I am running 2014a on a machine with 192Gb of RAM and 20 cores. I am trying to convolute two vectors, one with 3,060,663 elements, the other with 693. The built-in conv took 0.06 seconds. convnfft filled the memory and then crashed the machine.
One update I would really like to see in this package is the derivative functions, at least for W(z). As pointed out in Zaghloul and Ali, the derivative functions of W(z) (equations 21-23) become numerically unstable near dV/dx = 0 (V=real(W(z)), at the peak of the Voigt function. This can cause problems when trying to compute analytical Jacobians for doing nonlinear fits of the Voigt function to optical spectra.
Since you are already using the Zaghloul and Ali algorithm in this region, it would be helpful to also use their method to output a function, say Faddeeva_dw(z) = dV/dx + i*dL/dx (L=imag(W(z)). The corresponding y derivatives can then be trivially computed.
This is still a great submission, but I have found a bug either in the script or in LabVIEW 2009's XML implementation. If I create an XML file in LV containing only an array, usually I get a block that looks like this:
Hi Oliver, still having problems exporting patches and lines or symbol.
I can use uistack or uistack2 from the file exchange here and get good looking results BUT, if I export PDF using export_fig the patch is always in front of everything else. Maybe you can look into that and fix it! thanks Arnold.

Exports figures nicely to a number of vector & bitmap formats.
