# MATLAB Spoken Here

## MATLAB R2008b is Here!

We’ve just released MATLAB 7.7 (R2008b). There are some new features in here that we think will really improve your workflows and make MATLAB easier to use. On Monday, Ken will give a rundown of the major new features and updates, and then over the next few weeks we’ll dive into the interesting ones on this blog.

If you’re ready to get started, you can download it now. I recommend typing “plot(” at the command line and waiting a few seconds.

What about the integration with Mac OS X Leopard. Do we need X11?

Hi Joao,

MATLAB on the Mac still requires X11. Here are the full system requirements for the Mac.

Wrap code fragments inside <pre> tags, like this:

<pre class="code">
a = magic(3);
sum(a)
</pre>


If you have a "<" character in your code, either follow it with a space or replace it with "&lt;" (including the semicolon).
