Main changes

Fixes in 3.0 stable channel

Since the stable release, we getting some new reports about some issue found in some cases. We continue to stabilize everything in these rare cases and we are pretty confident about having now a really stable version. Among the fixes, some of them needs some explaination:
- It seems that the way we balanced the memory reserved between rendering and input image caching was not optimal in some configuration. We added more memory reserved for pictures displaying and reduced a little for rendering.
- Local optimization was broken since early in beta stable. It didn't create any problem as general optimization was still working, but we get it back. You should see nice speed up in optimization stage.
- This version has also some updated translation and one new translation: Polish.

Crash reporter

Most recurring reports have been fixed. Some crashes are not easy to prevent and depend on the computer:
- Try to update you graphics drivers. Many reports are still showing crashs in graphics drivers and not in autopano.
- Always use the 64bit version of autopano ( when the OS allow it ) for using big pictures or for rendering large panoramas.

The troubleshooting page for autopano support has been updated with all the solutions found. Have a look there it you have still recurring crashes with the software http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/action/view/Autopano_Solutions

We will continue to work on this stable channel. Nevertheless, the work on next engine has already been started. Autopano Engine v3.1 is all about color correction engine improvement.

In my opinion this is the worst release of Autopano so far - I find new bugs every time I use it. I am outraged that Kolor think it is OK to stop fixing bugs in previous versions so that they can charge people money for the "new improved" version. If there was any other program I could use I would use it immediately and never try Autopano ever again.

Now I read that Kolor have already started work on a new engine for version 3.1. Oh great - you are going to devote resources to something new before you have fixed what you have just released? How much are you going to charge us for that?

You are telling us that your code is so bad that you don't understand it well enough to prevent crashes? I've spent something like €330 on AP and its "upgrades" - that's a lot of money for a program that contains majopr bugs. Why don't you spend money on people who know how to write programs and test them instead of hiding behind what I see as pathetic statements about "stable releases" and "improvements"?

Aeriscera:

One of the bugs you experienced has been fixed in version 3.0.3, which was released just a few days after version 3.0.2.
We are still correcting other bugs and some of them are not easy to reproduce because they don't only depend on the software but also on the specific hardware configuration of the user.

As you may know, we are far from having an expensive upgrade policy: the previous paid upgrade was version 2.0, it was released more than 3 years ago. And all updates of version 3 will also be free until version 4 is released.
We know how much a bug can be frustrating for you and we do our best to correct them, but some of them need a lot of testing and patience. Kolor developers are competent people who work everyday to make Autopano better. Again, we know you're frustrated but please remain respectful while the bugs are being solved.
