Release Notes: New features include text overlays, IPv6 support, and input/output audio stream decoupling. Enhancements include improved performance in audio streaming for MIPS-based routers.
Release Notes: Support for the Logitech QuickCam Sphere/Orbit pan/tilt facilities has been improved. Support for the MotionEye camera found in some Sony laptops has been added. It is now possible to run the server in "viewer" mode, in which a X11 window displays the output from the capture source. Full support for the WL-500 router series from ASUS was added. Various improvements were made to the clients, especially the Java applet (now able to run also as an application).
Release Notes: The first release of a native, Qt-based Linux client is now available, along with updated versions of the Windows and Java clients. The server now supports the Logitech QuickCam Sphere/Orbit pan/tilt facilities. A bug which allowed malicious clients to crash the server has been fixed. Other important features include proper handling of large frames (exceeding 640x480) and the ability to individually choose the TCP ports for the video and audio stream.
Release Notes: A bug has been fixed which caused a malformed control string sent by a malicious client to crash the server. A workaround has been implemented for some camera drivers (W996CF and CPiA) reluctant to infer the capture depth from the requested palette. Three new values for the "Visual" parameter -- Slider_X, Slider_Y, Slider_Y -- allow explicit assignment of a control to one of the sliders on the client's main window, which used to be reserved for pan, tilt, and zoom controls. The Windows client has been updated as well (2.3.1).
Release Notes: Many improvements were made to the audio subsystem, including config options for selecting the audio input and software downsampling for devices with a fixed sample rate (such as btaudio). Another new feature is the ability to apply simple filters (at the moment, horizontal and vertical mirroring) to the captured frames. Various bugfixes were also made.
Release Notes: An improved anti-caching mechanism prevents Mozilla from trying to write the received stream into a temp file, eating up disk space. The source code for the GSM library is now included with the Palantir source package and is automatically built when compiling the server. This solves interoperability problems with the Windows client due to an inadequate libgsm.a.
Release Notes: Multi-buffered capture via mmap() is now implemented when supported by the video capture driver (e.g. bttv), providing a huge frame rate increase (up to 3x). A new "performance measurement mode", in which the server runs a tight capture-only loop and no clients are served, can be requested via a command-line option.
Release Notes: New configuration directives improve compatibility with non-PAL video standards and allow disabling the audio channel.
Release Notes: Palantir is now Open Source. This release of the server features changes in the interpretation of some configuration parameters (VideoDevice, NamedPipe, and SerialPort) and related commandline options, along with minor enhancements and bugfixes. A working (although incomplete) Java client is now available.
Release Notes: This release fixes erratic behaviour under heavy load upon thread creation failure. It changes the default 'Notifier' value for devices on 'Internal' link to 'Client'.
