 * [[https://github.com/Smoothieware/Smoothieware/tree/feature/motor|Motor branch]]: Adds a new module that allows controlling DC motors with cw/ccw pins, and both homing and "tick count" movement. Useful for some automated tool changers, some powder printing wipers, and some pick and place head mechanisms. * [[https://github.com/Smoothieware/Smoothieware/tree/feature/motor|Motor branch]]: Adds a new module that allows controlling DC motors with cw/ccw pins, and both homing and "tick count" movement.

 +* [[https://github.com/Smoothieware/Smoothieware/pull/1476|Spindle reverse rotation]]: Adds M4 to the Spindle module to allow counter rotation.
 +* [[https://github.com/Smoothieware/Smoothieware/tree/feature/slaveswitch|Slave Switch]]: Allows a Switch module ( for a hobby servo typically ), to be controlled exactly like a normal axis ( like your Z axis say ), allowng for example hobby servos to be controlled exactly like normal axes, making them now about to do thins like homing or probing, which they couldn't before just as a switch.

 +=== Automated builds
 +
 +Some branches are automatically built for every new commit to the repository. 
 +
 +You can find these automatic builds below with different possible configurations, in particular the default build (for 3D printers), and the CNC build for different amounts of axes:

 +==== Motor branch
 +
 +This branch adds the "motor" module, that lets you control a DC motor, including and encoder and endstop feature, which is very helpful for DC-motor-controlled "carousel" systems in ATC CNC mills. If you have an ATC CNC mill and want to use this module, contact wolf.arthur@gmail.com for help setting it up/showing interest in documentation being written for it.
