Huge update! The new graphics system is *finally* here after years of development, and it is a significant improvement in almost all ways. The object-oriented classdef mechanism got a huge boost too, as updating objects occurs "live". And *finally* the bugs with retina displays have been fixed. Github integration is cool. Lots of other nice changes in the toolboxes too, like statistics. As klunky as this language and environment can be, Matlab is still the best programming/analysis tool for fields like Neuroscientific research (Python is very slowly catching up...)

Well us Mac users have finally got clipboard vector graphics support in this release (nevertheless it is years after Windows supported this)!!! But they have made a huge regression in that 2013b is now not compatible with the retina MBP HiDPI mode, the whole UI and fonts are blurry, apparently this is because they stopped using Apple's Java and now bundle their own JRE -- what a mess!!!

The version released today is actually R2012b, not R2012a.

I found that for the average student, a very useful (and free) alternative is SciLab. It's feature rich, it's language is almost identical to MatLab, it's toolboxes are open source as is the program itself and it has a fairly robust community supporting it. I haven't used it professionally, but I would suspect it measures up quite nicely to MatLab in that respect as well, and it has enough similarities that making a transition to MatLab would be quick and painless.
