Hi Jennifer,

Regarding Fink, if you add the unstable branch you'll have access to version 
Octave 3.0.0.

If you run "fink configure" you'll be able to turn the unstable branch on (I 
recommend you do this since nearly everything I find useful is there, and I 
don't find any of it particularly "unstable").

Once you've enabled the unstable branch, do a "fink selfupdate; fink index; 
fink scanpackages"

Then you can run "fink install octave" and in an hour or so you'll have Octave 
3.0.0 running.
