The Laos development meeting was a success! Held at Jaap's makerspace, ZB45 in Amsterdam, 7 people gathered and discussed their Laos related work and questions. Thomas Oster (Visicut) dialed in via Skype. The people from Bitlair presented their progress on (5!) self built large laser cutters, powered by Laos. Springuin offered to make a rev5 Laos board, that solves the hardware bugs that appeared in rev4. In addition, it was suggested to have an informal meeting during the Mini Makerfair in Enschede.
There is a LaOS meeting at ZB45, Amsterdam on oktober 26th
On sunday, august 11th, there will be a LaOS software hacking meetup in Fab Lab Amersfoort. See http://redmine.laoslaser.org/boards/1/topics/414

We are converting the software repository of our project from SVN (Subversion) to GIT and are hosting it on Github. Some links on the (new) redmine wiki may be incorrect for some time before all data is made available again. Also, the "old" wiki will not be updated with the new links and will be switched off in the near future. We would like you to check if any information is missing on the redmine wiki and copy it from the old one. Any help is appreciated.
The new URL for the repositories on GitHub will be https://github.com/laoslaser
The workshop will be given by Thomas Oster, the author of Visicut.
Visicut is lasercutting software with a WYSIWYG approach: you can move and scale objects on screen to fit them in the workspace of your laser. If you laser is equipped with a camera, you can even fit them on the object itself.
Visicut is platform- and laser-independent. It runs on Linux, Mac and Windows and it supports Epilog lasers, LaOS lasers and Lasersaurs. https://amedeo.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/groups/visicut/
