like numbers.
- Fixed non-working autocompletion of user defined variables.
- Reorganized and extended docs, added docs on classes and more. Thanks @hgupta9.
- Added new units `acre`, `hectare`, `torr`, `bar`, `mmHg`, `mmH2O`, `cmH2O`,
and added new aliases `acres`, `hectares`, `sqfeet`, `sqyard`, `sqmile`,
`sqmiles`, `mmhg`, `mmh2o`, `cmh2o`. Thanks @hgupta9.
- Fixed a bug in the toString method of an IndexNode.

### breaking changes
- String input is now converted to numbers by default for all functions.
- Adding two strings will no longer concatenate them, but will convert the
strings to numbers and add them.
- Function `index` does no longer accept an array `[start, end, step]`, but
instead accepts an array with arbitrary index values. It also accepts
a `Range` object as input.
- Function `typeof` no longer returns lower case names, but now returns lower
case names for primitives (like `number`, `boolean`, `string`), and
upper-camel-case for non-primitives (like `Array`, `Complex`, `Function`).

a scalar.
- Fixed some missing docs and broken links in the docs.
## 2014-09-04, version 1.0.0

- `math.number` can convert units to numbers (requires a second argument)
- Fixed some precedence issues with the range and conversion operators.
- Fixed an zero-based issue when getting a matrix subset using an index

- Implemented support for `null` in all functions.
- Implemented support for "rawArgs" functions in the expression parser. Raw
functions are invoked with unevaluated parameters (nodes).
- Expressions in the expression parser can now be spread over multiple lines,
like '2 +\n3'.
- Changed default value of the option `wrap` of function `math.import` to false.
- Changed the default value for new entries in a resized matrix when to zero.
To leave new entries uninitialized, use the new constant `math.uninitialized`
as default value.

the transform feature.
- Fixed a bug in `math.import` not applying options when passing a module name.

scalar values, and no longer for ranges resolving into a single value.
## 2014-08-03, version 0.26.0
- A new instance of math.js can no longer be created like `math([options])`,
to prevent side effects from math being a function instead of an object.
Instead, use the function `math.create([options])` to create a new instance.
- Implemented `BigNumber` support for all constants: `pi`, `tau`, `e`, `phi`,
`E`, `LN2`, `LN10`, `LOG2E`, `LOG10E`, `PI`, `SQRT1_2`, and `SQRT2`.
- Implemented `BigNumber` support for functions `gcd`, `xgcd`, and `lcm`.
- Fixed function `gxcd` returning an Array when math.js was configured
as `{matrix: 'matrix'}`.
- Multi-line expressions now return a `ResultSet` instead of an `Array`.
- Implemented transforms (used right now to transform one-based indices to
zero-based for expressions).
- When used inside the expression parser, functions `concat`, `min`, `max`,
and `mean` expect an one-based dimension number.
- Functions `map` and `forEach` invoke the callback with one-based indices
when used from within the expression parser.
- When adding or removing dimensions when resizing a matrix, the dimensions
are added/removed from the inner side (right) instead of outer side (left).
- Improved index out of range errors.
- Fixed function `concat` not accepting a `BigNumber` for parameter `dim`.

to `FunctionNode` for more clarity.
- Fixed broken auto completion in CLI.
- Some minor fixes.
## 2014-07-01, version 0.25.0
- The library now immediately returns a default instance of mathjs, there is
no need to instantiate math.js in a separate step unless one ones to set
configuration options:
// instead of:
var mathjs = require('mathjs'), // load math.js
math = mathjs(); // create an instance
// just do:
var math = require('mathjs');
- Implemented support for implicit multiplication, like `math.eval('2a', {a:3})`
and `math.eval('(2+3)(1-3)')`. This changes behavior of matrix indexes as
well: an expression like `[...][...]` is not evaluated as taking a subset of
the first matrix, but as an implicit multiplication of two matrices.
- Removed utility function `ifElse`. This function is redundant now the
expression parser has a conditional operator `a ? b : c`.
- Fixed a bug with multiplying a number with a temperature,
like `math.eval('10 * celsius')`.
- Fixed a bug with symbols having value `undefined` not being evaluated.
## 2014-06-20, version 0.24.1

evaluating.
- Fixed imported, wrapped functions not accepting `null` and `undefined` as
function arguments.
## 2014-06-10, version 0.23.0
- Renamed some functions (everything now has a logical, camel case name):
- Renamed functions `edivide`, `emultiply`, and `epow` to `dotDivide`,
`dotMultiply`, and `dotPow` respectively.
- Renamed functions `smallereq` and `largereq` to `smallerEq` and `largerEq`.
- Renamed function `unary` to `unaryMinus` and added support for strings.
- `end` is now a reserved keyword which cannot be used as function or symbol
name in the expression parser, and is not allowed in the scope against which
an expression is evaluated.
- Implemented function `unaryPlus` and unary plus operator.
- Implemented function `deepEqual` for matrix comparisons.
- Added constant `phi`, the golden ratio (`phi = 1.618...`).

