Yes, provided that any update is not reliant on a feature of master that is not in the release version.


So full speed ahead with ideas, got it!!

I struggled to understand Phill's comment but my point is 2.8 should revert to updates being released on point releases to 2.8 and any new features should be restricted to 2.9 master branch. Lets revert to the development cycle that should always have been in place... Users need a stable system to work with if they want to change screen sets or add their own enhancements..

Or live dangerously on master which is the only life I've ever known..

I guess I understand what you're getting at. But what about bugs that get squished after release?

As far as the users go they don't have to update...

I'd say we squished them all, but that seems like a silly thing to do to cause an unnecessary jinx LOL

Edit: I did think of renaming them like you did but then someone will complain that they press Torch On and it doesn't turn on...


Used the following steps, seems to have the same results, my torch button is still named what I named it. What am I doing wrong?
> cd linuxcnc-dev/src
> git checkout 2.8
> ./autogen.sh
> ./configure --with-realtime=uspace
> make
> sudo make setuid

Only line I didnt use was:
> git clone git://github.com/linuxcnc/linuxcnc.git linuxcnc-dev

That is how it works if the user doesn't change the source repository. All updates between 'point' releases are on the buildbot so if users wish to take advantage of them they can. Nothing has changed.

Try:
ls -l ~/linuxcnc/configs/<your_plasma_config>/plasmac/plasmac_axis.py
and make sure it is a link pointing to the plasmac source directory

I guess I could just delete the directory and start again?

It's not a huge deal, but I'd just be worried I wouldn't pick something up for some reason.
