Example text

Several changes have been made in this edition. Many of the older tutorials have been retired to make room for the new features. I've also included a new Quick Start. And I've made room for new sections throughout the book covering the new features. Although I've strived to make the book comprehensive, some features have fallen by the wayside and remain in the software only for backward compatibility. The Dynamics utility, for example, has been replaced with the much more agile reactor system. These deprecated features are mentioned but not covered in depth.
