The long awaited beta version is finally here.

You may notice we jumped from beta 7 to beta 9. The reason is we developped an internal beta 8 and were not able to release it, and so much was added afterward we decided to let the internal beta version number. Hope this won't be too confusing.

So here we go.

* Import/Export:

** No limits in export resolution

** No limits in panorama size import:
*** Support: KRO, PSD/PSB (no layers), TIFF (most of them)
*** Unsupported: multi-layer PSD/PSB, TIFF tiled, non interlaced TIFF

** only necessary panorama are exported

** direct access to last exported directory (in Edit menu)

** drag and drop zone for quick export : pictures dragged in it are opened and exported as a singular flash file in the same folder. Maximum resolution is used.

** extended save as : save the project PROJECT.apt and copy all necessary files to a folder PROJECTsources/ at the same place

* Edition:

** Full resolution hotspot editor

** View crop

** Warning when FOV information are unknown

** Image FOV are proportional to image dimensions.

** Use of maxpixelzoom to set maximum zoom to resolution of the picture.

** visit introduction tab in Project properties:

** introduction image

** little planet introduction for 360x180 panoramas

** three 3D preview quality :
*** high (2048x2048 texture) <- require a lot of computations, quite slow
*** medium(1024x1024 texture)
*** low(512x512 texture) <- the one used in former APT version

**map and thumbnail can be :
*** open/close when the visit loads
*** closed when a hotspot action is performed

** Replace min/max fov information by zoom concept

** links between panorama display:
*** when a hotspot is selected, only the link owned by it is displayed
*** when a pano is selected, all the links owned by it are displayed

*System preferences manager :

**Take advantage of multiprocessor architecture in cube export and 3D preview

**temp directory (multiple)

**memory use

**number of CPU used


* Some changes in HTML templates (valid HTML pages + default css)
* krpano


* Thumbnails keep aspect ratio and no more overlap, whatever is the screen aspect-ratio
* Change place of Templates to a non Administrator place
* Flashing map spot is now sync when changing pano from other means than the map itself

A good idea would be to show us a tour done with beta9 having many thumbnails images, maps, showing maps, little planet introduction etc. which shows the use of new features & its usage. This will get us started.

old files .apt (from APT beta 7) not open in beta 9. why? with previous versions (6 to 7) was not such trouble

EDIT When APT (beta9) is open and I select open project (.apt) everything is ok
but when I select the file in finder and I mark open in program or dublecklick .apt, project is not open and show me error (system is osx 10.5.8)

Please post problems on separate threads. I won't answer any new problems/request on this post which goal is to announce changelog.

Thank you.

However :
miniplanet : you should be krpano-registred and first pano must be 360x180 fov
iPhone/iPad : will certainly be integrated.
