This section summarizes important new features and changes since Electric (1.6.x series). For a complete list of changes including bug fixes, see the 1.7.x changelists.
prosilica_driver is now a separate stack, so that users of AVT/Prosilica cameras no longer have to install drivers for irrelevant hardware. The umbrella stack camera_drivers depends on it.
- Compatibility fixes to work with more models, in particular the GC750C. Cameras which do not support binning or auto-gain are handled gracefully.
- Better support for stereo rigs.
- New reconfigurable parameters to better control gain and exposure.
