Welcome new developers!
Some days ago two more pairs of helping hands joined PyCAM’s development: Paul Bonser and John Wiggins from the ATX Hackerspace (hopefully I did not forget someone).
Quickly a lot of progress happened:
- version control was switched from Subversion to Git
- the development tree layout was structured in a more common way
- a simple benchmark script was added for performance measurements
- one performance bottleneck was removed (reduced benchmark time by 17%)
(see full changelog)
Maybe most importantly the development mailinglist finally came to life. Almost 40 messages were exchanged within the last four days. Prior to that it was less than one mail per month.
Let’s hope for even more inspiring progress in the next weeks! Especially performance improvements seem to be on the top of the current list of things to be done …
