A new distribution (tarball) is now available at the python page.
It include a better handling of poles placement for MIMO systems (a new wrapper derived from scicoslab), a driver to start the generated tasks as non superuser, allowing to change some linux capabilities (RAWIO, NICE, LOCK) and modifications in the CAN files to use the USB peaks dongle instead of the EPP one.
Using python blockdiag is now possible to display the topology of the control system. At present, the block diagram should be still generated using a textual description.
