Project Literature Review

Jason Shady
How are you Sir/Madam?

My name is Jason Shivute a student at the International University of Management . i'm currently doing my 4th year in Business Information Systems, which requires me to develop a working system/Application to graduate. 

I have chosen to develop a mathematical application and therefor i'm doing a literature review on your application Octave.

i plead that you please send me documentation of the application that outlines what methodologies and challenges you encountered during development.

yours faithfully

Jason Shivute

Dear Jason Shivute,

To me it is not very clear what you are looking for. There is some information about the project infrastructure [1] and Octave's comprehensive test suite [2] to avoid regression errors and alike. Current and past challenges are not really documented. Some generic ones are:

* stay compatible with twice a year releasing Matlab versions,
* adopt progress in the used programming languages (C++11) and tools (qt 5, gcc 7, python 3, ...), and
* respond to the many bug reports and feature requests.

There are for sure a lot items to add to cope with 25 years of development.

HTH, Kai
