Which MATLAB version for standardized GUI tool ?

7 views (last 30 days)
Dear Matlaber,
I am making one matlab GUI based tool for data handling.
The end goal is any user can use this tool who will have matlab / will not have matlab ( by using.exe file).
Currently I am using Matlab2015a and 2017b.
The question is, In which Matlab Version should I make that tool ? so that when user will use it , version will not make an issue.
Should I use current metnioed version or latest 2020 etc ?

Dear Hike,
if you will create an executive file (*.exe) I guess it doesn't matter, because any user can download Matlab Runtime and can start your tool. Important hint: User should download Matlab Runtime version which is matching with your Matlab version

Which release is the best choice will depend on specifics. As an extreme example: sometimes the performance of Matlab 6.5 (R13) is an order of magnitude better than R2021a, for other functions it is much slower.
Which version makes the most sense also depends on which features you want to use.
I would suggest simply trying your basic workflow (which you can also test outside of the context of a GUI). Then you can test which release has the best performance.
