Follow-up Comment #3, bug #41069 (project octave):
Also on MinGW it is possible to have several Octave versions installed in the
same MinGW directory layout.
That is the way I ran Octave when I could build it natively on MinGW (before
the GUI came); after building (configure/make) I simply installed it, i.e.
only the Octave files, and they went each in their own versioned subdir. I had
several Octave versions running alongside each other.
So as far as Octave dlls go (and for that matter, the scripts / lib / libexec
subdirs), I see no risks. The .exe files are versioned as well (now that I
mention I think it would be better if the MXE generated shortcuts would point
to the versioned .exe files)
I suppose it's the dependencies (which we do build but otherwise are beyond
our control) that impose more risk of being incompatible.
