Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 240023
Newer Octave version available
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:04 EST
Description of problem:
Octave 2.9.10 was released at the end of March.
Can fc6 be updated to the latest?
The reason it hasn't been updated yet is that coinciding with the 2.9.10
release, octave-forge was split in to several smaller packages using a new
octave packaging system. The old octave-forge won't compile with octave 2.9.10,
so I have prepare a set of new octave-forge packages before I can release a
2.9.10 build. This will be quite involved and may temporarily break things, so
I'm waiting until after the impending Fedora 7 release to start on it. After I
get things working in the post F7 development environment, I will probably port
it back to F7 and FC6. However, that will at minimum a few weeks away.
Oh, I didn't realize the extent of the 2.9.10 changes. I'll be happy with 2.9.9
for a while then. Thanks!(In reply to comment #1)
2.9.13 has been built for development branch. After octave-forge has been
successfully updated (may be some time yet), I will consider doing F7 and FC6
