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
With that in mind, I have a few questions:
- Who is involved with QT GUI development for gnuradio?
- 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.
- 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!
