Default What happened to the Pano tools website?

For those of you who love Panorama tools, the last version for Windows was Pano Tools 2.6beta, as far as I know. However, Helmut dersch's wonderful download site has been kaput for months. They were supposed to get back online in Sept. '02 but haven't yet. Does anybody have some info?

Is there another site that has a later version?

2.6b1 is available at http://www.path.unimelb.edu.au/~dersch/

I have heard speculation that Dersch is simply doing other things. He might have just lost interest - possibly after the IPIX lawsuit.

Updated / modified PanoTools [ Windows ]

http://www.tawbaware.com/maxlyons/pano12ml.htm

[ based on v26b1 - Also PTAssembler author's site ]

...
What's different about this version?
The version of Panorama Tools that you can download here differs from Helmut Dersch's "official" version in several respects:

It includes some modifications that were made to fix several bugs in Helmut's code.

It includes some modifications that Helmut made to his own code, but never officially released.

See the web page for more info.

There is also a new version available via the PTGui web site - not sure it is the same as the one at Max's site.

I've been working with the new version of PTGui. The method of picking the control points is much better than the previous version. Takes a bit of getting used to, but really helps picking the points right.

Not at all sure the new version is easier in any other way though - but that could be because I am so used to using the old interface that I haven't put any effort into figuring out the "wizzard" that takes you through some of the steps. Haven't stuck with it enough to see how/if it deals with things like picking the projeciton you want to use (it does give a warning if you ask for a rectilinear projection with a HOV>120 degrees).

I came across this from PTGui's author on DPReview:

Joseph,

Yes, this will work just fine.
Actually the Panorama Tools version on my site includes Max's memory fix too.
