R2012b, released in September 2012, features major updates to Simulink® and Stateflow®—notably, the new Simulink Editor and Stateflow Editor. These updates represent the biggest user experience upgrade to Simulink and Stateflow since they were introduced in 1990 and 1997, respectively. In this article, Jay Torgerson, senior development team lead, explains some of the thinking behind these updates. We then present an example showing how Simulink R2012b simplifies model navigation, simulation analysis, and model editing.
