Its probably posted before, but what are the plans regarding the KrPano player ? As I understand its a one-man project, and even though the player is great it has issues when it comes to keeping documentation up to date, and development is a bit slow.

Does Autopano support the development in any ways other than pushing licenses ?

Other than the Easypano products (if you want to consider them in the same category) I think that all the leading Flash pano players/viewers are one-man projects - Pano2VR, krpano and Flash Panorama Player/Flashificator.

I know that there is no extensive collection of 'how to' tutorials or videos, but I believe that the documentation for krpano is up to date isn't it? Albeit that one may have to dig through their forum a bit for documentation of more recent features.

But while krpano documentation is (I believe) complete it is somewhat 'spartan' in style and not particularly user-friendly for non-programmers. And that's why APT ,and now Panotour, are so useful for non-programmers, like me; enabling us easily to make use of the features of krpano most widely used to create virtual tours without any hand coding of XML command files.

Do you think krpano development is slow - it seems remarkably rapid to me. Quite on a par with, and I think more rapid than, the development of the other leading Flash pano players/viewers. I think krpano is now widely acknowledged to be the most capable and powerful of the Flash pano players/viewers.

Would you consider the development of the APT, and Panotour, GUI front-end/XML generators supportive of the development of the krpano Flash panorama player/viewer? I feel that it is because it makes that krpano technology far more accessible to a much larger user community of pano photographers.

Documentation is not up to date with releases, but updated info is shared in the forums. Krpano is feature rich, and as a one-man part-time project you might say that development is rapid. However the player needs a rewrite of code to work within flash applications, wich wont happen before 1.0.9, maybe sometime next year.

The player is excellent, and I just wish it could have some more commercial support to boost development and documentation. I`d be happy to pay more for the player to boost development, and I believe the player have commercial potential to be more than a one-man business.

As Kolor is extending the product line from only a stitcher to also hardware and VT software, it would be natural to collaborate on the viewer as well.

I totally agree but cannot comment yet.
