Release Date: 2020-12-07 // 3 months ago
  • ๐Ÿ”– Version 2.1.5: Released Dec 6th, 2020

    • ๐Ÿ”„ Changes in libraries:
      • \ref mrpt_containers_grp
      • Both mrpt::containers::CDynamicGrid and mrpt::containers::CDynamicGrid3D are now compatible with range-based for loops, and also have a data() method.
      • \ref mrpt_core_grp
      • Added mrpt::LockHelper::unlock()
      • Added mrpt::Clock::nowDouble()
      • New method mrpt::WorkerThreadsPool::name()
      • Function mrpt::system::callStackBackTrace() moved to mrpt::callStackBackTrace()
      • mrpt::callStackBackTrace() now uses BFD to find out line numbers if debug info (at least -g1) is available.
      • Stacked exceptions changes:
        • Line numbers will be now shown if built with debug info (>= -g1).
        • Exceptions in STL or any other 3rd-party library will be also reported with exact call point line number, as long as MRPT_START/MRPT_END is used in the user function.
        • No further need to call mrpt::exception_to_str(), just calling what() will return a detailed stack backtrace.
        • New function mrpt::winerror2str()
      • \ref mrpt_gui_grp
      • New method mrpt::gui::CGlCanvasBase::CamaraParams::FromCamera()
      • \ref mrpt_math_grp
      • Added missing method for consistent API across pose classes: mrpt::math::TPose3D::operator+()
      • \ref mrpt_system_grp
      • mrpt::system::COutputLogger::writeLogToFile() will now save all messages despite the runtime log verbosity level.
    • ๐Ÿ› BUG FIXES:
      • Fix error rendering an opengl scene with mrpt::opengl::CCamera objects in it.
      • rawlog-edit silently ignored when more than one operation was requested.
      • Fix FTBFS against libjsoncpp 1.9.4 (Closes #1118)
      • Fix AppStream errors and warnings in Debian Tracker.

      • \ref mrpt_containers_grp
      • mrpt::containers::yaml avoids throwing internal exceptions as part of regular valid conversions, and better support and report of out-of-range integers.

      • mrpt::math::linspace() added overload returning by value.
      • \ref mrpt_random_grp

      • mrpt::tfest::TMatchingPairListTempl::saveAsMATLABScript() now draws 3D correspondences too.
      • RANSAC method mrpt::tfest::se3_l2_ransac() now uses more correct SO(3) metric for angular distance threshold instead of independent yaw/pitch/roll angles.
      • BUG FIXES:
      • Fix wrong Debian dependencies of libmrpt-dev
