Hi Doug,

you seem to have done much work to bring the control package to its
release state now. But do you really want to support Octave versions
down to 3.0.0?  I had bumped it from originally >3.8.0 to >4.0.0 to
make our life easier with the linked code, >3.0.0 would be more
versions than before, and probably too difficult to handle...

Once we have agreed on the supported Octave versions, would you like
me to produce a release tarball?


I made a mistake, you are correct >4.0.0 is the minimum way to go but...
I have tried it on  4.0.1-rc4 ( which i have on an old machine) and it installs but fails a lot of tests,
so we should  go to >4.1.0

Test on 4.2.0 all pass
Test on stable all pass.
Test on default  some fails that I am looking into.  they segfault octave when calling fortran code.
    I think it is a pointer size problem but not sure yet.

So if you fix this and a new release data then I would suggest that you do a release now. 
There will always be more things to fix and there is time  before default gets released.

thanks for your help.
