./math/octave, High-level language, intended for numerical computations

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.4.1nb1, Package name: octave-4.4.1nb1, Maintainer: adam

GNU Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical
computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for
solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing
other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible
with Matlab. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language.

Octave has extensive tools for solving common numerical linear algebra
problems, finding the roots of nonlinear equations, integrating
ordinary functions, manipulating polynomials, and integrating ordinary
differential and differential-algebraic equations. It is easily extensible
and customizable via user-defined functions written in Octave's own
language, or using dynamically loaded modules written in C++, C, Fortran,
or other languages.

Summary of important user-visible changes for version 4.4 (2018-04-30):
----------------------------------------------------------------------

 ** A graphical Variable Editor has been added to the GUI interface.
    It uses a spreadsheet-like interface for quick, intuitive editing
    of variables.  The Variable Editor is launched by double-clicking
    on a variable name in the Workspace Window or by typing
    "openvar VARIABLE_NAME" in the Command Window.

 ** On systems with 64-bit pointers, --enable-64 is now the default and
    Octave always uses 64-bit indexing.  However, if the configure
    script determines that the BLAS library uses 32-bit integers, then
    operations using the following libraries are limited to arrays with
    dimensions that are smaller than 2^31 elements:

      BLAS  LAPACK  QRUPDATE  SuiteSparse  ARPACK

    Additionally, the following libraries use "int" internally, so
    maximum problem sizes are always limited:

      glpk  Qhull

 ** The octave command no longer starts the GUI by default.  Most users
    starting Octave from a shell were expecting the command line
    interface, and desktop launchers already required the `--force-gui'
    option.  With this change, desktop launchers should be modified to
    use the new option `--gui'.  The previous `--force-gui' option will
    continue to work, and maps to `--gui', but it will be removed in
    Octave 6.

 ** A known bug in Qt (https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-55357) is
    addressed by limiting GUI sub-panel relocation capabilities for Qt
    versions in the range >= 5.6.1 and < 5.7.1.  However, this may not
    thoroughly avoid issues on all platforms.

 ** A new container data type--containers.Map--is available.  Map is a
    key/value storage container (a.k.a, a hash) that efficiently allows
    storing and retrieving values by name, rather than by position which
    is how arrays work.

 ** The bareword "import" is now recognized in scripts and functions.
    However, the functionality to import functions and classes from
    other namespaces into the local scope has not yet been implemented.
    Attempting to use "import" will provoke an error message.

 ** hex2num and num2hex now work for integer and char types and num2hex
    may optionally return a cell array of strings instead of a character
    array.  If given a cell array of strings, hex2num now returns a
    numeric array of the same size as the input cell array.  Previously,
    hex2num would accept a cell array of strings of arbitrary dimension
    but would always return a column vector.

 ** New special functions cosint, sinint, and gammaincinv have been added.

 ** Special functions in Octave have been rewritten for larger input
    domains, better accuracy, and additional options.
    * gammainc now accepts negative real values for X.
    * improved accuracy for gammainc, betainc, betaincinv, expint.
    * gammainc has new options "scaledlower" and "scaledupper".
    * betainc, betaincinv have new option "upper".

 ** The "names" option used in regular expressions now returns a struct
    array, rather than a struct with a cell array for each field.  This
    change was made for Matlab compatibility.

 ** The quadcc function now uses both absolute tolerance and relative
    tolerance to determine the stopping criteria for an integration.
    To be compatible with other quadXXX functions, such as quadgk, the
    calling syntax has changed to

      quadcc (f, a, b, [AbsTol, [RelTol]])

    To update existing code, change instances of RelTol to [0, RelTol].

      quadcc (f, a, b, tol) => quadcc (f, a, b, [0, tol])

    A warning that a single tolerance input is now interpreted as an
    absolute tolerance will be issued in Octave versions 4.4 and 5,
    after which it will be removed.  The warning has ID
    "Octave:quadcc:RelTol-conversion" and can be disabled with

      warning ("off", "Octave:quadcc:RelTol-conversion")

 ** The qr function now returns a standard factorization unless
    explicitly instructed to perform an economy factorization by using a
    final argument of 0.

 ** The Qt graphics toolkit now supports offscreen printing without osmesa
    if Octave was built with Qt >= 5.1.

 ** The built-in pager for display of large data is now disabled by
    default.  To re-enable it for every Octave session add the following
    to your .octaverc file:

      more on;

 ** The FLTK toolkit is no longer prioritized for development.  The
    number of Octave Maintainers is too small to support three different
    graphic toolkits.  New development will target the Qt toolkit.
    While no longer prioritized, the FLTK toolkit is not deprecated and
    there is no schedule for its removal.

 ** The graphic object property "PickableParts" has been implemented
    which controls whether an object can accept mouse clicks.

 ** The graphic object property "Interruptible" has been fully
    implemented which controls whether a running callback function can
    be interrupted by another callback function.

 ** The graphic object property "HitTest" has been updated to be fully
    compatible with Matlab.

 ** Text objects now implement the properties "BackgroundColor",
    "EdgeColor", "LineStyle", "LineWidth", and \ 
"Margin".

 ** An initial implementation of alpha transparency has been made for
    patch and surface objects.  Printing to svg and pdf is supported.

 ** ishandle now returns true for both graphics handle objects and
    Java objects.  The latter change was made for Matlab compatibility.
    Use ishghandle or isgraphics if it is important not to include Java
    objects.

 ** The pkg command now accepts a URL as an argument, allowing a valid
    Octave package to be installed from any remote host with one command,
    for example

      pkg install https://example.org/download/example-package.tar.gz

 ** The following statistical functions have been moved from core
    Octave to the statistics package available from Octave Forge.

    deprecated in Octave 4.4 and will be removed from Octave 6 (or whatever
    version is the second major release after 4.4):

      Object               | Property                | Value

"light"

 ** The rectangle and ellipse annotation property "edgecolor" has been
    deprecated and will be removed from Octave 6 (or whatever version
    is the second major release after 4.4).  Use the property "color"
    instead.
