Hello Mathworks,
Is there a way to be notified of Matlab Security/Version updates after a release notification?
Currently we (I) get an email when a new release goes official which is great but I would also like to recieve a notification when you have updates to Matlab post the initial release. Is there such an option?

If you look in the upper-right corner of the MATLAB Deskop you should see an icon of a bell. When a new Update for the release you're using is released that bell will light up notifying you of its release.
I believe that certain types of users (license administrators) receive emails notifying them of Update releases being released, but I'm not certain offhand exactly which types of users receive that information.

I never even noticed that bell Steve. Very subtle. Thanks for mentioning it. Does it also show up in the Windows notification panel in the lower right corner of the desktop? I would always just try to manually remember to check, or like this week when someone on Answers mentioned an update. So I got update 2, and I completely missed update 1.

I get a tiny (luxury problem: large screen) window under that bell icon when there is an update. It only shows up once though (per machine) and disappears after the first click. (both on W10 and W8, I noticed this behavior since about a year ago)
I don't know if the notifications also notify you about updates to FEX submission you have added via the add-on manager.

I don't recall ever getting a tiny window under the MATLAB notification bell. Maybe I forgot.
