AForge.NET Framework 2.2.2 Release Notes


Version updates and fixes:

  • Fixed registered issues/requests:
    • Issue 173: 16bpp greyscale Masked Filter;
    • Issue 228: Resolution of Bitmap returned by BaseTransformationFilter.Apply is default;
    • Issue 241: HuePicker control it's not shade color;
    • Issue 244: Error in BlobCountingObjectsProcessing constructor;
    • Issue 245: Chart control crashes sample applications for AForge.Neuro;
    • Issue 246: special character (line 394) Video.VFW\win32.cs;
    • Issue 249: memory leak in ToManagedImage;
    • Issue 253: Problem with StDev that return NAN.
  • AForge.Imaging
    • Fixing AForge.Imaging.RGB class, so by default alpha channel is initialized with 255 (not transparent). Also updated HSL and YCbCr converters to set alpha to 255.
    • Added optimized version of Bayer filter, which is optimized for GRBG and BGGR patterns. Compared to generic version, the optimized version is about 10 times faster.
    • Adding try/catch block into UnmanagedImage.ToManagedImage(), so it handles possible exceptions and disposes managed image if it was already created.
    • Added ApplyMask image processing routine which applies mask to the specified image - keeps original pixels' values or sets them to 0 depending on corresponding value in the mask image/array.
    • Added MaskedFiler image processing routine, which allows to apply filter only the part of image specified by mask (0 values of mask tell that original pixel's value must be kept; otherwise - filtered).
    • Fixed flood fill classes to avoid conversion of pointer to Int32 so they should work fine on 64 bit systems.
    • Setting horizontal/vertical resolution of result image to the same values as source image has. The fix is applied to filters and image processing routines which accept Bitmap as parameter and return Bitmap as result. Obviously it can not copy DPI settings when image processing routine is applied to BitmapData or UnmanagedImage.
  • AForge.Math
    • Added fix to PointsCloud.FindQuadrilateralCorners() so it does provide 2 same corners in the case when both 3rd and 4th potential corners are very close to the line connecting 1st and 2nd corner.
    • Fixed bug in Matrix3x3 add operator, so it adds instead of doing subtraction (silly bug).
    • Adding addition and subtraction operators/methods for Matrix4x4.
    • Exposing FocalLength property for POSIT and CoplanarPosit classes so it could be set not only using constructor.
    • Added Histogram.TotalCount, which represents total count of values contributed to the histogram.
    • Marked both Histogram and ContinuousHistogram as serializable.
    • Changing algorithm for standard deviation calculation from single-pass to two-pass in order to minimize numerical errors.
  • AForge.Video
    • Fixed one of the constructors for BlobCountingObjectsProcessing so it passes its parameter (highlighting motion detection) further to another constructor.
    • Extended motion detectors to support 8 bpp grayscale image for motion detection.
  • AForge.Video.DirectShow
    • Moving VideoCaptureDeviceForm from Player sample application to AForge.Video.DirectShow namespace and beautifying it a bit. Now the form can be reused in other applications, which require selection of local video devices.
    • Updating COM interop definition for few interfaces of DirectShow (should get more stable in some cases).
  • AForge.Video.Ximea
    • Added additional camera parameters/enumerations for XIMEA cameras.
  • AForge.Controls
    • Updating some AForge.Controls classes to use AForge.Imaging instead of internal tools since this assembly references AForge.Imaging.dll anyway.
    • Fixing few bugs in Chart control: fixed cloning of data input data and fixed drawing of dots series type.
    • Added PlayingFinished event to VideoSourcePlayer, so users could track video stopping directly through the control without subscribing to video source events.
  • Tools
    • Adding AForge.DebuggerVisualizers tool assembly, which allows visualizing Image, BitmapData, UnmanagedBitmap and Histogram objects during debugging.
  • Samples
    • Fixing Motion Detector sample to perform safe update of UI (avoid cross thread access).
