The latest release of Netlab includes the following algorithms:
As far as I know, there are only two areas where there are backwards compatibility issues between release 3.2 and earlier releases.
Documentation is provided in two forms: brief information is provided via the Matlab help system, while a full on-line reference manual is supplied in HTML, which can be read with any suitable browser (such as Netscape®). Netlab is provided with demonstration programs and data sets to illustrate its use on a variety of problems.
Netlab is implemented as a set of functions written in the Matlab language and requires the Matlab environment to run. Matlab is an extendible technical computing environment offering powerful numeric computation and visualisation tools. Netlab uses only core Matlab functions, so is not dependent on any of the optional toolboxes. Most of Netlab will run in Octave, an open source Matlab clone. The main exception is the Mixture Density Network, although the demo programs don't work very well since gnuplot, the graphing tool used by Octave, is very limited.
