GroG's picture

I've setup the Travis-CI build file with the ability to post releases.
It will only push a release into github if someone pushes a tag.

You can add a tag through eclipse by right-clicking on the project -> Team -> Advanced -> Tag

Current build of 1.0.87 was pushed in this way.

Motors are getting a large overhaul. There now is mapping for power levels, and encoders.  What this means is that the power input can be configured to be any range as well as the power output (similar to Servos).

Next is getting an Android service which is capable of getting data from every sensor a phone might have, and interfacing with every system level resource (such as voice) that a Android smartphone might have ..

RemoteAdapter Connected

Playing with connecting MRL Instances together - if you look you can see one is running on a windows box and the other is running on a raspi.  Together they are STRONGER ! :)

On cool improvement is you have "context" with the runtime tab - previously you could not "install" or upgrade through the gui - but now you can - the runtimes represent 2 different views of MRL installed on different machines/platforms
