I have pasted what Mike wrote:


Dear Octave Forge maintainers, 

The first 4.0 release candidate has been out for some time now and we 
don't expect any further changes to impact Octave Forge package 
compatibility. At this time we would like to call for Octave Forge 
package maintainers to release updated versions of packages if needed 
that will build and work with the coming Octave release. 

For informational purposes, the current released versions of the 
following packages fail to build properly with the first release 

 * communications 
 * control 
 * dicom 
 * image 
 * odepkg 
 * windows 

Some of these have been fixed in the package repository but not yet 
released, others may still need patches. 

The imminent Octave 4.0.0 release will be the first to supply an 
official binary distribution of Octave for Windows operating systems. 
This distribution will include a set of Octave Forge packages that may 
be installed at the user's option. This is why we would like to have 
compatible packages ready to incorporate into the next release candidate 
for further testing. 

Please consider releasing fixed versions of the listed packages as soon 
as possible. Packages that do not work with the release may end up not 
being distributed with Octave 4.0.0. 

Thanks for your contribution, 

The above is current state of the control package.
