Re-engaging with Maslow, Returned to Web Control and Holey Calibration. What the heck?!

Everybody,

Thanks for the inputs. Its all starting to make sense now. I’m feeling much better about the direction I need to head in. Seeing how I am starting essentialy from scratch, I am going to give WC with Holey a go first.

Thanks again for all the help.

there are a number of patches that have been made to the stock firmware and GC
code, but they cannot get to users unless there is a release.

We went a good while with releases every two weeks, and the announcment was to
move releases to a longer timeframe as there were fewer changes, but they just
stopped instead.

Sooooo… not to go off on a tangent but I have to ask, who’s in charge of incorporating GC patches and releasing?

Looking at the Releases page here (https://github.com/MaslowCNC/GroundControl/releases), looks like it’s @bar.

Would the firmware options in WC contain those patches?

Never mind, David answered this in his post above.

I have to check to see where in time the stock firmware is based upon (my build system checks out a particular sha) but I haven’t changed it for a while, so it’s old. There might be some “recent” changes in the stock firmware master branch that have not been incorporated into the holey branch of my firmware fork.

I’ve been playing with the Linux version of WC today. So far so good, I’m going to proceed with it. I really like the layout, it’s pretty intuitive. Also, there’s activity around it’s upkeep so that’s a bit reassuring.
