Done. I created the Wiki page and sent some e-mails about it. I'll assign this bug to myself so no one duplicates any effort.

OK, then let's start that wiki page or use the task tracker to make a list of items that need to be done before the release.

I don't think it will be that hard either, but I can do this if it will free you to work on bugs that I can't tackle. There are a number of parser oddities and the regression with the profiler (involving the symbol table) which I would rather have solved.

I think we should add the core graphics object. It is easy enough to add the properties and functions that manipulate them. The harder part is adding the support for drawing, but since a rectangle object is very similar to a line, it should not be too hard. Unless someone else really wants to work on this job, I can do it.

This is a small incompatibility. Matlab implements rectangles as a base graphic object, akin to a line or patch object. In Octave, we synthesize a rectangle from an hggroup with a patch child. Because of this, there is no way to set default properties as shown below.

Perhaps the property list could be changed in graphics.in.h. Otherwise, maybe a whole new low-level graphics object is required for rectangles.
