The MATLAB Desktop now includes a toolstrip that offers quick access to frequently used features as well as a MATLAB apps gallery. The new Simulink Editor features tabbed windows, smart signal routing, and simulation rewind. In addition, Release 2012b includes a redesigned help system with improved browsing, searching, filtering, and content organization.
R2012b Release Highlights
Release 2012b includes major new releases of MATLAB® and Simulink®, two new products and updates to 82 other products.
New MATLAB Desktop
MATLAB® Desktop features a toolstrip that organizes commonly used functionality and a gallery of pre-built MATLAB apps.
To help both new and experienced users navigate the continuously expanding capabilities within MATLAB, MathWorks has updated the MATLAB Desktop with two major enhancements:
Additional new features help users package MATLAB apps to share and display in the gallery, import data from delimited and fixed-width text files via the Import Tool, and correct mistyped functions and variables in the Command Window.
Accelerate model building, add annotations for design reviews, and navigate quickly through your Simulink® model.
The new user interface and features for Simulink mark the beginning of a new era in Model-Based Design, which enables faster, more cost-effective development of dynamic and embedded systems. The Simulink Editor simplifies modeling through capabilities such as:
R2012b also enhances Simulink Projects for managing project files and connecting to source control software, as well as support for running models on target hardware such as Arduino, LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT, BeagleBoard, and PandaBoard.
