In this release we include a new library (libcapture) that provides a common interface to several video capture APIs and can be used as part of an Augmented Reality setup. It currently connects to the has the following access modes:
USB and 1394-Firewire webcameras (Through DirectX and vidCapture API)
USB, 1394 and miniDV web/cameras (Through dsVideo API)
1394 firewire webcameras (CarnegieMellon API)

The library is simple and clean enough to include your own API of choice.
Besides the release of this new library there also have been several fixes and cleanups to the sources and configuration files.
