Release date of version 17.x
« on: October 31, 2017, 03:03:29 pm »
I am looking forward to the video gagdet. Does anybody know when the new version is released?

I do not want to rush, but I would be happy to have more information than "when it is ready" ...

Video gadget is now merged to the development 'next' branch.

LibrePilot-16.09+r522-gd9cce5e_i686.exe  https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5d_9OcqQj8BOGZmaFF5RnVUck0

It seems you can get involved in testing it and giving feedback, or just using "next" to give feedback on other issues.
You can also sort the remaining issues https://librepilot.atlassian.net/projects/LP/versions/10100/tab/release-report-warnings and find something for yourself on which think you could help.
Some of these might be relatively simple, might not even need coding. Just try picking something you can handle. Fork git repository and make a branch, push it to your fork and make PR (Pull-up request) so it can be reviewed and merged with main repo.

I think steps on contributing are described on wiki. If it's bigger contribution or you keep contributing you get reward as being listed amongst contributors I think. Not sure exact rules though. I've been listed for porting/reimplementing some feature for searching UAV objects in the UAV-browser, I learned a bit Qt5 by doing this :)

Yeah, I have had some ideas for PRs, but I hadn't got the time to create a built environment. Maybe next holidays...
