Re: 5.1


Hi Wayne,

Sounds good! What's the plan for the WX legacy canvases? Pcbnew,
gerbview, cvpcb and pl_editor still use the WX canvas in legacy tool
mode (but also have GAL canvas+tool framework), whereas eeschema has a
GAL canvas and legacy tools.

I know we're not planning to remove the legacy tool system from Pcbnew
and friends for 5.1, but do the canvases need changing over to GAL
canvas+legacy tools?
