Yes Maple 12 does have a quite sophisticated tensor package and can do
calculations of the tensor calculus needed for GR. In fact there is an
example worksheet on the Maplesoft website that you can have a look at as an
html file that will give you some idea of its capabilities.

However discussion of this should perhaps not be extended on this forum as
Maple as someone else has pointed out is not Open Source - however it will
likely suit your needs rather well.
