Great to see Mathematica 12 released and I can't wait to try the new functionality!

What is the timeline and roadmap to get Mathematica 12 to the Pi? – Thanks!

Hopefully soon -- that is to say, in weeks rather than months.

Terrific, thank you!

P.S.: It would be great if you could also look into the dependency libcurl3, which will no longer be available in Debian Buster.

Yes, this and a couple of other dependencies will be ironed out for Buster compatibility.

Database interfacing (at least with some databases) does not work on the Raspberry Pi in Mathematica 11.3. After entering the following commands on the Pi, an error occurs:


conn = OpenSQLConnection[JDBC["SQLite", "/path/to/database.db"]];

The error returned is cryptic:

JDBC::error: org.sqlite.core.NativeDB._open(Ljava/lang/String;I)V

Please see this Stack Exchange answer and the comments on it.

As many microcontrollers are used for passive purposes such as data collection, it is worth allowing them to interface readily with databases.

This example seems to work fine in the 12.0 builds currently under testing.

That's great! Thank you. My girlfriend is an atmospheric chemist and we are working on automated gathering of time-series data on the concentrations of various gasses in the air using the Raspberry Pi + Mathematica.

Dear Ilian, Any news here, maybe anything to test for us? Thanks! Michael

As mentioned at

Mathematica 12 should be available in the coming days.

Currently the release candidate builds are undergoing final QA testing to make sure they work well on the just released Raspberry Pi 4, as well as on Raspbian Buster.
