Version 2009.2.0 of hugin


Release Notes: Experimental hardware accelerated stitching has been introduced, in order to use multiple cores and GPU performance. Typical settings for common external control point creators are now provided. The user can add new creators, and they can be switched at any time. An extra stitching mode has been added which groups photos with similar exposures and blends them into "layers", and subsequently "exposure fuses" these layers into a final panorama. Visual control points have been added to the Fast Preview window. EXIF metadata display can now be displayed. The versioning scheme has been modified to reflect stability.
