Changelog between this version and the RC4 is pretty short : we fixed many bugs and improved a little the overall detectivity.
All the team here want to thank everybody for the awesome help you gave us, either by doing bug report, submitting pictures sets that can help to improve the product, or just by giving us some feedback on how they are using the interface or explaining some design issue they got. A big thanks to the translator team too, and to [bo] and TAF, moderator on the forum.
The future ?
We are currently compiling the linux version. It should be available soon. Then, we will spend some time on a big surprise... Stay tunned !
Our plan is to release for beginning of next year a 1.3.1 with some enhancements : Devplan The next big release will contain fisheye and orthographic projection.
I would love to download the new v1.3 but when I click on the appropriate link (www.autopano.net) then click on "Buy it now" then on "http://buy.kolor.com" then "Buy Autopano Pro 1 Windows" I get the Kolorshop page that says "your basket is empty." No place to download v1.3 except the demo version. How do I get the full version?
I've re-run a couple of panos from RC4 to 1.30. There seems to be a slight speed improvement in the smartblend portion and thank you for eliminating the "fisheye" check. I had been blocked by that warning when using a modified "generic" camera with sunpac internals. This beta program and the prolific feedback is working really well for this group.
The stitching power of APP 1.3 is great.I could stitch photo sets in minutes that where completely misaligned in PTGui. But what i´m really missing is alpha channel handling. When can we expext that to be true ? Pleeeazzze, don´t let me wait too long.
