The packages in the Windows installer are built from the released package 
versions with the additional patches from the source I pointed to in the 
previous mail.
Some (but afaik not all) of these patches are taken from the development 
version of the respective packages.
In general, we don't care much about compatibility with previous Octave 
versions for the bundled packages. This is probably more important for the 
package developers.
