I'm using maports. You can install the most recent Octave by ...

        sudo port install octave-devel

I recommend you do that. However, fist go to /Applications and delete gnuplot 
and Aquaterm. Macports will install those for you.

After the macports install, run a Terminal session and type "octave".
