Octave version 0.81 released

From: John Eaton
Subject: Octave version 0.81 released

Octave version 0.81 is now available for ftp from
in the directory /pub/octave.  Gzipped tar files are available, as are
diffs relative to version 0.80.

Binaries for DECstation and SPARCstation systems are also available.

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

For version 0.81, you must have the GNU C++ compiler (gcc) version
2.5.6 or later to compile Octave.

There are no new features with this release, but the following serious
bugs have been fixed.

  * Fixed bug in Array class that resulted in bogus off-diagonal
    elements when computing eigenvalue and singular value

  * Fixed bug that prevented lsode from working on the SPARCstation,
    at least with some versions of Sun's f77.  This bug was introduced
    in 0.80, when I changed LSODE to allow the user to abort the
    integration from within the RHS function.

  * Fixed bug that prevented global attribute of variables from being
    saved with save(), and another that prevented load() from working
    at all.

  * Octave no longer dumps core if you try to define a function in
    your .octaverc file.

Version 0.81 should also come closer to building out of the box on
Solaris 2.x systems, but it may still be necessary to add -DUSG to
