libgphoto2 2.5.0

New major version containing various API changes and restructuring to remove artificial limits (like 1024 files per directory) and clear up some APIs to make it a bit easier on frontends. This release is binary incompatible and also has some API incompatibilities, your applications will need to be rebuilt and perhaps adjusted.

libgphoto2 API

  • gp_context* functions no longer get varargs, but preprocessed strings. This makes hooking them into other language bindings easier.
  • gp_file_new_from_handler(): Allow passing data in and out via handler functions (to allow streaming). See also CameraFileHandler function pointers.
  • CameraFileInfoFile: removed "name" structmember and GP_FILE_INFO_NAME flags.
    Use direct passing in of the filename to the API functions.
  • New: gp_camera_autodetect(CameraList *list, GPContext*);
    Simple autodetection function returning all current detected cameras.
  • gp_file_set_name() and _get_name() passing in is no longer needed and the API will go away.
  • New gp_file_get_name_by_type() will convert a regular filename ("normal") into one depending on type (e.g. "raw_" prefix) and adjusted suffix (like ".ppm" turning into ".pgm" for grayscale previews).
  • gp_file_set_type() and gp_file_get_type() are gone, these functions are now implicit passed via arguments to the the put_file and set_file_noop() functions.
  • gp_filesystem_set_info_noop(), gp_filesystem_set_file_noop(), gp_filesystem_put_file(), gp_camera_folder_put_file():
    Added "filename" argument to pass in the filename. The one from CameraFileInfoFile and CameraFile are no longer used.
    Added "type" argument to pass in the filetype (GP_FILE_TYPE_*).
  • Adjusted to new GPPortInfo handling.
  • Rewrote gphoto2-filesys.c to be directory based (in a tree structure). Change should not be visibile outside of gphoto2-filesys.c.

libgphoto2_port API

  • GPPortInfo is now abstracted and internal.
    If you need to retrieve name, path or type, use gp_port_info_get_xx (info, &x); to get the value. Name and path strings continue to be owned by libgphoto2_port, do not modify and do not free.
    You are not supposed to create / append new ones to GPPortInfoList.
  • Disk Settings have been removed from the Settings union. Should not affect frontends at all.
  • Started using symbol versions.

PTP2 driver

  • PTP Object management rewritten, able to do "on demand" loading.
  • Directory driver

    • Use GPPortInfo instead of settings to pass basepath in.
    • Abstracted common functionality.

    • Ship README.packaging in dist tarball for the first time.
    • Allow building "all plus non-default" camlibs.
    • Fix libltdl test compile for cases with LDFLAGS defined.

    • Improved docs on how to selectively build camlibs.

    Test cases

    • Test camlib loading of both uninstalled and installed camlibs.

    New Pictureframe driver from Hans de Goede. ax203 based frames present themselves as a usb mass storage cdrom, which contains the windows software. Communication with the device happens by issuing special (custom) scsi commands. Also included is a "usbscsi" port driver, which allows sending the custom scsi commands. Note that if your ax203 frame has a usb-id of 1908:1315, you need to tell Linux not to touch the HID device this version also presents in its USB descriptor. To do this add the following on the linux kernel cmdline: "usbhid.quirks=0x1908:0x1315:0x4"

    libgphoto2 2.2.1

    Address an issue building 2.2.0 on FreeBSD.


    libgphoto2 2.2.0

    Build system (packagers beware!)

    • You should generate HAL FDI, linux-hotplug usb.usermap, and udev rules now via our program:

       	  ${libdir}/print-camera-list (hal-fdi|usb-usermap|udev-rules)
      
      During a chrooted build you can use:
      	CAMLIBS=$BUILDROOT/usr/lib/libgphoto2/2.2/ print-camera-list hal-fdi
      
      This obsoletes print-usb-usermap and print-udev-rules.
      The hal FDI file should be put into:
      	/usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/10-camera-libgphoto2.fdi
      
      If you need to generate different stuff based on the cameras, please add it to the "print-camera-list" helper.
    • Mass Storage support

      You can now access Mass Storage cameras via libgphoto2. They will show up with "disk:" port. This mode uses either HAL or direct /etc/fstab reading.

    • PTP/IP support

      We now can access PTP/IP cameras. They will show up with "ptpip:" port. Automated discovery and detection (for Nikon Px series) requires Apple Bonjour aka mDNSresponder devel packages. (An Avahi port would be welcome, but is not done yet.)

