Release highlights include:
Among the MATLAB highlights in R2019b is the introduction of Live Editor Tasks, which enables users to interactively explore parameters, preprocess data, and generate MATLAB code that becomes part of the live script. Now, MATLAB users can focus on the task instead of the syntax or complex code, and automatically run generated code to quickly iterate on parameters through visualization.
R2019b highlights of Simulink include the new Simulink Toolstrip, which helps users access and discover capabilities as they are needed. In the Simulink Toolstrip tabs are arranged according to workflow and sorted by frequency of use, saving navigation and search time.
3. Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning
In R2019b, Deep Learning Toolbox builds on the flexible training loops and networks introduced earlier this year. New capabilities enable users to train advanced network architectures using custom training loops, automatic differentiation, shared weights, and custom loss functions. In addition, users can now build generative adversarial networks (GANs), Siamese networks, variational auto-encoders, and attention networks. Deep Learning Toolbox also can now export to ONNX format networks that combine CNN and LSTM layers and networks that include 3D CNN layers.
R2019b also introduces significant capabilities in support of the automotive industry across multiple products, including:
In addition to new features in Robotics System Toolbox, R2019b introduces two new products:
6. Stateflow Training
R2019b offers Stateflow Onramp, an interactive tutorial to help users learn the basics of how to create, edit, and simulate Stateflow models. Like the existing Onramps for MATLAB, Simulink and deep learning, this self-paced learning course includes video tutorials and hands-on exercises with automated assessments and feedback.
R2019b is available immediately worldwide. For information on all new products, enhancements, and bug fixes to the MATLAB and Simulink product families, you can watch the R2019b Highlights video.
