My list of items for 4.4 is

   * Make the variable editor feature of the GUI work properly, 
including for structures and cell arrays.  This may require some changes 
in the way we communicate between the GUI and the interpreter.

   * Fix bugs that are marked as blockers.  There are currently 2.

   * Fix (as much as possible) any bugs that are marked as regressions 
since the 4.2.x release series.  I suspect that this is a fairly large 
task as I count about 20 bugs in Octave that are tagged this way.

Other than those items, it would be nice to also fix as many of the bugs 
that are marked as important.


I would like to add the merge of pending GSOC projects (I'm aware of
"iterative methods for sparse linear systems" and "special functions").
This would motivate further students and mentors.


This looks like quite a bit of work, but all worth doing. It would be VERY good to
include the iterative methods and special functions. In addition to motivation, these
are seriously important.
