Since I released 6.4.13 to SF Victor submutted two files updates, also many new files in video-api. So if it is not too late I would rather use 6.4.14 - currently in CVS only

Sorry - CVS version does not work for me. Green auroexposure button has no effect when clicking, it does not let me change exposure manually too.

With Konqueror - does not work at all (tried 3.3, 3.4.0), and buttons/text are way out of the frame (like with IE)

Other - seems new preview image is acquired automatically. If page is just open on several computers it leads to "Camera in USE" pretty soon. And what if it is over the WAN?

Unfortunately Konqueror did not work before that change too.

Periodical status data acquisition (not the whole preview image) is probably OK. But we need to think how we can prevent many pages left open on different computers requesting info from the cameras. It is also not good from the privacy point of view to make computers "call home".

So I suggest to have periodic status update off by default, turn it on with the streamer or with explicit contol and have some button flashing for each status update so the user can see that page is accessing camera.

This note is more about web interface in genearal. If the cameras is used on the computer where it worked with earler version of the software the included files (*.js, *.css) will likely not be reloaded (this is why I did not use an external *.js file in earlier web interface). These files may be used from cache, not reloaded from the camera even when reload button is pressed.

My suggestion - in the html file use some template like "_model_revision_number_" in the file names, like "some_javascript_model_revision_number_.js" and make Makefile to replace it with actual model+rev number during "make install". And sure install actual files to include with model+rev in their names. In that case CVS will not be polluted with muiltiple files, list of source files - will no need to be modified but each revision will have individual include filenames so browser will not be confused when the software is updated. Problem can be with the top index.html - it is loaded before the first image is acquired and the camera clock is still in the 1970. For that reason that index.html (as it is a redirect) can add ?time_in_ms to the actual file it opens - similar to the last argument of the ccam.cgi - then browser cache will be avoided.

Is the ISO ready? Can I burn it?