    • Added C# (csharp) bindings

      Thanks to Patrick van Staveren <trick@vanstaveren.us>'s initiative, we now compile, ship and install the C# bindings. These were originally written for f-spot.
      However, a few things will still change about it, so don't just completely rely on it, its file names and locations, etc. just yet.

    Client programmers (KDE, GNOME, MONO, C....)

    Programmers with specific character set requirements please observe:
    • We added new function gp_message_codeset(const char*) to the API.
      • If you do not call this function, libgphoto2 will give you its messages in the codeset defined by the system locale. (The system locale is defined by the LANG, LANGUAGE, and LC_* environment variables.)
      • Call this function with your desired codeset if you require libgphoto2 messages in a fixed codeset independent from the system locale. For example, GTK+ applications always expect UTF-8.
      • gp_message_codeset() propagates the requested charset to libgphoto2_port and then calls gettext's bind_textdomain_codeset() function.
    • Added gp_camera_wait_for_event() API, to wait for specific camera events and return them to the caller.

    libgphoto2 changes

    • libgphoto DSO version is now 2.1.0
    • Greatly reduced memory consumption on cameras with large images.

      We now cache only 2 images instead of a lot more.

      This number can be adjusted in the gphoto2 settings (~/.gphoto/settings, libgphoto=cached-images).

    • Lots of bugs were fixed.
    • New translations were added.

    Driver changes

    • PTP
      • Experimental PTP/IP support has been added.
      • On selected Nikon and Canon cameras it is now possible to capture images into the Camera SDRAM and in turn downloading it to libgphoto2 internal storage, bypassing the memory card.
        To enable it, use the "capturetarget" setting, also saved in .gphoto/settings.
        This is useful for:
        	   gphoto2 --capture-image -f /store_00010001 -p capt0000.jpg
        
        Or use the timelapse capture of gphoto2:
        	   gphoto2 --capture-image -F <total frames> -I <seconds interval>
        
        Or for write your own capture client using libgphoto2...
      • Support of MTP devices has been greatly enhanced.
        • Creative Zen devices now work.
        • iRiver devices work, but have some protocol subtleties / flaws.
        • Object Property (Meta Data) support now works in a basic way.
          GP_FILE_TYPE_METADATA type get and put can be used to retrieve and set meta data for files.
          get: Returns all available properties and their contents.
          put: Set the properties found in the file to the specified content. The non-listed are untouched.
          The metadata looks like:
          		   <Artist>Elvis Presley</Artist>
          	   gphoto2 -f /store_00010001/Folder... --get-metadata file.mp3 --stdout > meta_file.mp3
          	   ... edit meta_file.mp3 ...
          	   gphoto2 -f /store_00010001/Folder... --upload-metadata meta_file.mp3
          
          	   gphoto2 --get-all-metadata	... retrieves metadata of all files, with meta_ prefix.
          
          (please see the gphoto2 commandline tool, or ask for help on gphoto-devel).
      • Better --summary output, now listing also Storage Devices and Device abilities.
      • Lots of new device ids:
        • Canon 5D, 30D, A340, A700, S40, S80
        • Nikon D200
        • Casio EX-Z120
        • Kodak C360, Z700
        • HP M317
        • Panasonic DMC-LC1

    2.1.1 release (December 1st, 2002)

    libgphoto2 2.1.1, gphoto2 2.1.1 and gtkam 0.1.10 finally are released.

    libgphoto2 is a user space library providing camera independent access to almost 300 digital cameras.

    gphoto2 is a command line frontend for libgphoto2.

    gtkam is a GTK+ 2.0 based frontend for libgphoto2.

    This is the first release in which we split the command line frontend gphoto2 from the library libgphoto2.

    Since the gphoto2 2.1.0 release, we have added support for a lot of cameras:

    • Ricoh RDC-1, -2, -2E, -100G, -300, -300Z, -4200, -4300, -5000 Philips ESP2, ESP50, ESP60, ESP70, ESP80, ESP80SXG

    gPhoto 2.0 released (February 24th, 2002)

    The gphoto2 team is proud to introduce its first stable release.

    gPhoto2 is a complete rewrite of the award winning gphoto. gPhoto2 is now a library to access digital cameras. This library comes with a command-line frontend and others frontends are available separately (gtkam, GnoCam, kamera).

    To support USB cameras, this release requires libusb (0.1.5 or above). Moreover gphoto2 will optionally take advantage of the following libraries: libexif, aalib, libjpeg and libcdk.
