> GoPro may be acquired by the Chinese company Xiaomi. What would that mean to Autopano?

This will mean ... Kolor software soon will be banned by Donald Trump as illegal fake software

No, not really. Just kidding.

Some time ago, when there were rumours that Kolor would be a part of Gopro, i really thought "hey, great, chances, chances, chances for faster and better product releases, more manpower in the development department". But what really happened has been ... nearly nothing. Product releases have been slowed painfully, and new features ... zero.

Autopano and Panotour still give me the best workflow, in some niche areas other products are good and excellent helpers, as ptgui for stitching and pano2vr for streetview.

I am hoping that if the Xiaomi rumours will be true, my old beloved autopano and panotour will have faster, more, feature rich product cycles. But my fears go the other direction.

Absolutely nothing. This is just an announcement!
