The GNU Octave 6.1 release process has been started. See the 6.1 Release Checklist for more information.

Project ideas and work in progess[edit]

Tools & techniques[edit]

  • Mercurial -- Version control scheme.
  • MXE -- Cross-compiling to Windows.
  • gdb -- debugger. Useful to obtain stack traces.
  • valgrind -- memory leak detector, profiler etc.
  • ccache -- cache compilation across builds.
  • Editors -- A list of editors supporting Octave syntax highlighting.

Documentation[edit]
