Anyone else having stability issues with 2010a? I've crashed it 7 or 8 times in the first 2 days, versus once a week or so with 2009b.

Nothing noticeable yet. But our respective uses may be very different.

Dear Todd!

Please mention, if the crashs are reproducible, related to exhausted memory, appear in Java or Mex code, appear only when using the OpenGL renderer.

What caused the crashs in 2009b?

Kind regards, Jan

Well, it seems ok the last couple of weeks. It must have been a fluke....

Haven't really noticed it any less stable than 2009b. [XP32]

That said, the issues with out of memory & especially the java heap space are there. When memory & java heap space issues happen with heaps (sorry) of memory left it's annoying.

You're wrong. It's NOT Microsoft's fault that Matlab has a pretty poor memory management. Other applications (like your browser for example) do know how to take advantage of all the extra memory - Matlab doesn't. It's possible that Microsoft makes it harder on the programmers to take advantage of this memory, but it is not impossible.
