-*** RELEASE 1.0.1, 2 FEBRUARY 2006 ***
+*** RELEASE 2.0.alpha1, 18 OCTOBER 2007 ***
+So many little things have changed or been added that it is hard to
+know where to begin. Real documentation will be forthcoming during
+the beta period. More will become apparent in forthcoming alpha
+relases, too. We'll focus on a few big-ticket items here.
+Added the Stereo module, which performs dense stereo correlation on pairs
+of images using a fast sum-of-absolute-difference technique. See the example program for a few examples of how it can be used.
+Added the GPU module, which supports performing many image processing
+operations directly on the GPU. Docs and examples coming soon.
+Greatly enhanced the options for handling very large images. For
+large images in memory, multi-thread your image processing operations
+using the new block_rasterize() function. For extremely large images
+on disk, "read" them in using a DiskImageView, "process" them lazily
+using ImageViewRef for any necessary intermediates, and write the
+result to disk using write_image().
+Greatly improved camera response curve calibration in the HDR module.
+The command-line tools hdr_merge and hdr_tonemap work well in many
+cases now.
+Added support for orthorectifiying an aerial or satellite image if you
+have a traditional camera model and (optionally) a suitable DEM. See
+OrthoImageView.h and its companion helper file CameraBBox.h in the
+Cartography module.
+*** RELEASE 1.0.1, 2 FEBRUARY 2007 ***
Renamed the *EdgeExtend classes and header files to *EdgeExtension,
for grammatical consistency.

+The NASA Vision Workbench Version 2.0.alpha1
+*** IMPORTANT ***
+This is an ALPHA release of the Vision Workbench. There are many
+known bugs and incomplete features, and the API will almost certainly
+change prior to the final release of version 2.0. Much of the
+documentation is incomplete or incorrect. Although we hope you will
+find this release helpful, you use it at your own risk.
