Hugin-2017.0.0 Release Notes

Hugin is more than just a panorama stitcher.

Changes since 2016.2.0

The version 2017.0 is mainly a bug fix release. The biggest fixes regard:

Besides the bug fixes some smaller improvements have been implemented.


Most of the translations have been updated for this release.


Upgrading from previous versions of Hugin should be seamless. If you do have problems with old settings, these can be reset in the Preferences window by clicking 'Load defaults'.

It is strongly recommended to set the default control point detector to Hugin's CPFind. It is the only control point generator endorsed by Hugin. Third-party generators may be compatible with the plug-in architecture.


Users compiling from source refer to the list of dependencies and the platform-specific build processes described in the wiki. More information in the README and INSTALL_cmake files in the tarball.

Known issues

Hugin does not run native on Wayland because of a bug in the underlying wxWidgets library.

The source code contains a workaround which forces the usage of the XWayland emulation layer. This workaround has be activated during compiling by adding -DUSE_GDKBACKEND_X11=on to the CMake command line.


Hugin can be found at SourceForge and Launchpad.

User communities produce executables for their respective platforms. Executables are likely to be announced within a few days of this tarball release on the mailing list and added to the download section on SourceForge.


Thanks to all the contributors to this release and members of the hugin-ptx mailing list, too many to mention here.
