release date 05/05/2016

New Features

  • New selection mechanism of images for delete and batch process
  • New walkaround (50/50) capture mode
  • Improved support for compatibility with apps
  • Improved responsive design of the web pages. Improve coding of the web pages to pass all via osc calls.
  • New reduced-size OS based on yocto build (in firmware code, that implies change of communication in server from msgpack to json, change of media management).
  • New upgrade mechanism with dual boot in place. New intermediate level upgrade (u-boot from eMMC, linux boot from SD card).
  • Add possibility to choose to save to eMMC or SD card (this feature is coded but as not been made available via UI for users for now)

Bug fixes

  • on board batch stitching only stitches at resolution 8Kx4K
  • reset the LEDs to blue after a SD card is inserted if they had turned red previously if trying to capture with no SD card in.

  • Fix for initial memory leak in multiple stitching processing.
