==June 6==
 
* fixed build issue
 
 
 
==June 7==

* Fixed few typo errors.
 
 
 
==June 8==
 
* Testing authentication
 
 
 
==June 9==
 
* Testing command-line options
 
 
 
==June 10-12==
 
* Learning about boost serialization library
 
 
 
==June 13==
 
* worked on Serialization implementatio outside OpenSCAD
 
 
 
==June 14==
 
* Created and placed connect and disconnect functionality in Main window and OpenSCAD.
 
 
 
==June 19==
 
* Created SCADSerializations.h file to store all serialization definitions
 
* created cache_entry structs in pcache.
 
 
 
==June 20==
 
* Worked with boost serialization in non-intrusive and split mode.
 
* checking it's compatibility in OpenSCAD env through small tests outside OpenSCAD.
 
 
 
==June 21==
 
* Completed writing all serialization definitions
 
 
 
==June 22==
 
* Completed Insert and get methods for CGAL and Geometry
 
 
 
==June 23==
 
* Resolved error with header files
 
* Added Guards around cache_enry serialization definitions
 
* Made some modifications to the smartCacheInsert method and encountered a critical error.
 
 
 
==June 24==
 
* Resolved problem related to serializing a pointer to derived class of boost serialization
 
* Ran 1st test on the complete project, it is partially successful
 
* Geometries are inserted perfectly into Redis but raised a segmentation fault which to be addressed.
 
 
 
==June 25==
 
* Geometry cache is inserting into Redis by preview action
 
* Segmentation fault of yesterday still prevails
 
 
 
==June 26==
 
* Testing has done in the case of CGAl Cache, CGAL is successfully inserting into Redis while previewing and crashes in case of Render action.
 
* Found the cause for segfault, in the process to resolve it
 
 
 
==June 27==
 
* Resolved the segfault by starting the connection on render thread while rendering. no change in the case of the preview.
 
 
 
==June 28==
 
* worked on crash due to lazy union
 
* identified the reason behind the crash.
 
 
 
==June 29==
 
* Analyzed the options for resolving the crash
 
 
 
==June 30==
 
* After discussing with mentor, we decided to continue working on the reconstruction of object from redis and try to resolve the issue in parallel.
 
 
 
=Phase 2=
 
 
 
==July 4-8==
 
* Resolved segmentation fault related to rendering on a different thread
 
 
 
==July 9-13==

==July 18==
 
* Completed the python test script and added it to tests/CMakList.txt
 
* failed to run the test on local machine
 
* test failed by running on travis and other tools most probably because of lack of hiredis lib
 
 
 
==July 19==
 
* fixed the problem discussed yesterday, by changing the args in add_cmd_test in tests/cmakelists.txt and changing the export path in python script.
 
* ran Travis along by starting Redis-server, macOS doesn't offer that service and no huge time difference is observed in the other two builds.
 
* need to add hiredis dependency to Travis check to complete.

* placed pcachepngtest_CSG into heavy config due to variety of reasons
 
* discussed with teepee about things that can be done
 
* started by adding clear Redis cache feature under the same design=>flush caches
 
* Added a new option for openscad for logging debug messages into an external file
