I am thinking about a new stable release of Kicad for the beginning
(first quarter) of 2010,
after I updated the documentation to include the new Netclasses and
layers setup info.
and also to have a decent delay to translate the GUI.
Dick, or Isaac, what is the status of the new dialog layers setup ?
Currently we have 2 versions.
dialog_layers_setup.cpp (and dialog_layers_setup_base.cpp) works fine
but have 2 minor problems
- dialog is not resizable (very minor pb).
- dialog does not show translated sentences (due to use of static
strings, that cannot be translated because the constructor is called
before the locale is kown) , more annoying.
Also dialog_layers_setup2.cpp seems not finished.
Thanks for an info about this.
I have assumed responsibility for the work. According to Isaac he was
finding it difficult to a) find time and to a lesser extent b) get his
work accepted by me.
Well "first quarter" is a rather large window of time. The layer setup
dialog is only a small part of what this vision entailed. (Layer
selection and visibility widget is part of it also.) I'll see if I can
push this forward during some of the weekends in December. I am
confident I can get it done within your time window, even if that means
pushing it out into January.
Most importantly, please know that I am committed to it, and you should
start seeing progress again soon.
