   This package provides an implementation of the SIFT algorithm and a set of
 utilities to utilize the algorithm to match two or more images. As output, a
 number of control points are created, which specify one and the same image
-location in two images. The output is created as project file for the hugin
-panorama stitching software, which is available at http://hugin.sf.net/

 Installation
 ============
 
-Unix/Linux
-----------
+The only dependencies are:
+libpano13, libpng, libtiff, libjpeg, zlib and libxml2
 
-You need a .NET Framework implementation, under Unix/Linux I use Mono.
+autopano-sift-C uses a standard cmake build system:
 
-    - Mono (http://www.go-mono.com/) 1.0 or later
-    - GTK# (http://gtk-sharp.sf.net/) 1.0 or later.
-
-    (if you want to build it yourself)
-    - GNU make, GNU bash.
+  cmake .
+  make
+  make install
 
 
-Sorry about introducing this dependancy-bloat, but I hope in the future every
-GNU/Linux system will have a .NET Framework installed.  Gentoo, Ubuntu and
-Debian/unstable have the packages already available. For Debian you need
-(mono, mono-jit, libgtk-cil).
-
-NOTE: You do not need to recompile binaries from the source code, as binaries
-      are already included in this release tarball.
-
-
-You can choose between two installation methods, where the first is
-recommended:
-
- a) Installation from the binaries:
-
-	Copy all the files in the bin/ directory to a favorite place, for example
-	/usr/local/bin/, /opt/autopano-sift/ or any place you like. Either this
-	directory has to be within the PATH variable, or you have to modify the
-    autopano-complete.sh script's AUTOPANO_PATH variable.
-
- b) Installation from the sources:
-
-	After ensuring you have all the dependencies, run "make clean all" in the
-    src/ directory, then install it the same ways as the binaries.
-
-
-Windows
--------
-
-Both the command line utilities, a native Windows GUI and a simple VBS wrapper
-script for drag-and-drop functionality are available.  The Gtk# GUI might also
-be usable as the Gtk# Windows port improves.  Please use the supplied Windows
-installer, which also includes a VBS script you can use with autopano-sift.
-
-For build instructions, see the BUILD_WINDOWS.txt file.
-
-
-Usage
-=====
-
-CLI
----
-
-For using this program you should have some basic experience with the hugin
-stitching program, available at http://hugin.sourceforge.net/.
-
-The most basic use is:
-
-    ./autopano-complete.sh -o /tmp/hugin.pto image1.jpg image2.jpg
-
-Then load the hugin.pto file into hugin and adjust the field-of-view.
-Afterwards proceed as normal (optimizing and panorama creation).
-
-
-GUI
----
-
-The GUI is not developed right now, so its a bit outdated. It does work
-though.)
-
-You can also use the GUI by invoking:
-
-    ./autopanog.exe
-
