Folks,

 

New releases of the following areaDetector modules are now available. 

 

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

ADPilatus

R2-5 (28-January-2018)

* Added support for the ResetModulePower command in camserver 7.9.0 and higher.

  This is important for CdTe detectors where the high-voltage needs to be cycled from

  time to time, particularly after strong saturation of pixels.

* Fixed the parsing of the camserver "Version" command for new versions of camserver

  where it no longer contains the string "tvx-".

* Fixed the parsing of the camserver "Thread" command to read the temperature and

  relative humdidity.  Recent camserver versions do not always return "Channel 0:",

  and this prevented it from working correctly.

* Fixed medm adl files to improve the autoconversion to other display manager files.

* Added op/Makefile to automatically convert adl files to edl, ui, and opi files.

* Updated the edl, ui, and opi autoconvert directories to contain the conversions

  from the most recent adl files.

 

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

ADAndor

R2-7 (January 31, 2018)

----

* Added support for Frame Transfer mode.  Thanks to Michael Dunning for this.

* Added support for setting the Vertical Shift Period. Thanks to Michael Dunning for this.

* Upgraded the Andor SDK version used to 2.102.3 on Linux. Thanks to Hinko Kocevar for this.

* Fixed medm adl files to improve the autoconversion to other display manager files.

* Added op/Makefile to automatically convert adl files to edl, ui, and opi files.

* Updated the edl, ui, and opi autoconvert directories to contain the conversions

  from the most recent adl files.

 

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

ADPerkinElmer

R2-7 (31-January-2018)

----

* Removed calls to release lock around calls to doCallbacksGenericPointer.

* Fixed medm adl files to improve the autoconversion to other display manager files.

* Added op/Makefile to automatically convert adl files to edl, ui, and opi files.

* Updated the edl, ui, and opi autoconvert directories to contain the conversions

  from the most recent adl files.

 

 

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

ADLightField

R2-5 (30-January-2018)

---

* Added support for creating the directories for data and background files.

* LightField.template

  - Change LFGratingWavelength records to LFGratingWL because names were too long for links.

  - Disable PINI for LFGratingWL because it will crash LightField if Step and Glue is enabled.

* Added support for Step And Glue to collect spectra that require changing gratings automatically.

  There are records to enable Step And Glue and to set the starting and ending wavelength.

* Added support for selecting the Entrance Port of the spectrometer.

* Fixed medm adl files to improve the autoconversion to other display manager files.

* Added op/Makefile to automatically convert adl files to edl, ui, and opi files.

* Updated the edl, ui, and opi autoconvert directories to contain the conversions

  from the most recent adl files.

* Updated the DLL files to those from LightField 6.4.

* Changed CONFIG_SITE to disable GraphicsMagick with LightField because it is incompatible for some reason.

 

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

ADPointGrey

R2-6 (29-January-2017)

----

* Removed the SerialNumber, FirmwareVersion, and SoftwareVersion parameters and records,

  since the equivalents are now in ADDriver.h and ADBase.template.

* Removed code that released the lock around the calls to doCallbacksGenericPointer.

  This was not needed and could cause problems.

* Fixed medm adl files to improve the autoconversion to other display manager files.

* Added op/Makefile to automatically convert adl files to edl, ui, and opi files.

* Updated the edl, ui, and opi autoconvert directories to contain the conversions

  from the most recent adl files.

 

 

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

ADSimDetector

R2-7 (January 28, 2018)

=========

* Fixed simDetectorNoIOCApp/src/Makefile so it handles external locations of HDF, SZIP, and XML2 correctly.

* Add simDetectorApp/op/Makefile to automatically convert adl files to edl, ui, and opi.

* Fixed medm adl files to improve the autoconversion to other display manager files.

* Added op/Makefile to automatically convert adl files to edl, ui, and opi files.

* Updated the edl, ui, and opi autoconvert directories to contain the conversions

  from the most recent adl files.

 

 

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

ADProsilica

R2-4 (31-January-2018)

----

* Removed calls to release lock around calls to doCallbacksGenericPointer.

* Fixed medm adl files to improve the autoconversion to other display manager files.

* Added op/Makefile to automatically convert adl files to edl, ui, and opi files.

* Updated the edl, ui, and opi autoconvert directories to contain the conversions

  from the most recent adl files.
