It is dcumented in the NEWS which is a list of important, visible changes to Octave made in the current release. You can see the NEWS by typing 'news' at the prompt. The feature you mention is the first listed change.

It should also be documented somewhere in the manual.

Suggested language and a location in the manual would be welcome.

You're right, this is documented in the NEWS file for the 4.2 release

https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/NEWS-4.2.html

but is not documented in the user manual yet.

It seems as if new octave 4.2.0 supports number literals of kind 10_000, nowhere documented.

A little strange how freely this is implemented:
even 10__0 and 10._0 work.

Hm...
I did not find anywhere an according feature in matlab.
Thus I think it should be remarked, that this is special to octave.
