This might be weird to see but yes, there’s a new release on a Monday instead of a Friday
As 1.0 gets closer and closer, me and the dev team have been so happy that the list of bugs has gotten smaller and smaller and we’re mostly now spending our time on small fixes and tweaks. Hurrah!
Some things that are very exciting with this new version is that we managed to speed up the start-up time of gSender (let us know if you see that on your end) and we’ve got security certification now set up which means that after gSender receive a few hundred more downloads, we should now be a trusted source of software and not ring any alarms
What’s else is new / fixed?
- New recognized CNCs added and unrecognized devices are now accessible from the connection widget
- UI fixes for incorrect baud rate
- New EEPROM categories for easier navigation
- Clearer Help menu
- More fixes and improvements to endstop-related functions
- New LongMill default firmware that better supports endstops
- Jogging now back to stopping immediately
We hope these updates make a positive difference to how you use gSender. It should also make it better to use for other CNCs outside of the LongMill.
Within the next few weeks we want to really flesh out any other impactful bugs or features that remain in gSender:
It’s from feedback from all of you that we can continue to make gSender (and by extension the LongMill) better and easier to use for everyone. If you’ve given us feedback before and you feel we haven’t yet addressed it, then post it again (maybe we misplaced your comment). We want to get to the point that everyone using it is happy with what it offers to them
Also, even more updates have hit the gSender documentation with more still on the way. Give it a read and watch out for more:
Happy Monday y’all!
