* Bug fixes, especially those related to compatibility issues.
+
==== Large New Features ====
* Work through the open bug reports for which patches have been submitted. Review/apply/reject and close as many of these reports as possible.
+
* Compatible arguments block ([https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=detailitem&item_id=59405 some work has been done]; need to execute actions when functions are called)
* Refactor/rewrite code for handling load path.
+
* Compatible local functions
* Refactor/rewrite exist and which functions.
+
* Compatible string class
* Create a low-level interface to HDF5 functions.
+
** Define class itself ([[https://github.com/apjanke/octave-tablicious/inst initial implementation]?)
* Support Matlab's HDF5-based MAT file format using the proposed low-level interface to HDF5 functions.
+
** Construct strings objects from double quoted strings (painful transition).
** Allow all types of function handles to be saved and loaded.
+
* Compatible table class ([https://github.com/apjanke/octave-tablicious initial implementation]?)
** Allow [[classdef]] objects to be saved and loaded.
+
* Create a low-level interface to HDF5 functions
* Replace the [[GUI terminal widget|terminal widget in the GUI]].
