Matlab news from WWDC
One of the biggest issues discussed at MacResearch.org is the state of affairs of MathWorks MATLAB on the new intel macs. Luckily, during our time here at WWDC we stumbled upon a MathWorks representative who gave us some exciting news.
Apparently, MathWorks is acutely aware of the effects of the Java/Rosetta/Intel problems people are experiencing (we weren't surprised about that). It sounds like MathWorks will have a new version of Matlab coming out in the near future that will address our concerns. If I heard him right, the MATLAB we'll be using this fall will be native, that's right.
The biggest issue involving creating a native MATLAB for Intel Mac's is the large number of third party toolboxes, libraries, etc that MATLAB supports. The MathWorks representative mentioned that any feedback regarding prioritization of toolbox ports is welcome. Post a comment to this article and tell us what toolboxes you need immediately, and which ones you can wait And we will compile a list with stats and send the information onto the MathWorks developer relations group.
This is great news, thanks MathWorks!
