Edoardo, I'll have to recompile all my modules for compatibility to the new PCL. Give me a few days, please.

Thank you Carlos for the reply.
No problem!  Please notify us when done.

Hi.

I'm running Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS. Was running previous versions fine. Installed latest version, and now I get (even when starting as root);

Thank you very much for your released.
I'll wait impatiently for the OSX version in September. Good luck.

Hi,

Version 1.8.4.1170 for Linux was compiled with SSSE3 instruction support by mistake. I have just released version 1.8.4.1171 with SSE3, which should run fine on your AMD processor. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanx Juan, much better now.

BTW: Laptop with Intel T5600, cpuboss.com suggests that it has SSE3 (and supplemental SSE3). Not sure exactly what you did, but at least it loads now ;-)

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the hard work and awesome program. Very much appreciate it.

One issue I have with 1.8.4 is the font. I find it larger and more obtrusive than 1.8.3. When working on a laptop real and "perceived" workspace is at a premium, and with 1.8.4, the whole UI feels larger and out dated. The kerning also makes it harder to read for myseld (more fuzzy and jagged). Is there anyway to revert to the 1.8.3 UI/font?

Actually, after looking at it, I am quite positive the whole UI grew in size. Some of my tool bars have been collapsed and menus are larger. (1366x768 display) :(

Thanks

Hello everyone
It is the first time I write in the forum and do not speak English, so I use the Google translator.
I'm using PI long ago and I have a problem with the new version ...
Gone is the SCRIPT "Masked Stretch". Is this normal in the new version?
How I can recover it?

I hope your answer. THANK YOU

Hola lpeirosaez (supongo que hablas español).

Si tienes cualquier duda, no hay problema con que escribas acá en español.

Hace ya varios meses que se ha reemplazado el script Masked Stretch por un proceso, llamado también MaskedStretch. Lo encontrarás en la categoría "IntensityTransformations". Este proceso debería funcionar mejor, y correr más rápido que el script.

Gracias por la respuesta.
Ya conocía el proceso; pero lo que no sé es que diferencias hay entre el proceso y el Scrip. ¿Dónde puedo conseguir la información de los procesos que no tienen documentación en la aplicación ni en la web?  Hay algún lugar histórico de documentación?

Un saludo,
Leoncio

Hola Leoncio

Hay dos diferencias importantes. La primera es que el proceso es más determinístico en el cálculo de los cambios necesarios, para cada iteración. Esto hace que el algoritmo sea más rápido/eficiente. Por otro lado, se calcula también de forma distinta cómo se distribuyen los cambios a lo largo de las iteraciones, previlegeando cambios homogéneos, en vez de concentrar cambios bruscos en alguna parte. En mi opinión, el proceso debería mejorar mejor que el script, tanto en calidad de los resultados, como en rapidez.

En general la información de los módulos se publica aquí en el foro, y hay descripciones bastante completas.
Otra forma de obtener información es leer lo que sale en las herramientas, en las ventanas de ayuda (tooltips, que aparecen al dejar un tiempo el mouse sobre textos o sliders o campos de edición).

Hi Juan,
great news!

>Integrated C++ compiler. This will make it possible to release PCL-based, open-source modules in source code form, which will be deployed with automatic >compilation and building on the user's machine. We are still evaluating several options, but with high probability we'll integrate the clang compiler.

This sounds interesting. I think it includes that module developers
- Must avoid writing platform depended code sections in the module code, e.g. code containing Microsoft extensions to C/C++ which are not supported by clang
- Have to distribute the binaries themselves until this feature is available.

Hi Klaus,

Quote

Absolutely. PCL allows you to write 100% standard C++11 code that is 99.9% platform-independent. My goal is to reach a practical 100% this year. Note that this is true right now.

Yes, this is what we are doing now with module releases and updates. Naturally, binary distribution will continue being available in the future along with source code distribution (for example, for distribution of closed-source modules).

Hi,
I had installed Windows 10 (from W7), and PixInsight crashed when I tried to load a file. It was working fine with W7. I reinstalled PI, but the problem persisted. I had exactly the problem described by WesChilton in his post. I then reverted to Windows 7, and the PI problem vanished. Today I reinstalled W10, and the crash problem persisted with PI. Please help me.

TIA,
Luiz Duczmal

I tried Juan Conejero´s suggestion given in another thread, and it is working now! Many thanks!

>>Try with multiplatform file dialogs: EDIT > Global Preferences > File I/O Settings > Use native file dialogs (disable). Press F6 or click Apply Global. With this option disabled the application will not use Windows file dialogs, but its own platform-independent implementation. Hopefully this will help with this specific issue.
