CHANGES SINCE 2011.4.0
The lensfun library for reading and writing lens parameters from/to database has now been integrated into Hugin.

Hugin's CPFind. It is the only control point generator endorsed by Hugin.
Third-party generators may be compatible with the plug-in architecture.

KNOWN ISSUES AND WORKAROUNDS
Panosphere Overview window seperated from the content
There is a known problem building Hugin with CMake 2.8.5rc2.
Workaround: Upgrade to a newer CMake version.
Mac OS X:
- Mac OS X Tiger (10.4) is no longer supported.
- The PPC platform is no longer supported.
- The OpenMP enabled enblend is now compatible on Mac OS X Lion (10.7).
- The cmake compilation of Hugin is currently broken due to the fact that
the boost library on OS X is currently at version 1.50 and boost versions => 1.48
conflict with a number of Mac OS X macros (from AssertMacros.h). This can
not be disabled as WxWindows for Mac (a.k.a. WxMac) needs these macros.
An XCode build, where a specific boost (<=1.46) can be specified, is
possible. The 2012.0 OSX bundle will be based on an XCode build with boost
An updated list of issues deemed to be critical, including discussions
and workarounds is in the issue tracker.
Thanks to all the contributors to this release and members of the hugin-ptx
mailing list, too many to mention here.
