I'm working a bit on qastrocam-g2. A new beta is available. The qwtplot3d library isn't needed anymore. It compils on
ubuntu 12.04 LTS (V4L1 access removed). I'm still working on the Philips cameras support over V4L2.
The 4.9 release won't add any new features. I just want the actual features to work on fresh kernels. QT4 migration is planned for the 5.0 release.
Best regards !
