Current TODO list
- Implement plane switching to support milling (in progress)
- 3D view (OpenGL, also in progress)
- Move path discretization code into the kernel, support in-program fast feeds, pauses. I deferred this till "later times", and now this seems to be the right decision: the implementation I had in mind before looks flawed to me now.
- Support EMC's rs274ngc interpreter (some initial adoption has been done already). This interpreter is a nice option, but in its current form it is not suitable for 4-axis wire EDM, so the current interpreter is not going away.
Future plans and thoughts include more compatibility with EMC: become compatible with HAL, and make -mync real-time kernels an option for RTAPI. I've investigated into it recently, and it looks perfectly possible.
