Finally, GNU Octave 4.2 was released (also see the new shiny website). It comes with
odeget and some
odeXX compatible time steppers that have been developed with contributions within recent GSOC and SOCIS projects.
macOS users can get the release already today by using homebrew as usual
brew install octave
The graphical user interface of Octave 4.0 can only be compiled with Qt4. Homebrew is dropping 4.x support and moving towards 5.x. Several Octave dependencies have already been updated (e.g. Qscintilla2, see e.g. this issue. However, the upcoming Octave 4.2 (release is scheduled for September 2016) will have full Qt5 as discussed here.The standard installation uses the command line interface. If you need Octave with graphical user interface then this should work
brew update brew upgrade #to get the latest qscintilla brew install octave --with-gui --HEADUpdate: The post has been edited on Aug 20 since the new formula is now available in homebrew’s science repository.
- Generalised eigenvalue problem
- Exponential Integrators
- ode15s project proposal
- Implement boolean operations on polygons
- Symbolic Package
Since a few days the most obvious Octave bug on Mac OS X has been fixed: the alignment of dock widget titles, see commit e870a68742a6 (thanks Marius and Torsten). Homebrew users can try it immediately by compiling the development sources, i.e.,
brew uninstall octave
brew install octave --with-gui --HEAD
