New forum and wiki members without LaOS lasers

[There is probably some way to get an automatic list of members but that will need a Redmine specialist, the current list is on the LAOS Laser project page.]

Proliferation of LaOS in the field

This table will give an idea of the growth of the project and general uptake. The operational numbers are estimates. Obviously a few of the earlier revisions may have been swapped out though (at least until rev 0.3) there have been no fundamental differences between them and field upgrades have been the norm. While the idea of an open laser controller has been in many minds for a long time it has taken until 2011 before this system got off the ground. Starting with just a small core group of developers the progress has been rapid and is spreading far and wide with increasing number of developers and user adoption.

[The production figures here are guesses based on blog entries with under reporting and not official as yet ]
