new release fixes 2 important bugs

JMyron and WebCamXtra version 0023 have been released. Two bug fixes you'll be interested in:

- The infamous DIRECTOR MEMORY LEAK is fixed. Please help me test this and report back if it works or doesn't work with your project!

- motion tracking works again. the retinaImage was looking psychedelic since version 2.0 and now it's fixed. That means all motion detection should work. Set adaptivity to higher than 0, and then watch the globs as they sense color change.... read more

JMyron 0022 - show stopper bug fixed

After a couple reports of crashing, and MaxOh pointing out that none of the globs were sticking around, I poked around in the CVS to find out that Parmendil's optimizations from way back had broken the glob tracking system! Okay, Myron has been rolled back and here is version 2.2 for you.

new version of JMyron, also works with Processing 0070 - 0090. please check it out and tell me if it works or doesn't work. particularly if it doesn't, but i still wanna know if it's working.... read more

JMyron Updated for Processing 0085 - 0090

A slightly new version of WebcamXtra / Myron is out, and it works with Processing 0085 through 0090 ! Please download this and try it out, and tell me if you are having trouble getting it to run. I have only actually tested it on 0090.

On that note, Java users who use Eclipse will now be able to properly import JMyron because it's in its own namespace. Hooray!
