the summary is a warning that the matlab2014a editor gives. todo: check in which matlab version isequalwithequalnans became deprecated and if possible replace it according to the mathworks suggesion.

Apparently isequaln is not yet present in R2011a (see 2622). It also is not present in R2011b, but it is present in R2012a. I will write a compatibility wrapper that calls isequalwithequalnans, and only add this to the path in case an old matlab is used. Thus we can migrate the code to using isequaln after I add the wrapper.
