I haven't had any reason to use CAD software for a while now,
and I have completed my primary goal of
creating custom toolbars and custom menus for LibreCAD.
The work I have done for 2.2.0 regarding the command-line
(among other things) is complete.
You can read about the command-line changes here:
http://wiki.librecad.org/index.php/User_Interface

You can check the 2.2.0 milestone's closed issues for more information.
https://github.com/LibreCAD/LibreCAD/milestones

I became a developer when I realized a work force didn't exist
to implement the changes I was suggesting.
This is mostly a "do it yourself" project.

Before contributing I highly recommend understanding the license.
https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html

I was inspired to work on LibreCAD for over a year,
but that wave of inspiration came to its inevitable end.
My interests are very different now;
and I haven't done any programming in a few months.

I might comment on issues I have some connection with;
however, I don't recommend waiting for me to react.

You can contact me if you have any questions about a change I've made.

Ravas,

we are all volunteers and that's perfectly fine.
LibreCAD is not company backed-up and I feel it's ok if there is no release for XX time, or a person that jump's in the second (or day or week) a new pull request comes in, a bug comes in.

I also don't think (but would love to hear from anybody) that there is a requirement from the user's that use our software for free that we do something in XX amouth of time and work on new features all the time.
Obviously, I would love to see LibreCAD beeing used and picked up by company X release new features AND this company makes money of it's support, but unfortunately that's not the case.

I also don't think that anybody is expecting you to work on issues and/or to respond to items within a timeframe.

As you know, people come and go.. Some people stay and are silent towards the community and other people are active for a period of time than disappear. Some people stay forever

From my heart I do want to thank you for your support and I always found that you have helped LibreCAD beeing a better CAD tool.

All the best,
R. van Twisk
