HDRLabs, Christian and me are pleased to announce that sIBL_GUI 3 is officially released !
The application has been fully rewritten, and features some cool things :
Component Framework : The Software is now component based, meaning you can extend the functionalities of sIBL_GUI easily and tweak or modify directly the provided components.
Customizable Ui Layout : Most of the Ui Components are movable, closable and resizable, meaning that you can put them wherever you want in the interface and store / restore the layouts.
Sqlite Database : Sets, Templates and Collections informations are stored in a database, it’s now easier to organise your Collections the way you want without having to move your files around everywhere on the hard drive. You can add Sets one by one if you want.
Google Map based Gps Map : The Gps Map is now Google Map based, no need for an explanation, it’s much better
Search Database : The search engine offers new possibilities, you can now search in a range of time, to get all Sunset Ibls for example.
