Release numbering

The Elphel software is released in several forms:

  1. - Live DVD including firmware released at the time LiveDVD was created and software to update the camera firmware to the later release using downloaded firmware image.
  2. - Source tarball on SourceForge
  3. - Binary images + installation scripts
  4. - Source code in CVS.

The software releases on SourceForge (source tarballs, binary images) have 3 dot-separated release numbers, like elphel353-7.1.5.tar.gz for the source code or image353-2.10-7.1.5.tar.gz for binary images to be copied to the camera flash memory

The most recent (and definitely "unstable") software is available on CVS at Sourceforge. The software available only from the CVS has 4 dot-separated numbers, the thirst three matching the last version released as a tarball distribution on SourceForge.

elphel353-8.0.RC4

Added RSS feed for Elphel CVS at Sourceforge - you can use news reader to track development progress.

Mostly bug fixes in

  1. camvc - less unneeded requests to the camera, faster response, works with Konqueror, not just FF
  2. autoexposure/white balance - added error integrating/threshold to white balance

elphel353-8.0.RC3

  1. Multiple bug fixes
  2. "camera" tab in the camvc works now, including autoexposure/white balance (only some parameters are controlled here, others - through parsedit.php
  3. cirbuf/exif navigation functionality is also supported
  4. ccamftp.php need minor change in camvc - enable/disable using parameter bit DAEMON_EN_CCAMFTP (not ENABLE= in config file as now)
  5. known issue - 3MPix sensor does not work yet

elphel353-8.0.RC2

elphel353-8.0.RC1 - released at Sourceforge

Finally - a working release based on redesigned camera drivers (Doxygen output)


elphel353-7.2.0.pre1 (open, pre-alpha)

This is not a release, just a collection of files (drivers do not yet match FPGA and FPGA code is probably not yet operational). The new CVS tree (elphel353-7.2) is started, but please do not use it yet.

elphel353-7.1.5.1

  1. added reflash.php script that allows initiating camera firmware update from the NFS server.
  2. bug fix in the streamer (multicast addresses)
  3. fixed build problems for the systems where 'dash' is used as shell (i.e. Ubuntu and derivatives) - the shell scripts/Makefiles used to build Elphel software now specify '#!/bin/bash' instead of just '#!/bin/sh', so you do not need to change links in your Ubuntu system.

elphel353-7.1.5

  1. Bug fixes, including Known_bugs that lead to the 1x1 pixel ("no image available") images being returned instead of the real ones.
  2. Initial Support for Elphel Model 354-11 camera and precise synchronization ("locking") of multiple Model 353 cameras making them useful for the stereo imaging

elphel353-7.1.3

Changed power control in 363 cameras, reduced peak power to 12.5W so cameras work with standard 48V DC midspan power supplies (15.4W)
