Server release notes:
This release includes support for analog PTZ cameras that support Pelco-D. Both the client and the web interface have support for controlling analog PTZ cameras however currently only the client supports using presets. This release also resolves problems with ‘Failed DESCRIBE request’ when using Axis cameras.
Note: Currently there is a known bug (#712) that causes serious lag when giving several PTZ commands back to back. This is set to be fixed in beta5.1
Client release notes:
This release features support for analog Pan / Tilt / Zoom cameras. This release also offloads scaling from the CPU to the video card (GPU) using OpenGL. If you are using Linux, make sure the device drivers for your video card are installed and that you are not using the ‘generic’ VESA X11 driver, otherwise you will not be able to make use of the performance enhancements that OpenGL provides. This release also has several general live view improvements.
