Release 1.8.2 a

1. My co-developer Paul has finished coding the Arc Assistant, or what we are now calling the G-Code Visual Editor! This feature is available in the Virtual Laser Machine (VLM) tab and you can now write g-code on the left side in the G-Code Editor -- or -- using your mouse to click and drag Lines and Arcs on the right side in the VLM canvas itself. As you visually do this in the VLM canvas, the g-code of that object is dynamically updated on the left side in the editor itself.

Watch the video tutorial Paul made here on my Youtube Channel:

2. Huge speed up of toolpath operations on large dxf files.

3. Bug fixes and code clean up in various areas.
