The first 2008 semi-annual release of MathWorks products is now available, R2008a. Over the next few months, some of my blog articles will highlight new features.



Highlights of Highlights of New Features for MATLAB

Here's a very short list, in no particular order, of some of my favorite new MATLAB features in this release.

  • Configurations for publishing M-files, especially functions
  • Data brushing and data linking, from interactive tools
  • Enhanced object-oriented programming capabilities
  • Define your own cleanup tasks with onCleanup
  • clearvars for clearing variable from memory, with -except allows you to specify which variables to keep.
  • Create a 2-D table for a user interface: uitable
