Octave 7.2.0 will be a bug fix release for issues found since the release of Octave 7.1.0.

Please, test the release candidate and report any new issues or regressions you can find. Just leave a note here, or open a bug report on Savannah.

If no issues are found, this will probably be released as Octave 7.2.0 within a few weeks from now.

Thank you for testing and happy bug hunting! :slightly_smiling_face:

@rik or anyone else with access to the savannah configuration: Could you please add a 7.1.90 tag to the release selection?

EDIT: Added 7.1.90 tag (Rik).

I updated the build rule in a fork of MSYS2 to the release candidate:
main · mmuetzel/MINGW-packages@4d0f4e6 (github.com)

It built fine. And the MINGW64 version passes the test suite without unexpected errors. (I haven’t tested the other variants yet.)

Unfortunately, I couldn’t join the last online meeting. Was Octave 7.2.0 discussed during that meeting? Is there a planned approximate date for releasing Octave 7.2.0?

@jwe: Like we talked about in yesterday’s meeting, I added entries about the recent changes to the NEWS file.
I think we are ready to release Octave 7.2.0 whenever you are.
