Release 3.6 Live

This release had a few twists and turns. While laying the ground-work for 4-axis milling, the Carvera showed up and I took a detour into mobile improvements and laser pathing. So it ended up being a mix of CAM + Laser and mobile updates with a major update to CAM animation.

The 4th-axis work is now slated for 3.7, which might be slightly more disruptive. I didn’t want to hold these improvements while that stabilized.
