TI-84 Plus CE and CE Python 5.7 update

 TI-84 Plus CE and CE Python 5.7 update


Texas Instruments has released software updates, 5.7, for both the TI-84 Plus CE and TI-84 Plus CE Python.


Updates include (not an all-inclusive list):


*  Friendlier treatment of entering negative numbers.  Example:  entering [(-)] 5 [(-)] 7 will return -5*-7 (and 35 as the answer) instead of an error.  In Mathprint mode, a multiplication symbol (*) is added to the input automatically.  


*  Update to the CelSheet app.   I have not used the CelSheet app, yet, one more thing to add to the list of things I need to learn about.


*  For the Python edition, the ti_draw and ti_image modules (custom to Texas Instruments, both covering drawing and images) are added.  You can add the menus of the commands by going in Edit mode, pressing [ y= ] (Fns...), arrow to Modul, press [ trace ] (Add-On) and selecting the ti_draw and/or the ti_image module.   The calculator not only adds the menu commands to the Fns... menu but adds the required from ti_draw/ti_image import * commands.  


Remember that Python files are saved in RAM, but can be achieved.
