sgtitle is available in MATLAB R2019b but not in R2018a
suptitle is available in MATLAB R2018a but not in R2019b.
If I'm distributing, how can I check the release to use the compatible function?

You can also use the following to keep it on one line:
version('-release')
ans = '2021a'

v= ver('MATLAB');
if v.Release=="(R2018a)"
%Code
elseif v.Release=="(R2019b)"
%Code
end
