Lynkeos processes astronomical webcam images. By
stacking the best images, the signal to noise
ratio is increased, and details lost in the noise
of individual images become visible in the
resulting image. This software accepts, as input,
QuickTime, AVI, and MPEG sequences, or still images, in any image format supported by its active plugins (TIFF, FITS) and Cocoa. It generates a 16-bit RGB TIFF or a monochrome FITS image as output, to be further processed with some all-purpose image processing application.

Correction of TIFF display on Intel (2127078). Support for floating point TIFF (2216462). Process toggling on/off in the process stack window (2248076). Implementation of a cache for image processing. Refactoring of process chaining. A fix for a display bug when switching to/from calibration frames. Better handling of exceptions in threads. A compatibility fix for reading files older than V2.3. Access to the process window through the "window" menu. Optimization of image refresh. Access to plugins help. Independent zoom factor for list and result modes.
The European Southern Observatory algorithm was
added to the wavelet tool. Parallelization (for
multiproc/multicore) and vectorization (for
Altivec/SSE) were implemented on most of the image
processes. A LynkeosCore framework was created to
allow external processing plugin developement. A
RAW conversion preference pane was added. Many
bugs were fixed.
