This thread is a follow-on from this thread relating to software development: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=5668
There is a frustration amongst users who read this forum that there's no feedback regarding all the new feature requests and bug reports that are posted on this forum. This has led to doubts that the software is being developed....and JasonCS has posted on the above thread that indeed the software is still being developed, and that feature requests we post here are read and taken into account, etc. With one question hopefully answered to the satisfaction of most, there is still an issue with a perception that requests we post here are being ignored.
One possible solution would be for the developers to provide some form of regular feedback.....say on a weekly basis.....on the posting in both of the user feedback sections. To minimise the effect on other work, I don't think we would be wanting anyone to engage in a conversation on the relative merit of each request, but to simply provide in the form of a comment their initial thoughts on the perceived benefits, the likely ease or scale of effort to code the request, etc.
Let's have something.....not total silence as we have at the moment. I'd prefer someone to say "Sorry, that's not the sort of change we would want to include." or "A good idea, but it would affect the slicing speed." or "What a good idea. We may add that to our list of changes to consider for inclusion in a future release." rather than there be a total silence....which currently is giving the feeling that what we, the loyal users, are doing to try and help the software improve is a waste of our time! That;s certainly how I feel!
Then....as I think happened with v3.0....it would be nice to see a comment on each request that actually made it into the release....and possibly a note on any requests that are not likely to be dealt with.
Hopefully, ohers will be able to refine and develop my initial idea.....
