RobotFlow 0.2.3 Released

RobotFlow is a mobile robotics tookit based on the FlowDesigner project. FlowDesigner is a data-flow oriented architecture, similar to Simulink (Matlab) or Labview that is free (LGPL) and versatile. The visual programming interface provided in the FlowDesigner project will help people to better visualize & understand what is really happening in the robot's control loops, sensors, actuators, by using graphical probes and debugging in real-time.
New in this release :
- Added MARIE blocks that can serialize / unserialize MARIE objects in the XML format. RobotFlow is now part of MARIE (http://marie.sourceforge.net) and provides and efficient and simple way of connecting multiple applications with already provided RobotFlow AI / DSP / Logic blocks. Please see showcase project on MARIE's web site.
- JPEG LOAD and SAVE works properly. The idea is to provide a simple way to transmit JPEG images over the network (raw data) and restore the image from the data at the other end using jpeglib. More work to be done on this in the next release.
- Created LoadImage block that load any gdk_pixbuf supported format.
- Now linking with external Player 1.5. Unit changes to still be able to use degrees and mm / sec. Next version should comply with Player units.
- Now able to build RPMS!
