Re: 4.4 Release Checklist - Item 3 - Must Fix Bugs

Rik-4
The bugs that are going to be addressed for the Variable Editor this
release have been fixed.

Are there any other must-fix bugs left?

Maybe this one about dbquit no longer working in 4.4
(https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=detailitem&item_id=53426)?

The README file for Windows, which is kept in the MXE repo also does need
to be updated (https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?53488).

I may have come across a couple more 4.4.0 bugs.  They both have to do
with successfully building the documentation, with I think is a high
priority to keep bundle-builders happy.

http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?53644
This one fixes an address violation caught by ASAN we discussed.  It has
to do with having OpenGL line stipple on when doing filled GL_QUADS.  At
first appearance, this seems to fix problems I've had with building the
documentation figures all the way on some KDE/Plasma systems for which I
haven't installed the Nvidia driver and Nouveau comes standard.

https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?53656
After getting to the point of having all the documentation figures with
the above fix, I now see a LaTeX error in which there appears to be
doc/liboctave/liboctave.texi missing from the build-directory, which I
always pick different from the source-directory.  But I think that file
is in the $(srcdir) and needs to be implicitly transfered over to the
build tree.  Given the proximity to release, perhaps JWE should tackle
this one.
