Announcement from Geoff Biggs of AIST on creating a standalone release of PCL
For all of us who plan to spend Thanksgiving working (perhaps we enjoy coding more than turkey, or it could just be that we don't live in the US...), there's a brand new release of PCL. This brings it up to 0.5. (I'm reliably informed that this makes it "half-way decent.")
In conjunction with the 0.5 release, we have just put the finishing touches on a standalone distribution of PCL. This means that those of you who are not using ROS can now use PCL in your applications.
It's still somewhat unrefined, and we need to work with some of the dependencies to make installation easier. Look for many improvements as we head towards 1.0!
Thanks again to all the contributors!
