    Default Luminosity 2.0 - Help me out, be hypercritical!

    Hey all. This is my first post here, so I thought it'd be wise to introduce myself before I dive straight into my post. I'm a laserist and programmer, though most of my free time gets spent on the latter. I'm the programmer responsible for the laser warning label generator (that you may or may not actually find useful, but it was fun to write), other calculation-type tools, and (most importantly) Luminosity. It's the LPM logging software I custom-wrote to ship with the Kenometer. At time time of its writing, I was just beginning to learn object-oriented programming (and C#) and didn't really take advantage of the OO paradigm. Now, it's time for a 2.0 version - which I've started from scratch to address the expandability issues of the first release.

    Here's a screenshot I took last night (please forgive me for having a pointer, it's the first thing I could put my hands on and is rather convenient for testing):

    http://www.safelasers.org/Luminosity...0.10.07.02.png

    As you can see, it looks way better than it used to - it now supports multiple datasets on a graph, everything is resizable (except while rendering a graph), will export secure datasets, and generally acts more professional.

    Here's where I need your help. For those of you who used Luminosity, what sucked (you won't offend me, believe me - I think 1.0 is terrible now that I've worked with 2.0 )? What did you hate? What did you like and want to return for the second release? For those of you who haven't used it, what do you want to see in LPM interface software? Throw me your far-fetched pipe-dream ideas; I'm at the point in development where I can work basically anything in, and can begin to roll in those huge, far-fetched ideas.

    Hit me. Impossible is nothing.

    The latest version of 1.0 (I solved your issues, by the way), can be downloaded in the release thread on LPF.

    2.0 isn't anywhere near release status.

    Hey twhite828...
    welcome to the Forum...

    Correct me if I'm wrong.... but I understood that Luminosity only worked
    with and was exclusively designed for the Kenometer PRO and USB LPMs....

    Or is Luminosity now available for other Data Streaming LPMs that are not
    sold by Kenom...

    That is correct. When I had originally approached the community about purpose-built LPM logging software, Kenom expressed an immediate interest in getting on board with the project. We negotiated an exclusive license for the first release of Luminosity, and I agreed to handle support of the software.

    Backwards compatibility will likely remain, but Luminosity 2.0 is essentially a standalone project. I restarted from scratch.

    Technically - it must be licensed.
