[Slackbuilds-users] Unmaintained builds - want any of these?

Hi all,

I would like to take:
Even the latest version (5.1.25) being from 2015, the project is not dead.
But the maintainers update the source code only if necessary.

I guess that
isn't active anymore. The project's home page listed at SBo (
https://qtoctave.wordpress.com/) is no longer from the project.
Additionally, octave >= 4.x has a good GUI, which turns qtoctave

Best regards,
