There are things already going on "under the surface" right now, and others
that would depend on everyone's input in order to start them or not. The
roadmap will clearly depend on the combination of both aspects. I will give
some details shortly about the current or next-to-be-started efforts, but the
feedback part is important too, so here is the call for discussion once
posted to this list:
I propose that we start discussing along the following lines, going into
deeper detail as needed,
- Drivers: Now that we have a deeply integrated port of RTDM, what's next?
Field busses and other industrial gizmos anyone?
That's an interesting avenue for all our machine control oriented realtime
applications. But this avenue is full of incomplete or non-free
specifications and interfaces...
- New skins: Any new colors for the "chameleon"?
"Perfect POSIX" is, to me, more important than new skins. "Perfect" means,
among other things, that the interference problem with the Posix thread
library (libraries) under Linux is solved.
