Yes, but not that recent.

One problem is that the forward slash character is an operator in
Octave, so in some contexts it should be treated as a word break
character for completion, and in other cases it should not.  So doing
this correctly can be tricky, more so than I had the patience for when
I last looked at it.  Would someone like to work on this problem and
contribute a patch?
