Several enhancements have been made to Mathematica's symbolic differential equation solver, DSolve, which allow us to handle wider classes of Abel ODEs and hypergeometric-type ODEs. The new algorithms combine the method of equivalence with standard coordinate transformation techniques to solve a variety of problems that occur in applications. Another new feature is that complete integral solutions for important classes of first-order nonlinear partial differential equations can now be found using DSolve. The talk will discuss these developments, and we will provide examples illustrating the new functionality.
