INDI Library v1.7.6 Released. (27 Feb 2019)

First release of 2019 comes with quite a few new drivers across the board along with significant performance improvements to INDI camera and live streaming performance. Many drivers received significant updates to improve performance & stability, while a few were re-written from scratch to be in line with INDI standards. Here are some of the highlights:

New INDI Atik driver - Feedback requested was created by knro

Good news everyone! I just finished pushing a new INDI Atik driver. This is the new INDI ATIK driver based on an open-source INDI driver (the library part is still proprietary). So the good thing is that it will be in the PPA and there don't be anymore linking issues. It should be available in the INDI Nightly repo later tonight. Let me know if you have any problems with it. Treat it as a BETA driver.

Thank you Jasem!
I make some test with my 314L+ and EFW2 and it work.
But sometime the client receive strange messages, look like some debug info was printed along with the expected value.
For example this one, received just after starting a 0.1 sec exposure:
<setNumberVector device="Atik 314L" name="CCD_EXPOSURE" state="Busy" timeout="60" timestamp="2018-11-23T17:04:45">
<oneNumber name="CCD_EXPOSURE_VALUE">
ArtemisImageReady Done: False

Please remove atikccd first, I'm rebuilding the library. for now you can do this
sudo apt-get remove atikccd

Patrick, thanks, I'll fix this right away.

ALso run this:
sudo apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-overwrite" install

until the package is fixed.

Jasem,
Am I missing something? I cloned from github but the Atik driver doesn't attempt to compile. I did manage it manually, but Atik seems to be missing from 3rdparty's CMakeLists.txt

psjshep,

Yes, it's not on 3rdparty building script.
I managed this (on raspbian) with following (as root, adapt with 'sudo' if you need):

ps: I cloned git repository in my home directory.
# build libatik

cd ~/indi/3rdparty/
mkdir build_libatik
cd build_libatik
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr . ../libatik
make
make install
# build driver

cd ~/indi/3rdparty/indi-atik/
mkdir build 
cd build 
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr .. 
make 
make install

Thanks...

I just added them to the 3rd party CMake. At any rate, the new libatik package should resolve the build issue. Launchpad builds for armhf are now VERY slow and it could take a day or more before they're available.

Thank you very, very much Jasem!
I have an Atik One with an internal filter wheel and the GP guider, I got two issues (I am not on the nightly channel):
- I can not change the name of the filters [ERROR] Error updating names of filters.
- GP is not visible (normaly connected via internal Atik one Hub, an SX Ultra can connect via the hub)

Hope this can help
