MathWorks, Natick, MA, has introduced Release 2012b with updates to MATLAB and Simulink environments for technical computing, and simulation and design, respectively. The new release includes a redesigned help system with improved browsing, searching, filtering, and content organization. The Simulink Editor simplifies modeling through capabilities such as tabbed model windows for improved window management, an Explorer bar for navigating model hierarchy, smart signal routing to determine optimal signal line path, and debugging capabilities that rewind simulations and set conditional breakpoints on signals. Simulink Projects manages project files and connects to source control software. The MATLAB Desktop now features the MATLAB Toolstrip that displays icons for the most frequently used MATLAB features, such as selecting the best plot type for data. An apps gallery presents apps from the MATLAB product family to allow users to perform common tasks without writing code.
