macam 0.8.4 released

• Added support for SQ905 based cameras (0x2770:0x9120), although compressed images are not right yet
• Added rudimentary support for QuickCam VC, image gain issues need to be fixed
• Added support in the driver and application for downloading movies (without sound) [works with SQ905 cameras]
• Upgraded the Xcode project to use native targets (necessary for universal binaries)
• Universal binaries are now produced, although they probably don't work yet, testing reports would be welcome
• Added the "-lSystem" flag when linking so that hopefully code will work on 10.1 and 10.2, again reports are welcome... read more
