This is what I have planned for future versions of GlassCalc, helpfully sorted into vague time periods. If an item is listed with 100% done or Fixed, those changes will appear in the next version I release.
Bugs to Fix
- Rework internals to separate parser from UI thread – 15% done
- Button/command to turn entire history list into copyable text
- Smarter detection of changes in extensions.ini
- Decide what to do with expressions like
cos(x)/2x. The latter is most likely intended to be
cos(x)/(2*x), but the former could mean either
1/(2*x). GlassCalc currently parses as
cos(x)/2*x. Maybe allow simple fractional coefficients (as in
(1/2)*x) with a toggle to turn it off?
- Immediate evaluation of simple expressions (a la Soulver)
- Selectively export functions
- Import/export custom constants/scale factors
- Create a place on this site where custom function/constant/scale factor packages can be shared
- Switch to a different parser library that doesn’t rely on COM (such as muParser). This would make GlassCalc a lot easier to install and it should run as a portable app too. I’m still not sure whether I want to do this or continue porting MTParser to C#.
- mod operator for modulus (in addition to %)
- Add buttons to delete functions/variables to the function/variable lists.
- Ability to ignore a constant/scale factor defined in global extensions.ini
- Ability to minimize to system tray icon and restore with a hotkey
- Move configuration settings from config to ini files to improve startup performance
- Move function reference to another window and provide filters (show only trig functions, etc.)
- Add option to filter function reference as things are typed in the input box
- Normalize function prototypes in function list
- Show function bodies as typed (not as interpreted)
- Add a Scale Factors panel under Constants
- Port MTParser to C# – 20% done?
- Support for higher precision math (requires C# port of MTParser)
