Simulink versions

If you are using an old version of Simulink, why? I'm wondering what constraints exist in the engineering workplace that might cause users to want to stick with older versions. For example: "My tool-chain has elements that require nothing newer than R2015b", or "My HiL tool needs exactly 32-bit R2010b", or "I have a huge library of compiled MEX functions than only work with R2007b".

I support some applications and extensions to Simulink and am hesitant to build my stuff on recent versions, unless there is a good reason. I only moved to R2015b as a minimum so I could use buttons on Simulink masks. R2019a has (at last!) a usable table widget for mask UIs, but that seems like a very recent release.

Just looking for some data points out there.
