Snowgoer, for the record, I've only ever used RIP and compile from source. I've always used master ever since 2.8 became the new master. If I want to run a different branch be it 2.8 or an experimental branch, I just check it out, make clean and recompile.

The only nuisance is having to run the rip-environment script

I've never bothered building the debs to get stuff installed in the menus typing linuxcnc -l will run the last config you've used and I have two desktop shortcuts that sets up the rip-environment and then opens Linuxcnc. One opens the chooser and the other has the -l switch to opens the last config used.

But most of the time I open it from a terminal window.

More recently, I've been hacking the interpreter hard to add more features so when I'm done and I work out how to get it over onto my own git, I can give you test projects galore!

Yea, I remember finding RIP a huge PITA a few months ago, but I've gotten used to it, and I think I prefer it now. It seems super useful for testing new stuff anyways.

Oh, new features? I'm intrigued. Can you elaborate on the "interpreter" this is a new piece of lingo for me...?

venture into the dark side of /src/emc/rs274ngc and be afraid!
I've been extending the functionality of state tags that recently made its way into master branch to add features that I think are good for plasma, then Andy made me add a heading for tangential knife alignment, then I thought of some more stuff and then... some docs and it goes on.
