The contest machinery will be using 6.5, but as Stijn points out, you 
shouldn't let this deter you.  The code distributed in the zip file 
(which will be available when the contest begins tomorrow morning) 
should work fine in previous versions, although I haven't tested it.

Once you have debugged your entry, then you submit it via the web 
interface, and we take it from there.  Technically, you don't need 
MATLAB at all in order to play the contest.  You can type your code 
directly into the web interface and submit it (I wouldn't recommend 
this, since the error messages aren't always useful across the web 
interface).  Good Luck.
