% \frametitle{Possible future developments}
% \begin{itemize}
% \item Find a nicer syntax for indexed sums/products
% \item Implement other control structures: \texttt{elsif}, \texttt{switch/case}, \texttt{while/until} loops
% \item Implement macro-functions (or templates), with a syntax like:
% \small
% \verb+@#define QUADRATIC_COST(x, x_ss, phi) = phi/2*(x/x_ss-1)^2+
% \normalsize

\item Inconvenients:
\begin{itemize}
\item slower than MATLAB
\item less user friendly (however note that there is a graphical user
interface to Octave called ``qtoctave'')

called ``qtoctave'' that can be installed on top of Octave)

\begin{itemize}
\item Since version 4.0, Dynare works on top of Octave
\item This makes Dynare 100\% free software
\item All features of Dynare work with Octave, except:
\begin{itemize}
\item loading of Excel files for estimation
\item diffuse Kalman filter (used in models with unit roots)
\item some graphics automatically generated look bad, it may be necessary to recreate them manually
\end{itemize}
\item Almost all features of Dynare work with Octave (very few exceptions)
