There is yet another new version of the deskbar applet calculator available. Now you can use basic mathematical functions like sin, sqrt, and abs. ~~You can also enter numbers in hexadecimal, although the answer will always be in base 10~~.

It still doesn’t handle complex numbers, and probably never will. If you do something silly, like `asin(2)`, when you expect a result then you don’t get an error, you get nothing. Lack of precision shows up occasionally, like `sin(pi)` giving 1.22460635382e-16 rather than 0. I’m not sure what I’m going to do about either problem.

Here are some examples of what you can calculate:

cos(2*pi) cos(3)**2 + sin(3)**2 abs(floor(-0.3)) cosh(0) log(2.71828182846) 0x1000 >> 12 round(sqrt(2))

**Update:** Pulled the hexadecimal stuff for now, I’d screwed it up and the obvious fix opens up other problems.
