List of New / Updated Functions per MATLAB Version

8 views (last 30 days)
Is there a way to generate a list of new (Or updated) functions in MATLAB per release?
I know I can see in documentation per function when it was created but I want a solution for all the functions at once.
I don't mean what's new on per release (Like in Release Notes).
Is there such function or a page which documents that?

For functions added in a release you could search for "Introduced In" followed by the release number and get a close approximation. See for example the search for release R2022a.
For functions updated in a release we don't publish a list. I suppose you could do a file comparison between each of the files in an installation of the previous release and the new release, but likely much of what you'd find would be minor changes like typo fixes or clarification to help text. And that wouldn't help you detect changes to the code of a built-in function that did not require any changes to that built-in function's help text.
What were you hoping to do with such a list? I can think of a couple reasons why you might be interested in that list; I'd like to know what reason you had in mind.

There is no such document.
Consider for example when string() data type was introduced, and over the next few releases all user-facing functions were upgraded to support string objects. The number of functions affected was over 100000. Would it make sense to list them all?
