Re: Release of Octave Forge

After finishing the octave 2.9.10 builds for Mac OS X this morning I saw your message about the new version of octave-forge.

I wanted to download the single file distribution to save myself the effort to download a large number of these files individually. This does not work on any SF mirror. Worse yet, It claims to be downloading the "Packages for the Nice language".

Something is amiss here...

After looking the pkg mechanism, I think packaging octave-forge no longer makes sense, so I'll drop the port and let users install things themselves. The problem here is that the end user will not know the dependencies, since the Linux package names are often those of the devel packages that Fink uses, don't exist for MacPorts or the HMUG ports system.

BTW: Is there a verbose install mode? I would like to see what is going on if there are install problems.

Dear All,

Now that Octave 2.9.10 has been released, I've taken the new Octave
Forge website live, tagged a release and uploaded all of the packages to
source forge.

This is the first full release of Octave Forge based on the new package
manager and so I imagine there might be a few rough spots. So please
sent reports on any problems you find.
