Software v0.3?
« on: October 16, 2017, 05:01:20 PM »
I'm bored, so thought I'd harass David. :) Any idea when the next software rev might be coming, and what might be included?

The next version is being worked on right now. Features in this coming version are:
  • Remembering settings across reboots (most common request!)
  • Fix for a potential cold-temperature RAM issue (seen as horizontal bands of colored pixels)
  • Autonomous operation with automatic save-after-trigger and automatic recording start after save
  • Maybe HDMI

If HDMI doesn't get into this release, it will be in the next.

Ethernet will be coming in a subsequent update, it's a big project, the entire low-level camera control needs to be broken out of the user application and made to work over network.

Also, the open source release is imminent, finally have a working build environment that doesn't have any of the NDA code in it! Hopefully within the week.

David,

How complicated would it be to allow the user to select what resolutions we want in the drop-down menu?

Maybe we could have a few "user preset" slots in the drop-down menu? Or would this entail too many |UI changes, adding buttons etc for this revision?

That is quite easy, you could do it now manually in fact. If you put the OS SD card into a Linux system, add your resolutions, one per line, in /opt/camera/resolutions

resolutions is just a text file, the default content is:

Code: [Select]
1280x1024
1280x720
1280x512
1280x360
1280x240
1280x120
1280x96
1024x768
1024x576
800x600
800x480
640x480
640x360
640x240
640x120
640x96

Awesome news! I'm really curious to take a look under the hood.
