The current version (2.9) of DIPimage is compatible with Matlab R2008a and up. This version will not run on older versions of Matlab!
Note that on MacOS the current version of DIPimage is compatible with Matlab R2009bSP1 and up.
Note that Matlab R2015b has a "feature" which results in an error with some DIPimage functions (e.g. read color images). This "feature" has been resolved in version R2016a. In other words: do not use Matlab R2015b with DIPimage!!!
Note that starting this version Windows 32-bits is no longer supported! Older versions with Windows 32-bits support can be found here:

Older and unsupported releases

Throughout time support for older versions of Matlab have been dropped although we try to support at least the last two versions of Matlab. Older releases of DIPimage might support these older versions. These can be found in their respective directories here:
Also other mostly older platforms have been supported in previous releases of DIPimage. These can be found here:
