Announcing the cv.jit package 2.0 update


    Mar 22 2021 | 11:26 pm
    I am very happy to announce, along with our dear friend Jean-Marc Pelletier, the public release of cv.jit version 2. This update represents a huge amount of work from Jean-Marc (and a bit from myself) in modernizing and tightening up the this indispensable package.
    In addition to updating the underlying OpenCV libraries, the package contains a number of new objects:
    • cv.jit.blur
    • cv.jit.face.landmarks
    • cv.jit.kalman
    • cv.jit.keypoints
    • cv.jit.keypoints.match
    • cv.jit.noise
    • cv.jit.unproject
    and new abstractions:
    • cv.jit.face.landmarks.draw
    • cv.jit.face.parts
    • cv.jit.face.rigidpoints
    • cv.jit.iter
    • cv.jit.keypoints.draw
    • cv.jit.lowpass
    • cv.jit.notempty
    • cv.jit.changetype
    There are also several bug fixes, an updated launcher patch, and revamped help files. As ever, the source code for this project is available on GitHub for any devs to build and learn from. Please note you do NOT need to build from source to use the package.
    The update is available in the Package Manager, so give it a dl and check out the launcher patch from the extras menu for an overview of the vast functionality offered by cv.jit.
    Happy patching!

      The package was silently updated to include support for MacOS 10.12 through 10.14.
      If you are on either of those OSes and installed the package prior to this message, you should reinstall: quit Max delete the cv.jit package from ~/Documents/Max 8/Packages launch Max and reinstall cv.jit from the Package Manager
      all other OS versions and platforms can ignore this.
