Is there a tool/method to determine the versions of Matlab my code is compatible with.

Hi! I sometimes have to distribute Matlab code to my students. I work with a university site license, so I usually have the latest version installed on my system. However, some students prefer working on the problems using their personal computers, where they have some older student version of Matlab installed.
Is there a way to check my code and generate a minimum required version number? If not possible, is it possible to individually find the version numbers of Matlab where a specific feature was introduced?

The release notes have all of the changes mentioned:
web(fullfile(docroot, 'matlab/release-notes.html'))
I do not know of any tool to find release dependencies other than trial and error.

In the documentation for a particular function, is it mentioned anywhere in what release that particular function was released? It's highly impractical to peruse all the release notes backwards till I find a particular implementation.

No it is not. But you can search release notes for it. This should catch most things added in the last few releases.
