LinuxCNC 2.8.2 has been released.This is mainly a bugfix release, though it also adds a new HAL component (“sendkeys”) for creating input device events from HAL pins.All users are encouraged to update.In addition there is a new RTAI kernel based on 4.19.195. This comes with a new version of RTAI 5.3. Both should be automatically installed with the 2.8.2-rt version of LinuxCNC. If you are using the ISO install or know that you are running the preempt-rt kernel this need not concern you.Thanks to the following contributors:
