Closing report since new development will take place around polarplot.

Why don't you file a new report about polarplot being missing.

polar still doesn't take property-value pairs in 4.2.0, neither does polar in Matlab 2016b.

since it's been a few years, should this bug either be closed, or dropped to a low priority wishlist item, and a new 'missing function' bug be created for polarplot? Or this could just be retitled 'missing matlab function polarplot'?

Yes to comment #3.  For Matlab compatibility Octave can introduce a new polarplot function after 4.2.0 release.

Matlab includes "polarplot" since recent versions (R2016a). This includes support for property-value-pairs. [1]
It looks like "polar" is deprecated now by them. [2]

plot3 now accepts property/value pairs.  I changed the bug report title to reflect that polar still doesn't.

Polar could probably me modified to support prop/value pairs, but note that Matlab does not support this extended option either (http://www.mathworks.com/help/techdoc/ref/polar.html).  Octave is no worse than the competition in this regard so I'm lowering the priority of this item.

polar() and plot3() depend upon _plt_ in the same manner that plot(), loglog(), semilogx(), and semilogy() do, but do not accept the same syntax as these other functions.

Can polar()/plot3() be modified to support the syntax below ?

polar(..., propname, propvalue)
