CHANGES
This is a upstream bug fix release of 3.4.x

For all the main changes
http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/NEWS-3.4.html

DESCRIPTION
The GNU Octave language for numerical computations
Octave is a (mostly Matlab (R) compatible)
high-level language, primarily intended for
numerical computations.  It provides a convenient
command-line interface for solving linear and
nonlinear problems numerically.

KNOWN BUGS

1) on cygwin-1.7.9 the plotting function is working very bad.
This is due to a cygwin bug and is not a octave bug.
Any cygwin snapshots after 2011-06-01 solve the issues,
so the next cygwin-1.7.10 will definetly  remove the bug.

2) Only on cygwin version printing plots from fltk cause segfault.
Never succeeded, for lack of time and competence, to identify the
root cause : octave, fltk, cygwin ?
To reproduce: run octave and at prompt
-------------------------
  graphics_toolkit ("fltk")
  x=1:10;
  plot(x,x)
  print("fltk.png","-dpng")
-------------------------
the plot is built and printed as file but octave crashes.
