I actually closed the bug. It is resolved in version 6.0.0 and higher. However, for a long time a broken version of scilab was distributed that had a non working xcos. At least working with hierarchy wasn't possible.
I still think that mixing the new jogl2 namespace functionality upstream is a good idea. 2018-02-22 10:39 GMT-03:00 Johan Wesselink <johanwesselin...@gmail.com>: > > Hi, > > I would like to introduce myself. > > On this moment iI have some spare time to commit to SciLAB. > > I used it extensively and was very pleased when version 6.0 arrived. > However, this version has some very annoying bugs.
