Not a whole lab, just a small bench !
Mathbench is intended for the development of short scripts such as those daily used when doing research in applied mathematics and physics. Simple widgets and a strong plugin system make it useful and extensible.
Mathbench's purpose is still relevant and could also benefit from the latest improvements of the wxPython toolkit. However, for lack of time, it is not actively developped anymore.
Feel free to contact me if you want to continue the project, I'd be happy to let it evolve in other hands. I might ask a few questions on what you intend to do before giving up all control on it though :)
