MathWorks just released MATLAB R2014a! (Licensed users can download R2014a here.) Here is a quick look at the new Simulink features I find the most interesting:
In R2014a, the Diagnostic Viewer has been completely re-engineered. This new interface can store the diagnostics from multiple past simulations, and offers filtering capabilities. Also, most warnings that were previously reported at the MATLAB prompt are now all routed to this central location.
Block parameters can now be resolved from a Data Dictionary file instead of the base workspace. This offers a lot of advantages like data grouping, change tracking, comparing and merging. Look at the documentation page What is a Data Dictionary? for more info.
Annotations with rich text, graphics, and hyperlinks
To help you document you model, we added the ability to include rich text, images, hyperlinks and tables to annotations.
Sliders, dials, and spinboxes available as parameter controls in masks
In the last few releases, a lot of functionality has been added to the Mask Editor. Here is an example of the kind of masks you can now create:
Git Source Control Support in Simulink Project
Git Source control is now available in Simulink Project. It allows you to create branches and merge them using the Model Comparison tool from Simulink Report Generator. It also allows you to push and fetch changes from a remote repository like github.
