I guess there are many definitions of bugs. I am not aware of any
reported bugs in the toolpath display in mill and so worry about a
project which you say is "months of work not days".
This extent of rewrite could surely have some teething troubles when
Others have commented that if they hit a problem in the latest
development version then they back-up a few versions. This
methodology is a problem for an OEM, as quite reasonably you will not
want to explore bugs in old *development* code but the OEM has to
respond to its customers.
Finally on another bit of semantics - I interpret a "lock-down" as
where the features are locked, not necessarily the code. The locked
features allow the documentation to be released and OEMs to prepare
distributions. As to bugs in the lock-down, something that is safety
critical or has no practical workaround should be fixed by a "point
release". Generally this should not involve much work above fixing
the code in the deevelopment version. Small bugs with workaround
would not warrant a point release.
- Hi SCOT, Yep that was my app over on the MACH site. I use an encoder
signal to identify each position with a unique ID. That part works
fine just got stuck on the hotswap logic inside of mach. (;-)
