millimeter support is already in :). Just setup and select bits that are set to mm units and it'll switch over automatically. The only catch, is hog and carve bits both have to be the same measurement sort, you can't mix and match.

Ohh thats good in one way, but I would love have a setting so I know that everything from importing images to selecting endmill would reflect into either mm or inches.
and mixing preconfigured mm/inches endmills would be great :)

I have actually started playing with the software and I really like it!

Well, images are size independant, and all the units in the UI are just treated as mm or inch, whichever matches the pair of bits selected. It doesn't provide any automatic conversions when you switch the bit sort, mostly just because I didn't think of it :). Ie if you have a 4"x4" carving setup, and switch to mm bits, that 4x4 dimension is now 4mm x 4mm. Also, since I suspect most haven't noticed, if you have a general setup you like, you can go to File -> Save Default Project, and it'll load up with those bits/values every time you run things so you don't have to reselect every time.
