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.

I see, now I understand. Do you think the section "Compiling for your Linux system" will work for octave 5.1? I would like to use the patched packages in octave-mxe for the 5.1, instead of fighting each package individually.

I wonder why linux octave 5.1 from flatpak did not use these pre-compiled packages right away, perhaps they are not included in the flatpak or must be "linked" somehow?

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.
That is fine for me, I need just working octave with working set of default packages on linux. My project will take a few months to complete and I do not want to code for an outdated octave version.

Thanks a lot,
