Largest Matrix Size for Octave

I've done some online searching, and according to a 6-year-old post, it seems
that the largest acceptable matrix size for Octave is 2^31-2 elements, which
would use about 16 GB of RAM.  Is this still the case, or do current
versions of Octave allow 2^48-1 elements?

The 2^48-1 number was obtained from the following post that I saw about
MATLAB's limitations:

This post shows a chart, which gives the above numbers I just mentioned.

Here's the 6-year-old Octave post that I talked about:

It was from this post that I got the 16 GB number, which leads me to think
that this correlates to 2^31-2 elements, based on the MATLAB post.

Both of these posts are old.  Does anyone know whether or not Octave now
supports matricies which contain 2^48-1 elements?

Thanks so much for your time.
