Renamed or moved packages

Some packages have been renamed or merged over time. When this happens, a dummy transitional package is created -- empty and dependent on its new package. After some time, those are removed as well. The following is a list of such packages:

Unmaintained packages

The Octave Forge project is a location to develop multiple packages for GNU Octave. With time, some packages become unmaintained, usually because the original author no longer requires it and no one steps up to take its position. Without a maintainer or active user base, and as Octave evolves, we do not know how usable they are, so we can no longer honestly recommend their use.

They are still stored and release tarballs can be downloaded from our File Release System (same for the very old monolithic releases) . However, many of them have accumulated bug fixes and new features in the mercurial or SVN repositories, it simply happens that no maintainer has prepared a release. Because of this, we encourage users to check the development sources, not the released tarballs. Furthermore, bug reports for those packages continue to be welcome, and anyone wishing to take up the position of maintainer, please contact us through the maintainers mailing list.

The complete list of unmaintained packages is:
