MATLAB update rescheduled for Thursday, April 11

April 8, 2019

The release of MATLAB version R2019a previously scheduled for April 4 is now scheduled for this Thursday, April 11, at noon MDT.  The updates will apply to both the Cheyenne and Casper clusters. After the update the default MATLAB version will remain at R2016b for several weeks to allow users time to update their scripts and workflows.

The update will require a restart of the license server, which is expected to take less than 60 minutes. The license server also manages the Intel and PGI compilers and IDL software. During the license server restart period users will not be able to access new instances of those licenses. Batch jobs and interactive processes that are already running when the update begins are not expected to be affected.
