(The rc 1 correspond to changeset 48cb11a23351 in our repository, which is also tagged as 2016.2rc1).
Changes since beta 1
* More fixes for Mac OS build
* Updated translations
* More fixes for initialization of fast preview window
* Cpfind: Improved finding of cp for float/double images by applying logarithm mapping to internal images
Changes since 2016.0.0
Allow reading of image positions from Papywizard XML files: First add
the image to a new project and then select File, Import settings from
Papywizard XML file... This will read the lens settings, the image
positions and also, if applicable, the bracket settings. After this, the
usual workflow is to run cpfind with --prealigned switch and then
geocpset to connect orphanded images.
* The internal blender and
verdandi got the possibility to blend seams as alternative to current
hard seam: For each seam the color of second image is adapted to the
match the color of the first seam. For this blender, the blender order
changes according to the overlap. The blending starts with the exposure
anchor and blends then all overlapping images. This blending mode is not
suited if there are bigger misalignments or bigger parallax errors.
The display of the control point error (after optimizing and in fast
preview window) and the control point list window can now limited to
take only control points in active images into account (menu Edit,
Optimize only active images, connected with the setting on the optimizer
* Improvements to mask tab in Hugin (edit crop of all images
of the same lens at once) and find panorama dialog in PTBatcherGUI
(remove images from found panoramas, split found panorama into two).
* Several improvements for Mac OS.
* Fixes several issues with fast preview window which could result in random crashes (uninitialized variables, memory leaks).
from previous versions of Hugin should be seamless. If you do have
problems with old settings, these can be reset in the Preferences window
by clicking 'Load defaults'.
