Surprice "gift" inside the Octave package

Today I noticed that my Octave packages got upgraded to Octave 3.2 (from 3.1). I don't know when that happened, but I immediately typed news to see what's new. I was expecting a few bug fixes, one or two new features and some code rewrites. I was wonderfully surprised by the large number of major changes that come with 3.2.
The full list is available on, but just to mention a few:
  • Many optimizations: sorting and searching, matrix transposition, array indexing, logical operators, etc.
  • Block comments: this will allow me to easily comment large chunks of code
  • Object Oriented Programming: I'm not sure how soon I'll get to use that, but it's nice to know it is there.

  1. It turns out Octave 3.2 came with Ubuntu Karmic Koala. Jaunty still has 3.0.1 in its repositories.