This functionality can be restored by pre- or postprocessing every evaluation,
something like:
function evalWithAns (expr, scope) {
var ans = math.eval(expr, scope);
if (scope) {
scope.ans = ans;
}
return ans;
}

- Functions `ones` and `zeros` now return an empty matrix instead of a
number 1 or 0 when no arguments are provided.
- Implemented functions `min` and `max` for `Range` and `Index`.
- Resizing matrices now leaves new elements undefined by default instead of
filling them with zeros. Function `resize` now has an extra optional
parameter `defaultValue`.

- Some fixes and performance improvements in the `resize` and `subset`
functions.
- Function `size` now adheres to the option `matrix.defaultType` for scalar
input.
- Minor bug fixes.
## 2013-10-26, version 0.15.0

- node.js: `var math = require('mathjs')();`
- browser: `var math = mathjs();`
- Implemented support for multiplying vectors with matrices.
- Improved number formatting:
- Function `format` now support various options: precision, different
notations (`fixed`, `scientific`, `auto`), and more.
- Numbers are no longer rounded to 5 digits by default when formatted.
- Implemented a function `format` for `Matrix`, `Complex`, `Unit`, `Range`,
and `Selector` to format using options.
- Function `format` does only stringify values now, and has a new parameter
`precision` to round to a specific number of digits.
- Removed option `math.options.precision`,
use `math.format(value [, precision])` instead.
- Fixed formatting numbers as scientific notation in some cases returning
a zero digit left from the decimal point. (like "0.33333e8" rather than
"3.3333e7"). Thanks @husayt.
- Implemented a function `print` to interpolate values in a template string,
this functionality was moved from the function `format`.
- Implemented statistics function `mean`. Thanks Guillermo Indalecio Fernandez
(@guillermobox).
- Extended and changed `max` and `min` for multi dimensional matrices: they now
return the maximum and minimum of the flattened array. An optional second
argument `dim` allows to calculate the `max` or `min` for specified dimension.
- Renamed option `math.options.matrix.default` to
`math.options.matrix.defaultType`.
- Removed support for comparing complex numbers in functions `smaller`,
`smallereq`, `larger`, `largereq`. Complex numbers cannot be ordered.
## 2013-10-08, version 0.14.0
- Introduced an option `math.options.matrix.default` which can have values
`matrix` (default) or `array`. This option is used by the functions `eye`,
`ones`, `range`, and `zeros`, to determine the type of matrix output.
- Getting a subset of a matrix will automatically squeeze the resulting subset,
setting a subset of a matrix will automatically unsqueeze the given subset.
- Removed concatenation of nested arrays in the expression parser.
You can now input nested arrays like in JavaScript. Matrices can be
concatenated using the function `concat`.
- The matrix syntax `[...]` in the expression parser now creates 1 dimensional
matrices by default. `math.eval('[1,2,3,4]')` returns a matrix with
size `[4]`, `math.eval('[1,2;3,4]')` returns a matrix with size `[2,2]`.
- Documentation is restructured and extended.
- Fixed non working operator `mod` (modulus operator).
## 2013-09-03, version 0.13.0
- Implemented support for booleans in all relevant functions.
- Implemented functions `map` and `forEach`. Thanks Sebastien Piquemal (@sebpic).
- All construction functions can be used to convert the type of variables,
also element-wise for all elements in an Array or Matrix.
- Changed matrix indexes of the expression parser to one-based with the
upper-bound included, similar to most math applications. Note that on a
JavaScript level, math.js uses zero-based indexes with excluded upper-bound.
- Removed support for scalars in the function `subset`, it now only supports
Array, Matrix, and String.
- Removed the functions `get` and `set` from a selector, they are a duplicate
of the function `subset`.
- Replaced functions `get` and `set` of `Matrix` with a single function
`subset`.
- Some moving around with code and namespaces:
- Renamed namespace `math.expr` to `math.expression` (contains Scope, Parser,
node objects).
- Renamed namespace `math.docs` to `math.expression.docs`.
- Moved `math.expr.Selector` to `math.chaining.Selector`.
- Fixed some edge cases in functions `lcm` and `xgcd`.
## 2013-08-22, version 0.12.1

