    Good morning, and congratulations for your project!
    I own a 650D and I'm wondering if there's the possibility to set up a "Touch Focus" function, where you touch the point to focus on the screen and the machine focuses it.
    It already does it but it shots a photo after focusing. I don't want that it shots the photo immediately  :(
    Anyway, you are doing an amazing work, I've seen it working on a 5D  ;D

Turn off "touch shutter" and it will just focus on selected area.

One note - I have a bug in my 650D and wondering if any of you see it - I disable "touch shutter" but it keeps re-enabling itself.
I will be shooting stills and touching the screen to move the focus box and it will shoot a pic.
Or, in video mode, I touch the screen and it takes a still shot.
I then have to go into the menu and disable touch shutter again.
Getting annoying and I am watching for a release of new firmware from Canon, hoping they fix this.
I can't believe it is happening only my camera, I would have to think that it has to be all 650D's.
Anyone else see this?

"SLAP!!!" going down and then "SLAP!!!" going up?

Agreed - a true mirror lockup would be great - I think this is how it used to work on my film Nikon 8008s.
I was at a veterans event today and knew my T4i was "slapping" too loud from the back where I was shooting from. Wanted to make sure I didn't miss a good shot of a flag raising and had it in continuous mode. Not a good thing - was way too loud and obnoxious. I would hate to have to get a mirrorless just for that reason.

While following this thread and waiting for a release, i have come across a small prob with my t4i that I was wondering if anybody else sees. The firmware setting to DISABLE touch shutter always self-enables. I think it has something to do when I change modes from M to HDR, it seems to reset the touch shutter.
Anybody else see this problem? Not my imagination as I frequently have to go back into menu and set to DISABLE.
Might lead to ML fixing a prob with core T4i firmware.

 I have no idea if it's possible or if it's a reasonable idea, but I wish I could swipe the touchscreen with my thumb as my eye is in the viewfinder, ...

Interesting - the weak link I find in the 650D/t4i user interface is having to hold the aperture button down on the back of the camera to change aperture in Manual mode, so i kinda agree with your thinking here. It's a rub-your-head-pat-your-stomach move to adjust aperture.

Thanks to the ML folks for keeping up the great work. While we lie patiently on the sidelines, here, I have a question about features of ML on other cameras, perhaps the 600D/T3i.  One feature I am looking for is a real mirror lockup to quiet the camera down for photographing wildlife or during meetings. Is that a feature in ML for other cameras? The way mirror lockup works on the T4i is that it locks the mirror up temporarily until you release the shutter, to eliminate camera shake during imaging. But as soon as the image is made on the sensor, the mirror returns to the down position - quite loud.

FYI - I am tracking this thread closely, having my T4i for about a month, now.
Will try the ML firmware this eve and let you'all know how it goes.
Thanks for the dedication to pull this through, wish I could contribute $$ directly.
