Actually I dont have a feedback from Fons yet, or maybe my spamfilters 
killed it. Speed optimization is my first thing because I believe to see 
some obvious stuff to improve but time will tell.
Second is an annoying dependency to something depricated QTLists or so 
which at least made me necessary to google 10 minutes but I could 
imagine that this turns off some newbies who dare to 'make' it and than 
bang, no AMS for you. Autotools would be great too, its so simple to use 
it but I have to look up how to do it, maybe its simple.
Than some improvements on the gui can be started. Thanks for the points 
people mentionend already. An additional annoying thing is the right 
click in the empty patch which brings up the color menue. And some 
controls on objects are positionend suboptimal. For example the scope 
has the trigger settings on another tab so you cant adjust while looking 
on the screen and the results. Either I missed something or its just 
suboptimal. These things cant be a big deal, but I would start the 
optimizations first and if they really improve it I would declare it as 
version 1.8.8, just to make it clear, AMS is back (although it never was 
gone), wouldnt it be great to have a 1.8.8 for LAC?
