Folks,

 

R2-1 of the areaDetector modules ADCore and ADBinaries are now available.

 

This is from the R2-1 release notes for ADCore:

 

- NDPluginFile  

Added new optional feature "LazyOpen" which, when enabled and in "Stream" mode, will defer file creation until the first frame arrives in the plugin. This removes the need to initialize the plugin with a dummy frame before starting capture.

 

- NDFileHDF5

Added support for defining the layout of the HDF5 file groups, datasets and attributes in an XML definition file. This was a collaboration between DLS and APS: Ulrik Pedersen, Alan Greer, Nicholas Schwarz, and Arthur Glowacki.

 

- NDFileTiff  

All NDArray attributes are now written as TIFF ASCII file tags, up to a maximum of 490 tags. Thanks to Matt Pearson for this.

 

- NDPluginOverlay

Added support for text overlays. Thanks to Keith Brister for this.

Added support for line width in rectangle and cross overlays. Thanks to Matt Pearson for this.

Fixed problem with DrawMode=XOR. This stopped working back in 2010 when color support was added.

 

- NDPluginTransform

Complete rewrite to greatly improve simplicity and efficiency. It now supports 8 transformations including the null transformation. Performance improved by a factor of 13 to 85 depending on the transformation. Thanks to Chris Roehrig for this.

 

- Added support for cygwin32 architecture. This did not work in R2-0.

 

 

This is from the R2-1 release notes for ADBinaries:

 

- Removed the Cygwin files from hdf5Support. libhdf5-devel is available as part of the Cygwin installation, and must now be installed rather than using files in ADBinaries.
