What's New in This Release:
- One of the biggest new features for Octave 3.8 is a graphical user interface. It is the one thing that users have requested most often over the last few years and now it is almost ready. But because it is not quite as polished as we would like, we have decided to wait until the 4.0.x release series before making the GUI the default interface (until then, you can use the --force-gui option to start the GUI).
- Given the length of time and the number of bug fixes and improvements since the last major release Octave, we also decided against delaying the release of all these new improvements any longer just to perfect the GUI. So please enjoy the 3.8 release of Octave and the preview of the new GUI. We believe it is working reasonably well, but we also know that there are some obvious rough spots and many things that could be improved.
