excellent - I don't know if you got the update to AXIS to display the F code properly too.
Though I need help (Phill help please lol) to make the code display area one line deeper.
If the f code for threading is 4 decimals it pushes the text down too far.

Thanks for the feedback

Where does AXIS disply the F code, I don't see it on a standard sim.

Edit. I saw it on the MDI tab, if that is what you mean and want an extra line:

share/axis/tcl/axis.tcl 1256
text $_tabs_mdi.gcodes \
	-height 2 \
	-width 40 \
	-undo 0 \
	-wrap word
height is the height of the box in lines.

Fix for new feed signal in Gmoccapy is something like this:
-   real_feed = float(self.stat.settings[1] * self.stat.feedrate)
+  real_feed = float(self.stat.current_fcode * self.stat.feedrate)

I have had a quick look at how hard it would be to merge statetags to master.

It looks doable. I wonder if it's a better idea?

If anyone wants to try statetags on top of current master

Andy, great work. If I install this on my machine, what am I looking for? Does it publish additional hal pins for the tags?
I'll give it a go later today

I actually have no idea.

I _think_ that it mainly keeps the "status" stuff up to date.
I think ideally Chris' extra HAL pin would be added too. And maybe a few more.

I assume that if statetags was ready it would have been merged long ago.
So updating statetags to master branch is great -(and you probably should just merge it into linuxcnc's branch of statetags), it means someone needs to work on it till it works - it's a big change - i don't understand it and the people that do are not working on linuxcnc.

Also ya do we know the scope functionality of state tags?
It's been vaguely talked about for so long i don't know anymore.

My attempt was to fix a small problem so i could try to understand a bit about what i was doing, but I agree statetags is the goal - I personally just can't make that jump, i'm not that good to just look at small bits of the code and know what it is doing or if it is wrong code.

If it was completely up to me, i think I would:
-merge my work into 2.8 so at least the feedcode works for people in the next release.
- release 2.8 so people have a functional up to date version.

- start merging the unstable things like statetags and work on it - slightly broken master is a good motivator (obviously we are trying to avoid long breaks)

but at this point I can't even get people to answer the maillist for how to release so we are in pretty bad shape.
People are working on linuxcnc (I see Dewey commiting interesting things for instance) but there is no forward movement in this project as a whole.

Eventually I'll just do what I think is best at the moment and if people don;t like it they can come take this lead :)

I agree with this.
Is there a list of things that need completion before 2.8 can be released that some of us could maybe help with.
