We are pleased to announce the release of Dynare 4.6.1.
This maintenance release fixes various bugs.
The Windows, macOS and source packages are already available for download at
[the Dynare website](https://www.dynare.org/download/).
All users are strongly encouraged to upgrade.
This release is compatible with MATLAB versions ranging from 7.9 (R2009b) to
9.7 (R2019b), and with GNU Octave versions 5.2.0 (under Windows) and 4.4.1
(under macOS).
Here is a list of the problems identified in version 4.6.0 and that have been
fixed in version 4.6.1:
* Installation on macOS would fail if the GCC compiler was supposed to be
installed and `www.google.com` was not reachable or blocked
* Dynare++ was missing the `dynare_simul.m` file
* The parameter vector `M_.params` would not be correctly updated after calls
to `stoch_simul` and `discretionary_policy` if parameters had been modified
in a steady state file
* The `stoch_simul` command with both the `nograph` and `TeX` options would
crash
* The `stoch_simul` command with the `noprint` option would crash
* The `prior moments` command would crash if the used parameter vector
triggered an error code
* In case of problem, the `discretionary_policy` command would crash instead of
aborting with a proper error code
* Computing of prior/posterior statistics would not work in parallel
* Closing of parallel estimation on GNU/Linux could crash
* The `histval` command would not work in combination with the
`predetermined_variables` command
* Ramsey optimal policy with multiple instruments would crash if a steady state
file returned complex values, instead of providing an error message
* The `model_diagnostics` command would not correctly update the parameter
vector if the latter was set in a steady state file
* The `model_diagnostics` command would ignore the `nocheck` steady state flag
As a reminder, the list of new features introduced in versions 4.6.x can be
found in the [release notes for
4.6.0](https://www.dynare.org/new-dynare-release/dynare-4.6.0-released/).
