Octave version 0.76 is now available for ftp from
in the directory /pub/octave.  Compressed and gzipped tar files are
available, as are diffs relative to version 0.75.1.

PLEASE NOTE:  We are only distributing gzipped files because we no
longer have room to distribute both compressed and gzipped files.

Binaries for DECstation, SPARCstation, and i486/Linux systems are

Binaries for other systems will be made available as time permits, or
as others make them available to us.  If you would like help out by
making binaries available for other systems, please contact

Here's a summary of changes for version 0.76:

  * Better run-time error messages.  Many now include line and column

    find error messages that could use improvement, or errors that
    Octave fails to catch, please send a bug report to

  * If gplot (or gsplot) is given a string to plot, and the string
    does not name a file, Octave will pass the string along to gnuplot
    directly.  This allows commands like

      gplot "sin (x)" w l, data w p

    to work (assuming that data is a variable containing a matrix of

  * Long options (--help, --version, etc.) are supported.
