The Invisible man - Picture of the day, April 13th, 2005

This is really a picture of the day. It is not a setup, I was walking on Sainte-Catherine (Montreal) and saw that next to a store window.

One of the challenge was that I only had a 100m f/2.8 Macro mounted on the 20D, so it was quite hard to get the proper shooting angle...

New path

[Crashed Windows]

I started coding on Gtk MacOS X, and I investigated what they did in XDarwin the rootless XFree X server for MacOS X. I appears that they use Cocoa. So I decided that it my be a solution as I only need event and window management. The graphic layer will be Quartz directly.

Of course see screenshot on the side.

:-) Actually it is one of the "multimedia screen" I saw from outside on the street... crashed.

gphoto2 2.1.6-rc1

I have released libgphoto2 and gphoto2 2.1.6-rc1 (Release Candidate). This is the last in the 2.1.x series as we'll start developing 2.2. Thanks to all the contributors, developer and testers, for the work they put it in.
