      <h1>Hugin-2014.0.0 Release Notes</h1>
      <p>Hugin is more than just a panorama stitcher.</p>
      <!-- Note for proof readers/editors: Although this document is ostensibly a list of new features, it gets copied and distributed to suprising locations, so as a result most readers are unlikely to have used Hugin before. I.e. the audience of this document is somebody who has an idea what a panorama stitcher might be, has never heard of Hugin, but is interested in discovering cool new software. -->
      <h2>Changes Since 2013.0.0</h2>
<p>
<ul>
   <li> inherit many of the libpano improvements (of version 2.9.19)</li>
   <li>the translation plane variables Tpy and Tpp have been added to the GUI (better support for translation parameters, e.g. for nadir images. A pano with translation parameters can now be rotated)</li>
   <li>improvement of the GPU remapping code (bug fixes in the glue code, added some missing GPU transformations. Now fisheye lenses are supported by GPU code as well)</li>
   <li>better support for line control point in Control points tab (it still requires that the same image is displayed left and right for full features, but also better support for line control points above several images)</li>
   <li>obsolete programs matchpoint, nona_gui and PTBatcher have been removed</li>
   <li>outdated translations have been removed from the default install</li>
   <li>initialize the colour balance values during loading with EXIF values (this information is only stored and decoded by some cameras (mainly models by Panasonic, Pentax, Olympus, Nikon))</li>
   <li>improved the assistant</li>
   <li>allow customization of exiftool command used to copy metadata to output images</li>
</ul>
<h3>New command line tools for CLI processing:</h3>
<ul>
   <li>pto_mask: manipulate mask in project file</li>
   <li>pto_template: apply template to project file</li>
   <li>pto_move: move or copy project files with all associated images</li>
</ul></p>


<h3>Other Improvements</h3>
<ul>
     <li>Many more improvements and bug fixes.</li>
</ul>
<h2>Languages</h2>
<p>Most of the translations have been updated for this release.</p>
<!-- Note for translators: the rest is mostly the same as the previous release announcement -->
<h2>Upgrading</h2>
<p>Upgrading from previous versions of Hugin should be seamless. If you do
have problems with old settings, these can be reset in the Preferences
window by clicking 'Load defaults'.</p>
<p><em>It is strongly recommended to set the default control point
detector to Hugin's CPFind</em>. It is the only control point
generator endorsed by Hugin. Third-party generators may be compatible
with the plug-in architecture.</p>
<h2>Compiling</h2>
<p>Users compiling from source refer to the list of <a href="http://wiki.panotools.org/Development_of_Open_Source_tools#Dependencies">dependencies</a>
and the platform-specific <a href="http://wiki.panotools.org/Development_of_Open_Source_tools#Build_your_Own_Test_Builds">build
processes</a> described in the wiki. More information in the README
and INSTALL_cmake files in the tarball.</p>
<h2>Download</h2>
<p>Hugin can be found at <a href="http://hugin.sourceforge.net/">SourceForge</a>
and <a href="https://launchpad.net/hugin">Launchpad</a>.</p>
 <p>User communities produce executables for their respective platforms.
Executables are likely to be announced within a few days of this tarball
release on the <a href="http://groups.google.com/group/hugin-ptx">mailing
list</a> and added to the <a href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/hugin/files/hugin/">download
 section</a> on SourceForge.</p>
<h2>Known Issues and Workarounds</h2>
<p>There is a known problem building Hugin with CMake 2.8.5rc2.<br />
Workaround: Upgrade to a newer CMake version.</p>
<p>An updated list of issues deemed to be critical, including discussions
and workarounds, is in the <a href="https://bugs.launchpad.net/hugin/+bugs?search=Search&amp;field.importance=Critical">Issues Tracker</a>.</p>
<h2>Thanks</h2>
<p>Thanks to all the contributors to this release and members of the <a href="http://groups.google.com/group/hugin-ptx">hugin-ptx</a>
        mailing list, too many to mention here.</p>
