I recently found the OS 2.53 for the TI-84 available for download on the official website. I'm not sure when it was released, by atleast I didn't recognise it til now. Since I couldn't find any list of all the new feautures I thought I'd ask you- mainly about the more obscure feautures. I noticed the new fraction system and so on, but I don't find it that useful to be honest. I haven't learnt about derivates and such yet, but I suppose it should be easier to calculate these kinds of values aswell? And I'm not sure if the new history, or scrolling system is more helpful than it is annoying.
Also, I read that this OS can have a negative effect on my old programs. I noticed that my Snake Game ran quite slow compared to before. Are there any solutions for this?
How will the new OS affect the programming?
Is the new OS even worth having? It seems like an optimization for those who prefer user-friendly calculators, gaining in appearance but losing in performance…
