Plans for the upcoming release v0.6
PyCAM’s architectural rewrite is close to its completion. Around 50 plugins with limited scope replaced a formerly huge pile of fairly complex GUI code. Some few features were added and most of the existing features of release v0.5.1 are working.
Since I like the approach of fairly regular releases, I plan to publish v0.6 by the end of this month. This release will lack some previously working features for the sake of getting a broader tester’s base for the new code. I also envision a broader participation of users/contributors who try to solve their specific problems by extending PyCAM via its new fairly simple plugin structure. I hope, that you share this vision :)
The most notably feature missing from the initial v0.6 release will be the command line handling (batch mode). It will be available again in v0.6.1. Additionally the current format of PyCAM’s GUI and task settings will not be compatible with previous releases. I hope, you don’t mind the break.
