    Octave version 3.4.0 (or better).  The "communications" package was
    used only for its "randint" function; now the "randi" function,
    introduced on Octave 3.4.0, is used instead.
+** Reorganize the unit test suite.  All available tests can be
+   executed by running "test_ga".  Fix bug #3287917 (Debian bug
+   #622929).
+** Rename the package from "Genetic Algorithm and Direct Search" to
+   "Genetic Algorithm" as only the Genetic Algorithm is implemented.
+   Direct Search will not be implemented in the foreseeable future.
