I pushed a patch here that re-instates the macro with the previous signature:

With that change, I still cannot install the parallel package in Octave 7. It is failing with the following message for me:

>> pkg install -forge parallel

I changed the signature of that macro to have correct visibility attributes for symbols in core Octave.
It didn't cross my mind that this was part of the API.
I'll check if we can restore the previous signature in core Octave.

Confirmed, the parallel package build/install fails in the development version of Octave.

For Octave 7.0.0, with v 4.0.0 of the parallel package, a "pkg update" command fails with this error:
