    LinuxCNC 2.8.0 is released

    I am pleased (and a little relieved) to announce the release of LinuxCNC v2.8.0

    This release has been a long time in development. The main new
    feature, the separation of joints (actuators) and (cartesian) axes has
    been in development since around 2010.

    This is one of the biggest updates to LinuxCNC ever. The changelog can
    be viewed here:
    https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc...bian/changelog

    Highlights include:

    * Joints-axes separation - mainly obvious as much better support for
    gantries and their homing but also for robots and any other
    non-cartesian system
    * Reverse-run - negative feed-overide will now reverse along the
    previous path - introduced for wire spark eroders, but I am sure you
    will find other uses.
    * Multiple spindle support - up to 9 spindles
    * Tool table expanded to 1000 tools
    * Packages available for Raspberry Pi 4.
    * External offsets - G-code is not the only way to move things.
    * QTvcp: New QT-based VCP framework
    * QTdragon, QTlathe, QTtouchy, QTscreen - new GUIs based on QTVP
    * Silverdragon: New gscreen based GUI
    * plasmac: New full-featured Plasma cutter controller - with
    integrated THC and a whole lot more.
    * Massively expanded and improved Spanish translations of
    documentation and manpages
    * New Chinese translation of the "??" (Getting Started) documentation.

    Installable packages are available for Ubuntu Precise and Debians
    Wheezy, Stretch, Jessie and Buster (including Raspbian). Support for
    Ubuntu Lucid has ended.
    At the moment most supported platforms only work with the preempt-rt kernels.
    There is an experimental 64-bit RTAI kernel for those needing it. We
    hope to mainline this soon, but help would be appreciated.

    More details of how to update here:

    For new installations, or to test-run the new version and OS on your
    existing hardware without committing to an OS upgrade use the ISO
    images and process described here:
