I can't access the CVS until March. I will post intermediate versions now and then but the CVS itself won't be updated.
I started a series of trackers to... track our progress towards version 2.0.
The port is fully working except for the bus-reset part (==hotplug). Those who wish to test that will have to grab the CVS of the Version_2_0 branch of libdc1394 (available on SF) and the CVS of coriander too (main branch)
The CVS now contains the Gnome2 port. Gnome 1.4 is not supported anymore.
That was fast...
The CVS contains a lot of bugs. Please don't use it at this time.
Just have a look at the download page...
The configure scripts do not report that libdc must be updated to its latest CVS. The scripts have been corrected in the CVS.
A first implementation of a bus-reset handler allows hotplugging in coriander. Coherency and services running are maintained through the process. Grab the CVS!
I added a new video4linux service that uses vloopback to export video to V4L applications.
The current CVS is probably the most stable version of coriander, consequently I plan to move to 1.0 soon. There are still significant bugs with Format7 segfaults: these will be solved as soon as I get a camera for lent, early June.
On October 23, we have reached exactly 10.000 downloads! :-)
That means a lot of disapointed people, realizing uppon exec that Coriander is NOT for DV cameras... ;-)
There's been a lot of changes, both minor and major so it's a good time to synch all that.
This release still requires a CVS version of libdc1394. I prefer to post it anyway to avoid receivong tons-o-emails about the display color problems.
There was still some problems with color conversion. Everything should be OK now, please update from CVS.
There was a bug in version 0.22 in the color conversion functions. It has been corrected in CVS (28/01/02)
I improved the configure script, which notably failed to detect SDL on some machines. Happy CVS update!
Coriander is a GUI for IEEE-1394, IIDC-Compliant Digital Cameras. Control, save and stream video with one tool!
Just to keep the record of versions coherent, I thought I should send some news about 0.21 being released. ;-)
Version 0.21 will be posted soon. It will be the last to use Xv and GDK explicitely: later versions will use SDL instead. This should not be a big deal since SDL includes Xv and GDK was not working in multithreaded programs anyway.
Changes towards version 0.22 are on CVS.
Lots of Xmas presents:
- new layout
- SDL display
The SDL display will probably replace Xv in the future since SDL includes Xv support. GDK display still hangs Coriander.
Happy new year, etc... ;-)
Real streaming has been added to Coriander! Due to problems with RH7.2, I could not test it. Try it and tell me what you think! :-) Sources are available in the CVS.
Please check the new 0.19b. It has a new layout, with less windows popping-everywhere-except-where-you-want-them.
Once you have decided which layout you prefer, go fill the survey and let us know about your opinion!
Note that 0.19 is based on latest CVS with just the GUI modified. The GUI changes are NOT in CVS (i.e. 0.19b is not committed to CVS).
I strongly recommend you update to the lates CVS sources. Release 0.19 had some serious flaws concerning multicam support. Keep reporting bugs!
A brand new release is out! Big changes: multithreading, image pipe, FTP fixed,...
Since 30% of the code has been changed, this version is a little bit beta. 4 days of work is not enough for very stable release...
BTW, I fixed my hard drive! Opened it in a clean room and removed a stupid air filter that blocked the head parking... So I'm back!
Coriander is a GUI for the total control of an IEEE-1394 Digital Camera complying with the IIDC Specifications (see http://www.1394ta.org\).
Big change from GTK threads to pthreads. More efficient, faster, no dead-locks with external trigger.
The same changes required for capture to disk/ftp will be done soon.
