By "release candidate" you mean 5.1.90 before 5.2.0?

Yes, I think it makes sense to do that even for a stable bug-fixing
release as a final check that "make dist" and the Windows builds work as


jwe and all,

currently I am uploading fresh builds of the stable branch 5.1.90,
including all 3x3 flavors of MXE and build logs to


This might take some time, but the most important ones


are already there.  Was it possible to publish that release on

    https://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/octave/  ?

I would be happy to announce a final regression test period from January
15 to 31 followed by a minor Octave 5.2.0 release, if no bad regressions
were discovered in that time.  Then all focus goes back to Octave 6.

A final note about the year 2020 change:  Basically, on Octave 5.2.0
there was no development in 2020.  Thus we might skip touching all
headers and just adapt the date in the most important places indicating
the year of the 5.2.0 release.

It looks like in the past we only uploaded the w64 build to alpha.gnu.org, not the w32 or w64-64 builds. Do you think all are needed there?

For 5.1.0 on ftp.gnu.org we did upload all w32, w64,
and w64-64 in installer exe, zip, and 7z formats.
