The lack of updates on the update is a bit concerning. June is now a long time ago, and we're even nearing the end of the year, so version 5 should hopefully be close to ready now.
Could the community please have some info on what is going on, and what to expect?
Our team continues to make significant progress and we are still on track to release V5 later this year. We will be posting more development updates that will include additional information on pricing and new features as we get closer to the release date.
I'm aware this might not be the right place to ask for this, but can you PLEASE give us some small snippets on weither a couple totally trivial things that's downright missing in 4.1.2 will come in 5.0 ?
1: Enabling / implementation of firmware retraction setting.
2: "One click" ironing of some sort.
3: A better and "hollow" purge tower that wastes less filament, for layers not including tool changes (like what Filaswitch generates).
4: Filament specific g.code.
5: And last but not least, a COMPLETE and updated list of placeholders, and where they can be used (and a little description on what they do). So that we can make better use of the functionalities that's actually exisiting already. Simply removing un-needed guesswork!
It's almost 1 full year since 5.0 was teased, and we haven't gotten ANY tangible info yet, only what i can best describe as propaganda.
Don't think it's to much to ask for at this point. More and more users are looking into other slicers due to the share lack of community and customer info given.
