FIXED: Possible crash for panorama if failing to crop due to poor transformations; now fails gracefully.
FIXED: Crash on EXTERNAL devices with Camera2 API that didn’t support querying the view angles.
FIXED: Photos would sometimes fail to save on some devices with Storage Access Framework, when some
options were enabled (options like DRO, HDR, auto-level, photostamp that require
post-processing; custom Exif tags like artist or copyright; or when using geotagging with Camera2 API).
FIXED: Fix for HDR scenes with both very bright and very dark regions, result would be over exposed.
FIXED: Fixed possible misalignment for HDR scenes with very bright or very dark images.
FIXED: Corrupt videos could be left over if video failed to start.
FIXED: Possible problem taking photos on some devices with LIMITED Camera2 API support.
FIXED: Possible problem with default edge mode and noise reduction mode behaviours on some devices
with LIMITED Camera2 API support.
FIXED: UI would become sluggish if camera or storage permission denied with “Don’t ask again”.
UPDATED: Now supporting “scoped storage” on Android 10+. This means storage permission is no longer
required on Android 10+. However this means the following changes:
* Saving outside of DCIM/ is no longer possible unless using the Storage Access Framework option.
If you had set up a custom save folder outside of DCIM/ and are on Android 10+,
it will be reset to the default DCIM/OpenCamera/ folder. If you want to continue saving outside of DCIM/,
you can enable
Settings/More camera controls/”Use Storage Access Framework” and choose a new folder.
* If using Video subtitles option, then the .SRT files will show up in gallery
applications, unless Settings/More camera controls/”Use Storage Access Framework” is enabled.
Note that these changes are required due to changes being made in Android that applications
are required to support.
UPDATED: Use seekbar for more settings (audio control sensitivity, image quality, photo stamp font size).
UPDATED: Debug XML files for panorama now saved in Android/data/net.sourceforge.opencamera/files/.
UPDATED: Camera now closed when in settings or preview otherwise in background.
