I recently began using gnuradio and GRC with a pair of USRPs.
It’s my understanding that plans are underway to ultimately remove WX in
v3.9 as a GUI option from gnuradio, and replace it with QT. It’s also my
understanding that QT GUI development is underway in future versions of
gnuradio. I’m interested in attempting to help develop for gnuradio and
have forked a copy of the source from github.
With that in mind, I have a few questions: 1. Who is involved with QT GUI development for gnuradio? 2. What future improvements, especially functionality related, are planned for gnuradio QT? All I have been able to find in the 3.8.0 roadmap is that grc will "introduce a QT version of GRC" (what does that mean?) and that gr-qtgui will be switching examples to use gr-qtgui instead of gr-wxgui. Functionality I'm most interested in includes X/Y mode for the QT GUI Time Sink and the ability to pause the output of the Time, Frequency, and Waterfall sinks (as is available via the "Stop" button in the WX counterparts. 3. In looking over the WX and QT GUI options, I personally prefer the layout and functionality of the WX GUI components (specifically, the instrumentation options). Are there any plans to attempt to replicate the layout and options of the WX components? (Perhaps the old WX layout style and functionality are being abandoned for good reason; if that's the case, if anybody could clarify that for me or point me in the right direction I would be most appreciative.) Thanks everyone, and I look forward to hearing from you!
