The MathWorks today announced the immediate availability of MATLAB 7 (US$1,900). The major update to its flagship product enhances programmer productivity with new tools that enable rapid, iterative program creation. MATLAB 7 also offers built-in support for integer and single-precision floating-point math, as well as language features for managing and analyzing larger data sets. The MathWorks said 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.
