Release notes V3.38

In my new program version V3.38 I once again worked with the function G38.2 for milling.
Hi, GrblGru!
Thanks for the perfect feature!!!
However, I have not figured it out yet (how to create an object height map without using a simulation mode).
I don't always need to create an STL (usually - only height map).
I expected that after setting the scanning parameters and pressing the "Start STL Scan" button, the machine will start the measurement cycle.
Also, I suggest adding a very useful and simple function to search for the center of cylindrical blanks (like as my video).
I made a simple touch probe for this purpose.

the GCode is calculated when you open or change a value in the measurement dialog.
You can view the generated GCode in the editor. ( 4th toolbar button from the left )
To start the correct measurement on the machine, just press the green 'Start' button.
Have a look at the video from 7:50.

Your probe looks great. I'll write you a macro for it.
My workflow: Only a 2D-editor and GrblGru, that's it
