Please review description of wxMaxima

Hi all,

I'm currently in the process of adopting the wxmaxima package and tried to 
improve its description. It would be kind of you if you could review it. Here 
is my first try:

 Description: graphical user interface for the computer algebra system Maxima
  wxMaxima is a graphical user interface for the computer algebra system
  Maxima. It eases the use of Maxima by making most of its commands available
  through a menu system and by providing input dialogs for commands that
  require more than one argument. It also implements its own display engine
  that outputs mathematical symbols directly instead of depicting them with
  ASCII characters.
  wxMaxima also features a browser for Maxima's manual including command index
  and full text searching, 2D and 3D inline plots, simple animations, mixing 
  of text and mathematical calculations to create documents, and the export of
  input and output to TeX.

For completeness, the current description is: 

 Description: a wxWidgets GUI for the computer algebra system maxima
  wxmaxima provides a wxWindows interface for maxima, including a menu
  system, browsable help and formated output. Features as symbolic
  manipulation of polynomials, rational functions, matrices,
  integration and graphics are as easy as point and click.
  GNU maxima is a free and powerful common lisp implementation based
  of the original computer algebra system Macsyma, originally developed
  at MIT in the 1970's.
