Ubuntu 11.10 ships gcalctool 6.2.0 .

In previous versions the calculator has five models: Basic, Advance, Financial, Programming and Scientific.

However, in this version there are only four options in the menu - I can't find the "Scientific model". Has it been removed, or is it hiding somewhere?

Thank you, I've found that the scientific botton has been intergrated into the advance model – billzt Oct 15 '11 at 10:09
