When will Jacket be merged into Parallel Computing Toolbox?

2 views (last 30 days)
I read that MathWorks has acquired the competing Jacket product from Accelereyes:
We were considering using Jacket for the GPU interface instead of Parallel Computing Toolbox since multiple articles indicate that Jacket is faster and supports more MATLAB functions than PCT. But now that Jacket is part of the MathWorks family I would expect its functionality to get merged into PCT.
Does anyone know if this is the case? I don't see anything on the MathWorks site mentioning the acquisition or any timeline for updating PCT with Jacket features.
BTW I am currently using R2012b. Do I perhaps need to move up to R2013a?
Thanks for any info.

Still waiting for an update. I miss Jacket's gfor and interp3 implementations, which remain faster, and with more functionality, in R2012b than they are in R2015b.

One way would be to look at the Parallel computing toolbox release notes since R2012b.
As R2013a, R2013b, R2014a are now out.
The number of functions supported grows every release.

It seems they're now at and are open source.
