AForge.NET 1.6.3 Release

The new version of AForge.NET introduces one of the most highly requested features - changing frame rate and frame size of local capture device. Now there are DesiredFrameRate and DesiredFrameSize properties in AForge.Video.DirectShow.VideoCaptureDevice class, which allow to set desired frame rate and size (desired because it may not be provided if capture device does not support specified settings).

AForge.NET is a C# framework designed for developers and researchers in the fields of Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence - image processing, neural networks, genetic algorithms, machine learning, etc.
At this point the framework is comprised of 5 main and some additional libraries:

AForge.Imaging – a library for image processing routines and filers;
AForge.Neuro – neural networks computation library;
AForge.Genetic –
evolution programming library;
AForge.Vision – computer vision library;
AForge.Machine Learning – machine learning library.

The work on the framework's improvement is in constants progress, what means that new feature and namespaces are coming constantly. To get knowledge about its progress you may track source repository's log or visit project discussion group to get the latest information about it.
The framework is provided with not only different libraries and their sources, but with many sample applications, which demonstrate the use of this framework, and with documentation help files, which are provided in HTML Help format.
In the case you found an issue in any component of the framework or you would like to request for a new feature, you may feel free to submit the issue/request on the “Issues” page.
In case you are interested in the project and would like to learn about it more or in case you would like to contribute it, you are more than welcome to participate in the project’s discussion group.
