Octave 2.1.56 is now available for ftp from ftp.octave.org in the
directory /pub/octave/bleeding-edge:

This version should fix most of the bugs reported since 2.1.55.

There are still some significant features related to N-d arrays that
need to be implemented, but this version does provide a cat function
and also allows you to use the [] to concatenate N-d numeric arrays.
This still needs to be extended to handle cell and structure arrays
and user-defined types.  We hope to fix this for 2.1.57.  Indexing and
indexed assignment for N-d arrays should also be much better in
2.1.56.  If you find that another of your favorite N-d array
operations doesn't work, please mention it so we can have some idea of
what features are missed the most.  Patches are also welcome.

As always, if your favorite bug is still not fixed, please report it.

Also, 2.1.50 is still the recommended version, but 2.1.56 should be an
improvement over 2.1.55.  Unless some serious problem shows up, it
seems likely that 2.1.56 will become the new recommended version in
the next week or so.
