theKompany.com contributes Kamera digital camera code to KDE CVS

[ Thanks to Shawn
for this link. ]

Kamera, KDE2’s gPhoto2 IO Slave for digital cameras is now
integrated into KDE CVS under the ‘kdegraphics’ module. This is now
the definitive source for Kamera and obsoletes the versions
previously available at theKompany’s website. theKompany will
continue to support the library and the web pages detailing the
information. All other developers are welcome to join in.

After discussions on the gphoto-devel list between gphoto, KDE
and GNOME developers we have standardised on a ‘camera://’ URL for
digital cameras, to avoid confusion between users of the different
desktops. The version in KDE CVS conforms to this standard.

Please note that Kamera relies on gPhoto2, currently under heavy
development and only available via CVS. Therefore there may be
times when the driver for your particular camera may not be in a
working state, or necessary changes in the gPhoto2 API breaks
Kamera compilation.

theKompany would like to
take this opportunity to praise the KDE team for their IO Slave architecture
and assistance, and especially the gPhoto2 developers for their excellent
work. Thanks!
