    Release Notes: This release implemented extrusion of 2D models and included many small fixes and improvements. Windows users will enjoy a more modern look in the GUI theme and Linux users will be happy about better integration into the desktop. Performance of the 3D preview was improved drastically.

          Release Notes: This major release features parallel processing (automatically using all CPU cores of your computer) and even distributed processing (connecting multiple hosts to a shared pool of worker processes). Additionally, a standalone executable for Windows is available (for which no dependencies are required). Climb and conventional milling styles are configurable. The new toolpath strategy "Contour->Follow" can calculate exact contours of a model. Automatically distributed support bridges keep your 3D model attached to the outer material. The path precision (G61/G64) for the GCode interpreter is configurable.

            Release Notes: This major release features support for 2D contour models (in DXF or SVG format) combined with a new EngraveCutter strategy. Major improvements in the support grid specification and the command line interface were made. Numerous improvements in the GUI and the generated GCode as well as a pile of minor bugfixes were incorporated.

                Release Notes: This release features an optional support grid for holding the object at its position during the machine operation. Additionally, an approximation of the required machine time for each toolpath is calculated. Changing the unit size (inch/mm) now can trigger a recalculation of the model and other dimensions.

                  Release Notes: This release features a new (experimental) simulation mode for visualizing the material cutting of a toolpath. Comments are welcome. Minor bugs regarding Python 2.6 and a missing Python-tk package were fixed.

                    Release Notes: This release features an improved interface for handling tools, processes, and tasks. The current settings are now automatically stored in the user's home directory. The "material allowance" setting is now supported for all calculations, tool definitions can be exported to EMC2, model scaling is easier than before, and missing dependencies are reported in a graphical dialog (especially useful for Windows users). Various minor bugs were fixed as well. A fancy logo was added.
