Apology and Update
« on: September 22, 2015, 09:18:30 am »
Hello CamBam users!

I am hugely sorry for the lack of updates and status.  You all deserve much better so we are working hard to improve this.

I have been a bit reticent to make any announcements and promises of progress, as whenever I do, something unexpected seems to come and derail best laid plans. But importantly; CamBam / HexRay and 10Bulls are all very much alive and kicking and looking forward to a long future together with many updates and improvements to come!

A new ‘latest stable’ release (version 0.9.8P) is about to be released, later today. 
This is pretty much the current beta release with a few fixes in place.
After this, I will make some announcements on up-coming releases and status of developments.

I would like to extend another huge thank you to everyone on the forum, for your patience and support.  You have turned a humble bit of code into a fabulous and inspiring community.  I just cannot say this enough, nor put my gratitude into words sufficiently to express it!
Also, an extra big thank you to David (DH42) for his continued support and hard work keeping the forum running smoothly!

Regards

Andy Payne

I am exalted to see you back on! 

I'll look at the bug fixed stable release today or tomorrow.  I've been running P for a while and haven't noted any major problems. 
Getting started on CNC?  In or passing through my area?
If I have the time I'll be glad to show you a little in my shop.

This thread, despite the title, makes me very happy. There have been moments when I thought development has stopped completely. Glad I was wrong.
So many ideas have been brought in, so much effort and coding have been put in various plugins and scripts by a group of respectable forum members that I think the road map for CamBam development is drawn way forward into the future.

Other than some irritating bugs that I now know how to work around, I've been very happy with CamBam.  Even if the product development died completely, I'd probably continue to use it as long as it can run on Windows.  And that's even though I can get HSMXpress for free.

So any forward progress is just icing on the cake.   ;D
