==Why are the developers planning to replace Gnuplot with an OpenGL backend==
 +
 +
The development of Octave is committed to being both compatible with Matlab and adding additional features. Toward those ends, the development community has chosen to introduce a native OpenGL backend that supports Matlab handle graphics and its uicontrols. The introduction of the experimental fltk graphics toolkit is the first product of this effort. As of the 3.6.N series, the fltk toolkit is approximately as advanced as is the Gnuplot toolkit.  It is not yet decided if the fltk toolkit is to become the default backend, or if another OpenGL implementation will replace Gnuplot as the default backend (An QtOpenGL toolkit is also under development).
