I noticed that in the past few years the "b" versions were released almost all in early September but this year it looks like it's being delayed. Please let us know if anyone has an insider's info.
Thanks Babak

The Mathworks employees are very tight lipped about release dates. I've never heard of them giving specific dates in advance.

This release is unusually late. HG2 update is a big deal, I'd say... http://undocumentedmatlab.com/blog/hg2-update

MATLAB R2014b is out.
I'm so disappointed Mathworks does nothing to improve the language speed.
Moreover, they are still stuck with CUDA instead of moving on to OpenCL for the GPU support.
What are they waiting for?
Julia is much faster and gaining traction and its Toolboxes are improving by day.
Very Disappointing.

I have asked here once about fast implementation of `im2col`.
If I had Julia, all I needed to do is write it like C and get C like performance.
I can't do that on MATLAB.
Yes, MATLAB have many built in functions which are pretty fast, but what happens when you do something by yourself?
For instant, think of implementing Non Local Means.
Julia only starts its journey.
They haven't implementated vectorization in their compiled code and already faster than MATLAB.
The gap will only get widen in the future unless this becomes priority for Mathworks.

Fair point about im2col and all the functions in Matlab code. The Mex API is an alternative, although it's definitely not a seamless paradigm. However, I do think that with increasing size/features in the Julia language, the gap will increase at a decreasing pace.

I don't know.
My wish is the M language will become an open standard.
Mathworks will focus on IDE + Tooblox and someone will build really fast JIT Machines fro that language.
At the long run, it must happen.
For now, I'll take a major improvement in the JIT engine by Mathworks.
They must do it.
