These executables are then added to the download section on SourceForge at http://sourceforge.net/projects/hugin/files/hugin/ A number of users have built recent snapshots and executables are likely to be announced within a few days of this tarball release. Watch http://groups.google.com/group/hugin-ptx for the announcements of binary releases. If you don't see a binary for your platform it has most likely not been produced yet. Consider stepping up to the task. Instructions at http://wiki.panotools.org/Development_of_Open_Source_tools#Supported_Platforms Announce your build on http://groups.google.com/group/hugin-ptx CHANGES SINCE 2011.2.0 Hugin has got a vertical feature detection tool for automatic levelling of panoramas. Beside this also many bugs have fixed and many general improvements have been made. Vertical feature detection tool Often a panorama, created from several single photos, is not level. In this case the experienced user adds vertical and horizontal control points to level the panorama. With this release Hugin introduces a tool named /linefind/ which automatically detects vertical features in the photos such as the edges of buildings and windows, and assigns vertical control points to them. This makes it easier than before to level a panorama, in most cases it works without any intervention. Other Improvements * The Fast Preview window can now show composition guides such as Rule of Thirds and Golden ratio to support an easier composition of the final panorama. * The output of High Dynamic Range (HDR) images has been modified to prevent clipping of the exposure in EXR format images. The previous versions of Hugin outputted HDR images with absolute exposure values, now with this 2011.4.0 release, Hugin uses relative exposure values. This means that the output Exposure Value (EV) of the panorama, which can be set in the preview window, has an influence on the HDR output (as already for normal LDR images) and should be set to the medium exposure value of the images. If you set the output exposure value to zero, the old behavior is restored. * The batch processor PTBatcherGUI has been extended: o It is now possible to directly add unaligned projects to the assistant queue for aligning and control point generation. o Successfully stitched projects can be automatically removed from the queue, this makes the queue management easier. o If a project was successfully finished by the assistant, it can be automatically added to the stitching queue. This now allows for a fully automatic panorama creation workflow. * Many more improvements and bug fixes. UPGRADING Upgrading from previous versions of Hugin should be seamless. If you do have problems with old settings, these can be reset in the Preferences by clicking 'Load defaults'. It is strongly recommeded to set the default control point detector to Hugin's CPFind. It is the only control point generator endorsed by Hugin. Third-party generators may be compatible with the plug-in architecture. COMPILING Users compiling from source refer to the dependencies listed at http://wiki.panotools.org/Development_of_Open_Source_tools#Dependencies and the build processes listed at http://wiki.panotools.org/Development_of_Open_Source_tools#Build_your_Own_Test_Builds More information in the README and INSTALL_cmake files in the tarball. KNOWN ISSUES AND WORKAROUNDS Panosphere Overview window seperated from the content https://bugs.launchpad.net/hugin/+bug/726997 There is a known problem building Hugin with CMake 2.8.5rc2. Workaround: Upgrade to a newer CMake version. Mac OS X Users at Tiger and Lion: this version of Hugin contains an openMP enabled enblend and enfuse. These versions don't run on Tiger and currently not on Lion either. Please use the Tiger-compatible enblend and enfuse from the enblend-enfuse-4.0 folder in this dmg. You can specify alternative "external" enblend and enfuse from the Programs pane in the preferences after installing these special version by following the instructions in the README in the enblend-enfuse-4.0 folder. https://bugs.launchpad.net/hugin/+bug/814280 An updated list of issues deemed to be critical, including discussions and workarounds is in the issue tracker. https://bugs.launchpad.net/hugin/+bugs?search=Search&field.importance=Critical THANKS Thanks to all the contributors to this release and members of the hugin-ptx mailing list, too many to mention here.
