Remaining must-fix bugs for 4.4

Rik-4
jwe,

This bug with Ctrl+C on Windows seems to me the last one to fix for the 4.4
release (https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?53635).  But, it may be
too difficult to handle just before the release.

OK, I'm looking at this now.  I have an idea to try but it will take
some time to build and test.

Rik, have a look at this bug as another potential 4.4 fix:

https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?53683

It could use your attention to detail.  Very small change that might
avoid a few bug reports.

I checked in the following changeset

   http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/ebe32e8062ab

so that the Qt help files will be installed if they are available, even
if Octave was configured with --disable-docs or if the tools to build
those files were not available.  This should help for anyone who builds
from a tarball distribution file because they will include the Qt help
files already built and ready to install.  It won't help for anyone who
builds from the hg sources.  But if you are doing that, then my position
is still that you are a developer and you need to have the tools
installed if you want things to work properly.

It is a bummer we can’t get http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?49053 in. I think it probably needs some more testing on Linux with HiDPI and non-HiDPI for complete validation, but it appears to have fixed the MacOS issue and I think it should fix Linux issues too (though there might be a window frame scaling issue on Linux/Windows that MacOS already takes care of).

Since a lot of people are starting to have HiDPI screens, I think we should try to get this tested and in as soon as possible.

Yes, but it definitely needs more testing.  Also, the whole Octave project is moving to more frequent  release cycles.  It is already month 5 of 2018, and we should have another release at the end of the year, so this feature actually won't be delayed too long.

Thanks! I can confirm that your changeset fixes the problem for the 4.4
release.
