As of TP1, a script once loaded into the runtime, does reflect changes to the file it was loaded from only after a restart of the whole of QCAD. This adds a considerable time overhead to developing scripts. Therefore I want to suggest a reload mechanism, that works kind of like the one known from a web browser.
As there is no clear separation between users custom scripts and ribbonsoft supplied scripts, checking the modification time for every access to any script might prove a performance hit.
Possibly a user script can be written, to invalidate another certain script and have the runtime reload it from file? I could add that to my menu.
Or as some magic, that can be written to “MyAction.init()”?

Reason for closing: Implemented
Additional comments about closing: Can be achieved by the script itself (see comment)
