Getting started

Release process

Info icon.svg
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

Tools & techniques

  • 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.
