Octave version 2.0.6 is now available for ftp from
in the directory /pub/octave.  Diffs from the previous release are
also available in the same directory.

  -rw-r--r--   1 jwe  3344780 May 27 14:04 octave-2.0.6.tar.gz
  -rw-r--r--   1 jwe    65152 May 27 14:36 octave-2.0.5-2.0.6.patch.gz

Most bugs reported since the release of version 2.0 have been fixed.

There are two new features:

  * The new built-in variable default_eval_print_flag controls whether
    Octave prints the results of commands executed by eval() that do
    not end with semicolons.  The default is 1.

  * The new built-in constant OCTAVE_HOME specifies the top-level
    directory where Octave is installed.

Octave is a high-level interactive language primarily intended for
numerical computations.  It is mostly compatible with MATLAB.
