Motion - Motion Release 3x 2x 4snap 2

Motion Snapshot Release 3.2.4 snap2

Release Notes

3.2.4 snap2 - 04 Sep 2005

Development Release

Changes since 3.2.3

  • Removed all warnings originating from the motion sources when running ./configure --with-developer-flags. The modifications were done by the following people: Peter Holik, Bill Brack, Angel Carpintero and Kenneth Lavrsen. We now encourage developers to ensure that new code is checked with --with-developer-flags and code made so that no new warnings shows originating from the motion sources.
  • Fixed error message with unknown config option (Bill Brack)
  • Fixed small mistake in allocating memory for cnt->imgs.common_buffer (Angel Carpintero).
  • Implemented a speed-up patch of the draw text feature (Peter Holik).
  • http control updated: (null) messages replaced by "disabled", last parameter in conf/list are displayed correctly and only in Main thread. When motion runs with only one thread, it displays "No threads". (Angel Carpintero)
  • Enhanced compatibility with Lumenera (Bill Brack).
  • http control: selectbox instead of a textfield for changing boolean configs (Peter Holik and Angel Carpintero).
  • Introduced check for device image size being a multiple of 16 (Peter Holik).
  • Added the debian sub directory so that people can build the deb package (Angel Carpintero).
  • Sync (adding support for jpeg-mmx, developer-flags and some cosmetic changes ) (Angel Carpintero)
  • Implemented --with-developer-flags fixes in FreeBSD code (Angel Carpintero).
  • Implemented Threadnr in TLS (thread-local storage)patch. It puts the thread number into TLS and modifies motion_log() so that we do not have to drag the cnt struct around just to be able to print the thread number in the log and on the console. (Per Jönsson with additional removal of unuseded cnt by Kenneth Lavrsen).
  • Moved the motion_loop initialization into a new function motion_init (Bill Brack).
  • Removed old unused code related to read mode (not mmap) from V4L devices (Kenneth Lavrsen).
  • In v4l_start change map from unsigned char * to void * to be ANSI C compliant with mmap (Angel Carpintero)
  • http control: Changed disabled to (not defined) when displaying option list (Angel Carpintero).
  • Netcam code now waits for the next frame to arrive for a limited period in order to avoid too many duplicate images (Bill Brack).
  • Motion loop resets its frame timer when the image received is from a netcam. This lowers the actual framerate of Motion to the rate the netcam can actually keep up with. (Kenneth Lavrsen)
  • Last --with-developer-flags warnings eliminated simply by swapping the order of the #include statements in the sources (Bill Brack and Kenneth Lavrsen).
  • FreeBSD Code improvements by Angel Carpintero.
    • Implemented set/get hue, saturation, contrast and brightness.
    • Better support to capture with big resolution (640x480 , 768x576).
    • Update Readme adding information about "how to configure a capture card and settings", update packages dependencies.
    • Remove support for libjpeg-mmx, motion segfault (future fix).
    • Cosmetic changes in (replace --without-v4l by without-bktr).
    • Cleanup code and fix warnings.

  • Simplified rotation code based on the fact that images must have dimentions that are a multiple of 16 (Per Jönsson)
  • Switchfilter feature repaired. It was called inside motion_detected() after overlays on cnt->img.out were added which meant that the feature also detected all the overlays, smartmasks, fixed mask and text. It is now moved to the motion_loop right after the lightswitch feature and before any overlays are added (Kenneth Lavrsen).
  • Fixed small bug where motion was detected when using a tracking camera and the camera moved to center position when gap period expires. The fix includes gathering the updating of reference frame in one place only in the motion_loop (Kenneth Lavrsen).
  • Implemented the new text option text_event and new conversion specifier %C. Option text_event defines the value %C which then can be used in filenames and text_right/text_left. The text_event/%C uses the time stamp for the first image detected in a new event. Default value is %Y%m%d%H%M%S. %C is an empty string when no event is in progress (gap period expired). Pre_captured and minimum_motion_frames images are time stamped before the event happens so %C in text_left/right does not have any effect on those images (Kenneth Lavrsen).
  • Renamed some variables related to time to be better descriptive of function and type (Kenneth Lavrsen).
  • Added new option 'sql_user_text'. This can be defined with the same conversion specifiers as text_xxx, on_xxxx and filenames. The SQL field text_left has been removed and replaced by a field user_text which is used for storing the interpreted value of sql_user_text (Kenneth Lavrsen)
  • Added new SQL field event_time_stamp of the type TIMESTAMP (Kenneth Lavrsen).

Next Steps

  • New features round saving config files. Still needs some discussion.
  • Auto tracking enabled when starting Motion controlled by option
  • Tracking feature through TCP/IP port.

Known Problems

  • See the for open bugs.
  • The pwc-ioctl.h is for pwc version 9.0.1, 10.0.6 and 10.0.7a. If you still use the pwc 8 series then you need to use the headerfile pwc-ioctl.h-pwc8.0 (copy the pwc-ioctl.h-pwc8.0 over pwc-ioctl.h). This is relevant for USB cameras using Philips chips.
