Neil and I have been talking about some interesting ways to clean up and improve some things for the next release.

To Me, it sounds like He's got some great ideas and like you I'm pretty eager to see what he has in mind.

Quick update not related to the code cleanup (have not had time to do much the last couple of weeks) - but to answer an earlier question someone on the forum had.

EMC2Ardunino will work with a virtual machine.

I just did a quick test having built and installed the "simulation only" mode of EMC2 into a 12.04 Ubuntu VM running in Parallels on a MAC.

The only change I needed to do from the stand alone system I has was to comment all lines with reference to "parport" in the my-mill.ini file.

The best part for me is that now i can run in 12.04 i can use wireshark to monitor and debug the USB traffic between EMC2 and Arduino.
