The MathWorks announces the availability of MATLAB® 7. This release of the company's platform enhances programmer productivity with tools that enable rapid, iterative program creation. In addition, MATLAB 7 offers built-in support for integer and single-precision floating-point math, as well as language features for managing and analyzing larger data sets. A large number of optimizations across data types, operations, functions, and hardware result in improved computational performance of end user applications. Also new in the MATLAB family of products is an enhanced MATLAB Compiler that now supports the full MATLAB language, enabling developers to deploy more MATLAB applications for use outside of MATLAB. MATLAB 7 features a redesigned desktop that includes new programming and debugging tools, automated program analysis for code quality, and publishing of code and output directly to HTML and Word.
