MuPAD v2.5.3 had been released. There is currently no ebuild. Simply renaming the previous ebuilds will not suffice, as the package is now distributed in one large tgz or rpm file.

ebuild for new mupad
Here is a ebuild for new patch. They have only provided it in RPM format
ebuild converts to tgz format and then carries on. I got it edit the /bin
scripts since I was installing into /usr and not /usr/local

ebuild for MuPAD 3.1.1 (sci-mathematics/mupad)
Version 3.1.1 is the latest. I was able to register this version and not
2.5.3. This ebuild installs MuPAD to /opt.

ebuild for MuPAD 3.1.1 with SciLab (sci-mathematics/mupad-scilab)
This ebuild installs MuPAD 3.1.1 with SciLab included. Perhaps it would be
better to do this with a USE flag?
I've run into two issues with the mupad-scilab ebuild (though they probably both affect the mupad ebuild as well). First, mupad now requires javaview to be installed in order to plot graphs (cf. http://www.javaview.de/). A new ebuild is needed for this, which mupad should depend on. Second, everytime I run revdep-rebuild, it flags mupad-scilab as needed recompilation.
I've created a javaview ebuild (http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=83708). Feel free to patch the mupad ebuilds to include this as a dependency.
I'm not sure about the revdep-rebuild issue. It may be problem with most ebuilds that install pre-compiled stuff.

Updated ebuild for MuPAD 3.1.1 (sci-mathematics/mupad)
Thanks for the javaview ebuild. I've added an updated ebuild which adds the
javaview dependency. I've also taken the liberty of unifying the two ebuilds
(with and without scilab). The new build takes a mupad-noscilab USE flag to
Reading the comments, i got the impression that only the scilab-version depends
on javaview, but the current unified ebuild depends on javaview even for the
non-scilab version. Is this correct?
(In reply to comment #7)
Scilab integration adds numerics; javaview adds graphics. The ebuild is correct.
MuPAD 3.2.0 is out!
