SynApps 6-1 Release is now available

You can download it as a tarball from https://epics.anl.gov/bcda/synApps/tar/synApps_6_1.tar.gz or download it from github using the assemble_synApps script (https://raw.githubusercontent.com/EPICS-synApps/support/master/assemble_synApps.sh).

Aside from keeping all the modules up-to-date, there isn't a whole lot new with the distribution. Everything is still targeted at EPICS base 3.15 with the distribution confirmed to build and run on linux-x86_64, vxWorks (tested using vxWorks 6.9.4.2), win32-x86 (both static and dynamic), and windows-x64 (both static and dynamic). EPICS base 3.14 and 7.0 also saw some limited testing on linux, everything should build, but there's no guarantee that there aren't unforeseen interactions that haven't been found yet.

The top-level make system has had changes, however. Module dependencies are now resolved using each module's RELEASE file. This means that adding in your own support modules alongside the rest of synApps is as easy as dropping in the module and just putting its name in the RELEASE and makefile lists. As well, there are four new make commands at the top level; all_ui, all_adl, all_opi, and all_edl. These copy all of their respective gui screens out from the modules and into a top level all_* folder so only one folder needs to be added to the path for whatever gui system you use.


Suggestions, bug reports, and code submissions are greatly appreciated and if you have any, feel free to join the synApps collaboration at  https://github.com/epics-modules for the individual modules and https://github.com/EPICS-synApps for the supporting synApps framework.
