Folks,

 

New releases of the following areaDetector modules are now available.

 

ADGenICam R1-2

ADAravis R1-2

ADSpinnaker R2-1

ADVimba R1-1

 

This is from the release notes for ADGenICam:

**************************************

R1-2 (5-January-2020)

* Change GenICam integer feature support from 32-bit integers to 64-bit integers, which is what GenICam specifies.

  This requires asyn R4-38 which adds asynInt64 support for the ai, ao, longin, and longout records.

  With EPICS base 3.16.1 and later (including EPICS 7) int64in and int64 out records can be used for these features.

  On older versions of base ai and ao records must be used, which limits exact representation of the features to 52 bits.

 

* Changed makeDb.py to use int64in and int64out records for GenICam integer features if the --devInt64 option flag is used.

  If this option flag is not used then ai and ao records are used for these features.

  The --devInt64 flag is recommended if running on EPICS base 3.16.1 or later, including EPICS 7.

 

* Changed makeDb.py and makeAdl.py to use Python 3, rather than Python 2.

 

* Added addCamera.sh which is a simple script that runs both makeDb.py and makeAdl.py.

  It is run from the top-level ADGenICam directory and is passed the name of the camera,

  i.e. the name of the XML file without the path and without the .xml extension.

  It can be edited to enable or disable the --devInt64 flag for makeDb.py.

 

* Added updateCameras.sh which runs addCamera.sh for each camera in the xml directory.

  It builds the databases and medm screens for all of the cameras.

 

* Fixed problems with some EPICS PVs not getting their initial values from the camera correctly.

  This showed up the first time the IOC was run if autosave was being used, or every time the

  IOC was run if autosave was not being used.

 

* Added a number of new AVT cameras.

*********************************

 

 

This is from the release notes for ADAravis:

***********************************

R1-2 (January 5, 2020)

* Change arvFeature support for GenICam features from int (32-bit) to epicsInt64 (64-bit)

 

 

This is from the release notes for ADSpinnaker:

**************************************

R2-1 (January 5, 2020)

* Changed SPFeature to use epicsInt64 rather than int for GenICam integer feature functions.

  This allows access to the full 64 bit range of feature values, while previously it was limited to 32 bits.

* Added vendor SFNC_GenTL*.xml files which are required to be present in the lib directory on Linux.

 

 

This is from the release notes for ADVimba:

************************************

R1-1 (January 5, 2020)

* Change VimbaFeature support for GenICam features from int (32-bit) to epicsInt64 (64-bit)

* Fixed Doyxgen comment errors in the driver.
