Что сделать

Эти перечни задумывались как напоминания для разработчиков о незаконченных проектах. Кроме того, здесь ещё список пожеланий, содержащий пожелания пользователей насчёт новых возможностей. Новые разработчики также могут поискать здесь проекты, над которыми им было бы интересно поработать.

Задачи для не-программистов см. в списке задач.

Стратегия развития pcb находится на отдельной странице.

Стратегия выпусков следующих версий

В данном разделе должен быть перечень только тех вопросов, которые считаются настолько важными, что выпуск не будет производиться до тех пор, пока они не будут решены. Если новая возможность воплощена или устранена ошибка, удалите, пожалуйста, её из списка или переместите в список следующего подходящего выпуска.

Todo («что нужно было сделать») для прошлых выпусков можно посмотреть на странице истории .

1.10 (стабильная версия)

Longer term upgrades desired for specific tools

  • Libgeda:
    • Enable handling of .sch files with symbols having some (but not all) pins promoted onto the .sch file. This will enable pin-swapping via backannotation from PCB. (Architectural change)
    • Merge per-page netlisting from gnetlist (or re-write if necessary). (Bounty)
  • Gschem:
    • Create a button in gschem which will invoke gsch2pcb to create a netlist file ready for PCB to read in. (Bounty, once PCB is modified to support an action file.)
    • Enable hierarchical bus support. (Architectural change)
    • Make gschemrc variables settable from within gschem using a “settings” pull-down menu item (new). The idea is to update the contents of the gschemrc or gafrc files using pull-down menus, and write the changes out to the correct RC files. (Bounty)
    • Improve symbol library to handle very large symbol collections better.
    • Now the SELECTION is a GedaList and we can get “changed” signals, make more dialogs non-modal:
      • Single attribute editor
      • Text properties
      • Line width and type
      • Fill type
      • Edit slot
      • Edit color
      • Text size (Sets size for new text, so doesn't rely on the selection anyway)
    • Enable --help flag. (Currently supports -h only). Consider using GTK's mechanism for this. (Bounty)
    • Support for embedding LaTeX maths to be rendered in text.
      • This could be output only, or preview bitmaps could be generated and cached by calling LaTeX, dvips and ps2epsi.
      • Would we add a new type of object for this, or allow attaching a “latex=1” attribute to the text object its self?
  • Gnetlist:
    • Enable --help flag. Do other gEDA/gaf programs recognize this flag? (Bounty)
  • Gattrib:
    • Get printing working. (Bounty)
    • Enable attachment of attributes to nets. (Architectural)
    • Consider using GTK's mechanism to display --help flag text. (Bounty)
  • Garchive:
    • Incorporate guile so that it reads RC files using the same mechanism as the rest of gEDA/gaf.
  • CD Installer:
    • Change it so that the user is presented a pick-list at the beginning of the install, instead of blindly installing everything. (Architectural)
    • Make the new CD Installer install Ales's binary distribution. (Bounty)
  • Refdes_renum:
    • Doesn’t currently work properly with slotted parts (it gives new refdes numbers to slotted parts). Fix it so it recognizes slotted parts and assigns refdes appropriately. (Bounty)
  • PCB
    • Put various commands which are only accessible via a :command(foo) into the top menu. Newbies want to see what actions are in the menus since that way they know what PCB can do. (Bounty on a per-action basis)
    • Provide a toolbar of buttons for common actions. (Bounty)
    • Make the difference between editing footprints and PCBs much more obvious. If you're in footprint editing mode, then perhaps make the background color change. (Architectural)
    • Create a “file → save” dialog window. In the dialog window, provide a pull-down giving the option to save as a PCB (default) or as a footprint. (Bounty)

Ideas for new tools or gEDA Suite-wide enhancements

  • Develop scheme for backward annotation of changes from PCB to gschem. Requires modifications to libgeda to support, e.g. pin promotion from .sym file to .sch file (enabling pin swapping). (Architectural)
  • Create a Gerber → .pcb conversion tool. Result is metal layer or footprint editable by PCB. This might be a Perl script. (Bounty)
  • Implement lockfiles between gattrib and gschem. (Bounty)

Code cleanup and refactoring

  • Remove use of non GList linked lists. This is very invasive work, but allows much code cleanup where mixtures of the old and GList methods were available.
  • Remove unused variables and functions from various structures. Unused may also include “used”, but ineffective.
  • Remove back-exports to libgeda of global function pointers from gschem and other libgeda “clients”. These aren't portable.
  • Clean up / produce generic API interfaces to act on an object of any type, or lists of objects.
  • Convert functions used within one “.c” file, and not useful for public API into static functions, removing from prototype.h.
