Get the short release string for the latest version of MATLAB. Output type is a char vector.
This simply scrapes the string from webdocs pages and may not always be accurate in the days near a new release, as I can't guarantee all the pages are updated simultaneously.
This should be compatible with all versions of MATLAB back to at least R2006 or so.
