Some algorithms (like image statistics calculations) were
reworked to fully utilize multi-core CPUs or modern PCs. It is
almost impossible to buy a PC with single-core CPU these days and
even the cheapest netbooks are equipped with dual core processors.
Number of fully parallelized algorithms in SPIS will increase over
time. Parallelization in SIPS is not limited to certain number of
cores—if the CPU offers six, eight or more
cores, parallel algorithms are designed to use all of them.
SIPS v2.0.1. allows dragging of image selection frame larger
than the visible portion of the image. If the user scrolled the
image and tried to continue in dragging of the selection

Fixed problem when new image downloaded from camera,

Fixed problems when the user closed the CCD Camera tool
window while the image was just downloaded from the
Clicking of Full Frame command button in the
Frame tab of CCD Camera tool reset the binning count
boxes to 1, but the full resolution was kept to values
corresponding to selected binning.
If some transformations were applied to newly downloaded
image (defined in New Image Transform tool), selected
sub-frame remained related to the image before these
transformations, which did not correspond to the image displayed
in the Frame tab.
SIPS v2.0.1 is a freeware and can be downloaded from the download section of this WWW site.
