=== Octave releases ===
 +
 +
* Only one major release per year.
 +
** Should include new features.
 +
** Developer time is limited, more not doable.
 +
** More frequent minor releases, not 100% perfect, promise to '''try''' to keep API/ABI compatibility.
 +
* Better error than crash on API/ABI changes.
 +
** It seems this problem occurred with '''development''' versions of Octave.
 +
*** '''No mercy for developers:''' they hopefully know what they are doing, have to cope with breaking changes.
 +
*** Normally the API version of oct files is checked, thus it should not have crashed and rather have warned.
 +
*** Contrary with development version, even after breaking changes, the API is only incremented '''once for the release'''.  This might have caused the trouble.
 +
* Octave on MS Windows, Linux, macOS usually has somehow a compiler available (unlike Matlab on MS Windows), thus recompiling the oct files is annoying, but not impossible.

=== GitHub Actions ===

** Not 100% perfect yet, but already in a good shape.

** CodeQL static code analysis

=== QScintilla signal/slot problem ===
 +
 +
* Bug {{bug|60469}}
 +
* On MS Windows only for QScintilla the "safer" signal/slot changes seem to not work.
 +
** Revert it until the problem is identified.
