Here's the link to the new model:

https://www.casio-eu...ator/fx-9860g3/

 

Here's the manual:

fx-9860GIII_9750GIII_7400GIII_Soft_EN.pdf

 

Comparing the manual with the GII version they added CSV file support in the Lists editor. The CSV must be transferred from a computer.

They also added PYTHON as a programming language.

 

Cheers.

I skimmed through several sections in Soft EN.pdf for gIII. Definitely, I would like to see more significant improvements than there are at the moment. As far as I understand, direct data exchange with old fx-7400g/9750g and cfx-series is no longer supported. Also:
1) whether the 2.09 OS bug is fixed: the file size is displayed only as a multiple of 4?
2) the magic limit of 62 KB RAM in classic calculators CASIO does not plan to break :-)
3) they would add a couple of useful functions from TI-83+: the SendOS command to load the operating system from one calculator to another, and the GetCalc command, which allows in TI to exchange data with another calculator in program mode.

I second the request for larger memory in the Gxxx series. With languages like PYTHON and C.Basic it's easy to hit the memory limit.

Maybe they're keeping the extra functions for the next CG models. Time will tell.
