Agreed, Grace is missing from the list.

My experience with Grace is that it is great for "publication quality"
output from octave, but would drive a normal user insane during day-to-day
usage. Although Grace allows interactively setting fonts, axes, line type
and width, etc. after the plot is on the screen, and then saving the plot
for future modifications, all those extra controls come with a
time-consuming cost in productivity.

If possible, it would be nice to keep Grace as an option, unless the new
octave graphics package, whatever it is, has some options similar to Grace
for publication graphics.

Happy U.S. Turkey Day to all.
