Thank you and congratulations to Juan and the PI team! I'm really looking forward to digging in to all the new tools. So far she runs great on my Windows 10 laptop!

Thank you very much for all your hard work in putting together this amazing ( free  :D ) upgrade.

I am really very pleased with the results from the new Photometric ColorCalibration tool. 

Having said that, I have found that Pixinsigt hangs when I run PCC on one of my images ( linear 64bit HDR image ) whilst it has no trouble with the same linear image after It has been stretched. 

My system:  IMac running Windows 7 ( via Boot Camp ).  Pixinsight Ver 01.08.05.1353

Below is a screen shot of where it hangs...

Greetings, Juan

I see there isn't a 1.8.5 release for FreeBSD. Is this to come out some time after the other targets? Thanks for all of your hard work.

Hi Conor,

Thank you so much! The problem with a FreeBSD version is, as always, Qt. PixInsight 1.8.5 uses Qt 5.9 and requires Qt WebEngine, which is based on the Chromium web browser. Qt 5.9, and especially QtWebEngine, were not available/compilable on FreeBSD when I released 1.8.5 at the beginning of August. I see on KDE's blog that it has been ported two days ago, so I'll give it a try.

The problem with a FreeBSD version is, as always, Qt.

I feel your pain; I use a bunch of other proprietary Qt based tools on FreeBSD, and can, as such, certainly appreciate your frustration. FreeBSD feels like the 'poor uncle' when it comes support from Qt! That said, there's no burning rush. Your hard work is always appreciated by us few BSD users!

I see on KDE's blog that it has been ported two days ago, so I'll give it a try.

If I can help out in any way, please do let me know, whether it be testing or hacking around with Qt ports or otherwise.

Thanks again, man.

I am new to PixInsight and have barely scratched the surface of what it can do but so far I am blown away by its capabilities. You have done a first rate job and are definitely to be commended. Thanks to all of you for your hard work.

Juan,

Addendum to my previous post about Qt on FreeBSD; the rather harsh mixed-ABI rules enforced Qt are a bit annoying; it's not possible to use (read mix with PixInsight) system Qt libraries, unfortunately, which is desirable;

The libQt5WebKit bundled with PixInsight 1.8.4 requires libwebp 0.4 and libicu 55; many FreeBSD users (myself included) have moved on to 0.6 and 58 respectively, given the security vulnerabilities in the previous versions; would it be possible for these dependencies to be bundled with PixInsight in future releases? I don't know for certain, but I suspect the dependency tree might get a bit out of control. What do you think?

Hi folks

Have downloaded the new updated version and just run LocalNormalisation and asked it to put files in a named folder.  I can see the xnml files in the folder where they have been put, but when I open ImageIntegration and click Add files they are no where to be seen. Opening the file types list in ImageIntegration shows xisf file typebut no xnml.

Anyone offer advice? Thanks

I know I'm missing something obvious, but when I use the hotlink to download 1.8.5, I only find links to 1.8.05. Is that the same thing?

Yes.  I'm running the latest which identifies itself as 1.08.05.1353.

Hi folks,

Can I remove "Recently used" and "Most used" from Process Explorer tab?

Yes. In the Global preferences on the Main Window/Startup page you can turn them off.
