Platform Road Map for the MATLAB and Simulink Product Families

MathWorks publishes a platform road map for IT planning purposes for releases of Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, and select Linux distributions. Other Linux distributions may be supported as described in the Linux System Requirements. The road map reflects the current plans of MathWorks and is subject to change without notice.

Supported Platform Changes

MathWorks periodically updates platform support in response to shifts in usage, and is planning the following platform changes:

Platforms being Dropped

  • Windows XP and Windows Vista: R2015a is the last release supporting Windows XP and Windows Vista and their server variants, Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008. Support for Windows Server 2008 R2 will continue. Impacted users are advised to migrate to a newer release of Windows at this time.
  • 32-bit Windows: R2015b will be the last release of the 32-bit version of MATLAB for Windows. MathWorks releases subsequent to R2015b will not be available for the 32-bit Windows operating system. To use releases after R2015b, impacted users are advised to migrate to 64-bit Windows at this time. They can continue to use releases up through R2015b.
  • OS X 10.7 (Lion) and OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion): Support will be dropped as of R2015a; support for newer releases of OS X will continue.
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS: Support dropped as of R2014b; support for newer releases of Ubuntu continues.

Supported Compiler Changes

  • Xcode: The minimum supported version of Xcode will be raised to 5.1 as of R2015a.
