The Prusa3D fork of Slic3r is nearing a big new release (1.42.0) and
that stream of development has made it into the beta phase. While they
didn't bump the version much from 1.41.3, this new version is
significantly different because it jettisons the last of the Perl code
and has an updated interface. It also adds support for Prusa's new MSLA
printer, the SL1.
I have the package building and the end result seems to work relatively
well on my F29 system. I've been able to plate and slice some models
without difficulty. However, there's plenty of cleanup to do and I
haven't dealt with the pile of bundled libraries at all. I do know that
the license tag is quite wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's also wrong in
the current Fedora release.
Also of interest is that the software much prefers to build with wxGTK3
3.1. Of course, we only have 3.0 in Fedora.
I think they've renamed the settings directory, and to something
different than we were renaming it to. It's probably better to just
stick to the upstream naming now even if this means that users may have
to reconfigure or rename.
The work is visible in my fork:
