With the latest updates we have released new documentation for the following standard tools:
If your PixInsight installation is up to date, you'll find these documents available on the Process Explorer window, as usual (to read them online you need a SVG/CSS3 capable browser such as Firefox 4 or higher, Safari >= 4, Opera >= 11, or MS Internet Explorer 9).
We have also released a new specific document to describe the pixel interpolation algorithms
available on the PixInsight/PCL platform, with more technical information than previous releases. It is available as a related document
from several geometrical tool documents: Resample
The rest of documents available have been revised and updated to reflect recent changes in the implementations. This includes mainly ColorCalibration
. Numerous minor errors and some imprecise descriptions have also been fixed.
For developers, we have also released a new version of the documentation compiler script, 1.3.3, with many bug fixes, important new features in the PIDoc markup language, and improved document generation capabilities. We'll release an updated documentation for the PIDoc compiler within the next days.
Here is a list of the standard tools that are now documented:
In addition, these development tools by Georg Viehoever are also documented:
The list is still small, that's true, but we are working almost exclusively on writing documentation now, so I hope it will grow during the next weeks/months. Our priority is to document some of the most complex and rich tools first, as we have done with DynamicPSF and DynamicCrop in this release.
Please note that we are stopping development of some important new tools and application features with this policy change. We are also slowing down production of new video tutorials. This will damage our position against competing products in the short-medium term, so I hope this is what a majority of users really want us to do. This is what we have understood from the criticism we have received recently. Thanks for your attention.
