I've been using and liking this app for a few weeks now. Good job!
One issue I have encountered though, is when I tried to run my code in matlab 2012b, it crashed it (matlab stopped responding).
It's quite strange: when I run it in debug mode, line by line, it doesn't crash, but if I just let it run (f5), it kills my matlab.
The problem seems to be in the functions that change the text panel background color and the statusbar border color. Maybe it's because I run it in a loop and something Java related is still in process when the next call comes?
Anyway, the bug doesn't exist in 2013b, and I have found ways around it, so kudos to you!

set/get status bar(s) for GUI figures & Matlab desktop
Doesn't work in Matlab 7.14 (R2012a).
The method jFigPanel.getComponent(0).getRootPane doesn't return anything and so the jRootPane variable always remains empty, which results in an "Attempt to reference field of non-structure array" error.
