The latest release of RepRapFirmware now supports conditions and loops in GCode files and macro files. This is particularly useful in complex systems such as tool changers. It also has applications in simpler systems; for example, repeating auto delta calibration or true bed levelling until the calibration deviation is below the desired threshold, or cancelling the print job if that can't be achieved.

See [duet3d.dozuki.com] for the specification.

That's a really cool feature!
Your homing example is very interesting and might come in handy in my latest printer build (IDEX printer with 3 independent Z-axis lead-screws). looking forward to play around with this.

Thank you very much for implementing this and generally for all your excellent work on RepRapFirmware!
