On this page you can get a "To Do" list and a tasks pool of the project. The "To Do" list is not connected to the time ranks, but it is structured by subsystems. The "To Do" list and pool are provided to represent the general development picture, and to post notes for the developers' examination. The developers can append, apply and note the tasks for themselves.

  • Expand dimension of the internal time from microseconds and up to nanoseconds. Previously append support for PicoScope 2000.
  • Work out for developing, using, integration to solutions, concept of the OpenSCADA project support. Expand the community by targeting on the implementation control of:
    • tasks: tasks pool, fund and fundraising; developers register, ranks for participate into the tasks.
    • solutions: register a task of the solution implementation (by consumer), set demands to the task and performer, set the price limit; each performer propose self price; consumer select a performer. Commission from the order price to the project is 10%.

  • Adapt to the software platform QNX:
+ get for some QNX platform representation => due to the deep closing, but yet using OpenSource, this OS is not allowed in free and there was bought a used hardware based on BlackBerry, that is "BB PlayBook", that is not actual already due to the main supporting resources are DEAD;
- start an adaption subproject and place here the preadaption achievements from Sergey Doroshka;
- build the pure console program;
- build the full-featured Qt-GUI program on Photon.
  • Adapt to the software platform MS Windows®:
+ adapt for the modules linking with the OpenSCADA core library directly, for DLL restrictions;
- start an adaption subproject;
- describe the original start of OpenSCADA as a Linux program on MS Windows, using WSL;
- initiate the OpenSCADA building for the MS Windows environment.

6 Subsystem DB

... for Vision also ...
- move the runtime requests to VCAEngine in the asynchronous mode;
 !> has a problem with processing recursive events into event(), in the case of the mouse release events loss in processing the pressing mouse event.
