Changing versions names

My version naming system was stupid.

4.2.2rc2 now becomes 4.2rc2

4.2.3beta now becomes 4.3beta

The new system follows this rules :


or a.bd

a : major changes
b : features added
c : bugs fixed

d :

- rc : release candidate
- beta<date> : daily build

File virtual telescope rewritten

Former file virtual telescope was really ugly. The newest one is much cleaner. Absolute/relative pixel shifts should still be checked.

Windows resizing tips

Using this app with my eeepc901 netbook, I use the nice ubuntu remix launchpad, but maximus always maximise my windows. To avoid the qastrocam windows resizing, use gconf-editor, and focus on maximus in apps. You will find an exclusion list. Just add the qastrocam main window name to the list.

help needed

My version (source and deb packages) works well on my computer (eeepc901 for outdoor imaging, with an spc900nc SC1.5 serialmod and ubuntu 9.04), but what about yours ? Could someone please help me for beta tests ?

vers. 4.2.2beta

- I wanted to analyse my mount with PEAS, so I added a new "virtual" telescope in the qastrocam tracking module, in order to produce IRIS like tracking files. Use "-t file" and "-dt <filename>, it while produce two files <$$$$x.dat> and <$$$$y.dat>, like IRIS.
