Java USB Camera Tools handle cameras that support the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) standard, a vendor-neutral standard for talking to digital cameras using USB. It provides a protocol library and command line tools, and it works nicely with GCJ, the GNU Compiler for Java.
Release Notes: Merging of some cleanups and a new SRPM so that users of RedHat 7 (and compatible) operating systems, with GCJ support, can build jPhoto binaries using just this package. It handles Kodak DC-4800 cameras smoothly on the latest Linux kernels.
Release Notes: A new capture command, and the addition of an x86 RPM for RedHat 7, with a normal executable. It uses the GNU "libgcj" JVM much like any C or C++ program uses GNU runtimes for those languages.
Release Notes: This release, available in source and binary forms, fixes all the known bugs in previous versions. It also works with the Linux 2.4.0-test9 kernel; some USB changes could break previous versions. Kaffe support works, for those of you with CPUs that Sun's JVM won't handle. Briefly, this means that your Kodak DC-4800 camera now works as well with Linux-USB as with a Microsoft OS.
Release Notes: Initial binary only release.
