Release Notes

RovioController release v1.0.0.1

(You probably will only need the MSI file.)

This release is currently untested on a separate machine from my development machine. Feel free to try the install, it will install the application as well as a directory on your c:\ drive called c:\Rovio\ . This is required for various reasons, but it stores the audio files and this directory is used as temporary space for speech recognition and as an image temp folder (so that Matlab can be used to do edge detection). Matlab is not required, and is defaulted to not being used. A future release will contain information on how to install and use Matlab. It will also install one shortcut on your desktop.

I am using the Visual Studio 2005 Installation - Setup and Deployment so I am trusting in Microsoft not to install anything additional other than what is required by the program.

I am not sure if you need both programs, the MSI file should be enough, but I am including the Setup as well. This should run fine on a Vista 32-bit or 64-bit OS.

A great start, looking forward to further releases and extending Rovio's capablities beyond just a roving webcam. Looked at the demo videos and really looks fun. Good to see Rovio being put to other uses.