`pickRandom(array)`. Thanks Sebastien Piquemal (@sebpic).
- Implemented function `distribution(name)`, generating a distribution object
with functions `random`, `randomInt`, `pickRandom` for different
distributions. Currently supporting `uniform` and `normal`.
- Changed the behavior of `range` to exclude the upper bound, so `range(1, 4)`
now returns `[1, 2, 3]` instead of `[1, 2, 3, 4]`.
- Changed the syntax of `range`, which is now `range(start, end [, step])`
instead of `range(start, [step, ] end)`.
- Changed the behavior of `ones` and `zeros` to geometric dimensions, for
example `ones(3)` returns a vector with length 3, filled with ones, and
`ones(3,3)` returns a 2D array with size [3, 3].
- Changed the return type of `ones` and `zeros`: they now return an Array when
arguments are Numbers or an Array, and returns a Matrix when the argument
is a Matrix.
- Change matrix index notation in parser from round brackets to square brackets,
for example `A[0, 0:3]`.
- Removed the feature introduced in v0.10.0 to automatically convert a complex
value with an imaginary part equal to zero to a number.
- Fixed zeros being formatted as null. Thanks @TimKraft.
## 2013-07-23, version 0.11.1

## 2013-07-08, version 0.10.0
- For complex calculations, all functions now automatically replace results
having an imaginary part of zero with a Number. (`2i * 2i` now returns a
Number `-4` instead of a Complex `-4 + 0i`).
- Implemented support for injecting custom node handlers in the parser. Can be
used for example to implement a node handler for plotting a graph.
- Implemented end user documentation and a new `help` function.
- Functions `size` and `squeeze` now return a Matrix instead of an Array as
output on Matrix input.
- Added a constant tau (2 * pi). Thanks Zak Zibrat (@palimpsests).

number with multiple decimal separators like `2.3.4`.
- Fixed a bug in Workspace.insertAfter.
- Fixed: math.js now works on IE 6-8 too.
## 2013-04-20, version 0.7.0
- Implemented method `math.eval`, which uses a readonly parser to evaluate
expressions.
- Implemented method `xgcd` (extended eucledian algorithm). Thanks Bart Kiers
(@bkiers).
- Improved math.format, which now rounds values to a maximum number of digits
instead of decimals (default is 5 digits, for example `math.format(math.pi)`
returns `3.1416`).
- Added examples.
- Changed methods square and cube to evaluate matrices element wise (consistent
with all other methods).
- Changed second parameter of method import to an object with options.
- Fixed method math.typeof on IE.
- Minor bug fixes and improvements.
## 2013-04-13, version 0.6.0
- Implemented chained operations via method math.select(). For example
`math.select(3).add(4).subtract(2).done()` will return `5`.
- Implemented methods gcd and lcm.
- Implemented method `Unit.in(unit)`, which creates a clone of the unit with a
fixed representation. For example `math.unit('5.08 cm').in('inch')` will
return a unit which string representation always is in inch, thus `2 inch`.
`Unit.in(unit)` is the same as method `math.in(x, unit)`.
- Implemented `Unit.toNumber(unit)`, which returns the value of the unit when
represented with given unit. For example
`math.unit('5.08 cm').toNumber('inch')` returns the number `2`, as the
representation of the unit in inches has 2 as value.
- Improved: method `math.in(x, unit)` now supports a string as second parameter,
for example `math.in(math.unit('5.08 cm'), 'inch')`.
- Split the end user documentation of the parser functions from the source
files.
- Removed function help and the built-in documentation from the core library.
- Fixed constant i being defined as -1i instead of 1i.
- Minor bug fixes.
## 2013-04-06, version 0.5.0
- Implemented data types Matrix and Range.
- Implemented matrix methods clone, concat, det, diag, eye, inv, ones, size,
squeeze, transpose, zeros.
- Implemented range operator `:`, and transpose operator `'` in parser.
- Changed: created construction methods for easy object creation for all data
types and for the parser. For example, a complex value is now created
with `math.complex(2, 3)` instead of `new math.Complex(2, 3)`, and a parser
is now created with `math.parser()` instead of `new math.parser.Parser()`.
- Changed: moved all data types under the namespace math.type, and moved the
Parser, Workspace, etc. under the namespace math.expr.
- Changed: changed operator precedence of the power operator:
- it is now right associative instead of left associative like most scripting
languages. So `2^3^4` is now calculated as `2^(3^4)`.
- it has now higher precedence than unary minus most languages, thus `-3^2` is
now calculated as `-(3^2)`.
- Changed: renamed the parsers method 'put' into 'set'.
- Fixed: method 'in' did not check for units to have the same base.
## 2013-03-16, version 0.4.0
