I propose to release gnuplot 4.0 now -- within 1 or 2 weeks max.
From the implementation point of view, the following should be done:
* Fix gplt_x11.c to compile on OS/2 again (my mail from few minutes ago)
* SF Bug "885279 Reading '%s' timefmt is not 64 bit safe" to be included
Other changes needed (Lars probably knows best what to change):
* the VERSION, README, faq/ et al files need to be upgraded to 4.0.
* Web page should be updated.
Optional: release gnuplot-3.8k right now as 4.0 prerelease, and 4.0 when
all the files with new version 4 are edited.
Further, gnuplot deserves new web page. I've made some work for that. Please
have a look at
It should replace the current http://www.gnuplot.info and gnuplot.sf.net.
I will also close my gnuplot section on my web page -- I contributed its
info into the proposed main gnuplot web. Maybe someone also wants to do this
You are welcome to send patches or replacements etc to me. But avoid writing
"please write about ..." -- do it yourself and send me the solution. Well,
the most economic way for me is if somebody else takes care about the web
... especially, if people don't like my proposed design.
The proposed images for the main site could be replaced by some more
beautiful, like here:
You can propose something.
Can someone contribute link to an archive of the gnuplot newsgroups?
Have fun too.
