As some people on this list are already aware, I have been making test
releases of the current Octave sources available for a few weeks now.
I am announcing this new test release on the help-octave mailing list
because I would like to get a few more people involved in testing
before 2.0 is released.
You can get the current test release via anonymous ftp from
ftp.che.wisc.edu in the directory /pub/octave/pre-2.0:

I've configured and compiled this version with
configure --enable-shared --enable-lite-kernel
on the following systems:
DEC Alpha, OSF/1 3.2, gcc 2.7.2, and libg++ 2.7.1
i586, Linux 2.0.0, gcc 2.7.2, libg++ 2.7.14, and libc 5.2.18
Binary versions of the test releases are not generally available.
A list of changes since version 1.1.1 is available in the file NEWS in
the pub/octave/pre-2.0 ftp directory. This file is also in the
Please report any problems to the normal bug-octave mailing list. If
possible, use the function `bug_report' to report bugs, as it provides
a lot of useful information, and using it will also help to find bugs
in the bug reporting function.
