The latest version of Matlab, R2013a, is available for departments that have bought licenses. The software and license codes can be acquired through a mail to postmaster for those entitled to it. The software can also be found on the install-disc. The C&CZ-managed 64-bit Linux machines will soon have this version installed, an older version (/opt/matlab-R2012b/bin/matlab) is still available temporarily. The C&CZ-managed Windows machines will receive this version too.
