If you have specific requests for new features in PTB-3, or for improvements to existing features, then this is your place. Create yourself an user account, edit this page, write down your request, together with full name and affiliation. It's helpful if you provide an e-mail address as well in case we have questions.
We won't promise or feel obliged to fullfil any of your requests, but it helps to at least know what you are missing and have these wishes stored in a common place to see if there are any patterns or clusters of related wishes.
Requests that are trivial to fulfill, of great common interest or nearly completely useless but technically sexy have higher chances to get accepted ;-)
- Support for Asynchronous requests and timestamping added to the pnet library.
- Being able to have procedural shaders for plaid stimuli
- Support the ColorCalII (supported already as generic psych hardware) in the Psych calibration routines like MeasMonXYZ.
- Would it be possible to add an x- (and possibly also y-) offset paramter to DrawFormattedText for centered text? This would be useful when one wants to draw a block of text that is center-justified horizontally (and maybe vertically), but at an arbitrary location on screen. As far as I know, there is no easy way to draw a paragraph of center-justified text at any location other than the actual center of the screen without basically copying the code from DrawFormattedText. It's a very easy change, just one thing to add on a couple of lines, and then the code to handle default values for the additional input argument(s). I made a hacked version of DrawFormattedText to do this; if anyone would like it (to roll into PTB proper or for their own purposes), just email matthew DOT r DOT johnson AT gmail DOT com.
