NEWS/CHANGES from beta7 to beta8:
(for the new features from beta7 have a look at here - 1.0.8 beta 7)

VIEWER:
  • distorted hotspots
    • distorted parameter for hotspots (true or false)
    • rx,ry,rz parameters for the 3D roation over the X/Y/Z axis (in degrees)
    • the size can be controlled via width,height and scale
    • refreshrate parameter for animated images (swf hotspots) can be 0-60, default is "auto" - this will automatically detect the frame rate for swf movies (for videos it's recommended to use the videoplayer plugin)
    • to move/scale/rotate the hotspots use the editor plugin
    • NADIR LOGO EXAMPLE
    • VIDEO HOTSPOT EXAMPLE
  • xml parsing - "url" attributes
    • all attributes that begin or end with "url" are automatic parsed as urls, if the url was relative, it was made relative to the xml in which it was defined (this was used for the "videourl" parameter in the videoplayer plugin)
  • <style> node for parameter sharing
    • this can be used to reduce the xml code size
    • the same attributes for plugins or hotspots can be stored at one place
    • very well suitable for textfield plugins and (polygonal) hotspots
    • note - the parameters can NOT be overwritten in the plugin/hotspots definition!
    • usage:

      Source code

      1
      2
      3
      4
      
      <style name="style1" alpha="0.5" scale="0.5" ... />
      <plugin  name="p1" ... style="style1" />
      <plugin  name="p2" ... style="style1" />
      <hotspot name="h1" ... style="style1" />

  • action parameters
    • use 'parameter' or "parameter" to mark everything between the quotes as a "together connected string"
    • this allows the usage of commas (,) and blanks in parameters
    • e.g.

      Source code

      1
      
      showtext('string, 123');
      or

      Source code

      1
      
      showtext("string, string");

  • user defined actions <action> can now be called "direct"
    • e.g. instead of:

      Source code

      1
      
      action(actionname, parameters...);
      now also just:

      Source code

      1
      
      actionname(parameters...);
      is possible
  • new "preload" parameter for plugins
    • force loading before pano,
    • can be used for the soundinterface plugin for example to make sure that the soundinterface is already loaded before making calls to it
    • example usage:

      Source code

      1
      2
      3
      
      <krpano onstart="playsound(...);">
      <plugin url="soundinterface.swf" preload="true" />
      ...

  • logkey="false"
    • disables now also the debugging keys
    • note - these keys are only available in the beta versions
  • txtadd(dest, txt1, txt2, txt3, ...)
    • this actions adds strings together
    • dest = txt1 + txt2 + txt3 + ...
  • WAIT flag for the tween() action
    • waiting until this tween has been finished before the next action command will be executed
    • usage:

      Source code

      1
      
      tween(variable,destinationvalue,time,tweentype,WAIT);

  • new "tweentypes" (with optional parameters)
    • easeInElastic(amplitude,period); (defaults: automatic)
    • easeOutElastic(amplitude,period); (defaults: automatic)
    • easeInBack(overshoot); (defaults: overshoot=1.7015)
    • easeOutBack(overshoot); (defaults: overshoot=1.7015)
    • usage:

      Source code

      1
      
      tween(var,value,0.5,easeOutElastic);
      or:

      Source code

      1
      
      tween(var,value,0.5,easeOutElastic(5,2));

  • mod() - math modulate operator
    • usage:

      Source code

      1
      
      mod(dst,val1,val2);

    • dst=val1 % val2
    • val1,val2 can be values or variables
  • adjusthlookat(desthlookat)
    • adjusts the hlookat value for manual tweening
    • it fixes the 360 wrap around for the shortest way to "desthlookat"
    • usage:

      Source code

      1
      2
      
      adjusthlookat(140);
      tween(view.hlookat,140);

  • fscommand() action
    • for controlling the standalone projector (.exe/.app files from the kprotect tool)
    • usage examples:
      • fscommand(quit);
        • quits the standalone flashplayer

      • fscommand(showmenu,false);
        • hides the menubar of the standalone flashplayer

      • fscommand(exec,application.exe);
        • starts an external application
        • NOTE - this application must be in a subfolder named "fscommand"


  • CHANGED - the "stop()" action was removed! (now used by the videplayer plugin)
    • but stopall() (which is the same) is still working

  • Bugfixes:
    • error() action - commas (,) are allowed now in the error message
    • QTVR - added a error message for unsupported header compression
    • element access (global/local)
    • locked autorotate on limited fov

    • plugin/hotspot - onup event was also triggered after removing
    • memory tiles cache optimized
    • fixed "upside down" mouse control
    • lookto() - fixed vertical loops
    • if() - then/else actions were executed in the wrong order
    • if(var, ...) - true/false checking improved
    • showtext() - now executed "in order"



PLUGINS:
  • editor plugin
    • image and polygon hotspots can be moved now

    • bufix - architectural projection is now disabled while drawing hotspots
    • xml generator partially updated for the new attributes
  • soundinterface plugin
    • bugfix - sound directions
  • googlemaps plugin
    • new control for the map type:

      Source code

      1
      
      <maptypecontrol visible="true" anchor="rightbottom" x="2" y="2" buttonalign="v" />

      • buttonalign parameter, possible values: "h" (for horizontal) and "v" (for vertical alignment of the buttons)

    • maptypes parameter
      • set available map types
      • example:

        Source code

        1
        
        maptypes="NORMAL|SATELLITE|PHYSICAL|HYBRID"

    • onmaptypechanged event
      • will be called when the map type changes

    • tilename adjustable
    • bugfix - wrong jpeg imagesize
