2008-10-17 - DAVID Version 2.1
DAVID Version 2.1 is available for download now! It contains the following
new features and improvements:

*Global Fine Registration*: This function can improve the overall alignment
of multiple scans. It aligns all scans to each other, trying to find a
global optimum.

*Alignment Texture Support*: Texture can be used to facilitate automatic
scan alignment. This helps to auto-align surfaces that have no remarkable
structure.

*Undo and Redo*: All scan alignment actions can be undone any time (Coarse
Registration, Fine Registration, Global Fine Registration, manual scan
movements).

*Advanced Settings Menu*: Lots of parameters can be configured now, so
experienced users can adopt DAVID to their requirements - e.g. defining
special scanning setups with freely configurable background planes.

*Improved Manual Cleaning Tool*: A polygonal selection mode and selection
inversion let you remove undesired mesh parts more comfortably.

*Reduced Memory Consumption*: DAVID can handle even more and higher
resolution scans for alignment and fusion.

*Portuguese Translation*: Dialogues and menus are now available in English,
German, French, Italian, and new: Portuguese.

*And many more*: Lots of small improvements, some bugfixes...
A full list of changes can be found in the file "changes.txt" which is
included in the download as usual.
