Yeah currently uifigure in octave creates a normal figure, but with the toolbar and menubar turned off by default to mimic the same function

IIUC, their "classic" figures are implemented using Java. Their new  uifigures are based on "web technologies". (I guess that is HTML5, CSS and Co.)

When opening a plain "classic" figure, Matlab shows the controls and menu bar for plots by default. The new `uifigure` is completely blank by default.

IIUC, the new `uifigure`s are meant for developing GUIs and Apps. The "classic" figures are meant for plotting...

I dont have matlab, but is there any difference between a figure created by figure vs uifigure, except for some defaults of properties?

Both say they return a 'Figure object' but is it the same type ?

IIUC, Matlab's `uilabel` is supposed to be used with their "new-ish" `uifigure` (that is different from their `figure`).
Octave doesn't have `uifigure` graphics objects. (It creates a "classic" `figure` when using that function in Octave 8. I'm not sure whether this is a good idea though.)
For their older `figure`s, the equivalent object would probably be created with an `uicontrol` with the "Style" property set accordingly.

How do we want to deal with graphics objects that are specific to the new `uifigure` for them? Do we want to add them for our "classic" `figure` objects?
