While the debut of GCC 8.1 was the GNU Project's biggest software release of the week, GNU Octave 4.4 also crept out as the latest feature release.

Octave, the high-level programming language for numerical computations akin to -- and largely compatible with -- MATLAB, is out with its newest stable feature release.

Octave 4.4 adds a graphical variable editor, defaults to 64-bit builds on 64-bit systems, no longer is starting the GUI by default from the Octave command, new math functions have been added, and changes to existing functions.
