New major version containing various API changes and restructuring to
remove artificial limits (like 1024 files per directory) and clear
up some APIs to make it a bit easier on frontends.
This release is binary incompatible and also has some API incompatibilities,
your applications will need to be rebuilt and perhaps adjusted.
- gp_context* functions no longer get varargs, but preprocessed
strings. This makes hooking them into other language bindings
- gp_file_new_from_handler(): Allow passing data in and out via
handler functions (to allow streaming). See also CameraFileHandler
- CameraFileInfoFile: removed "name" structmember and GP_FILE_INFO_NAME
Use direct passing in of the filename to the API functions.
- New: gp_camera_autodetect(CameraList *list, GPContext*);
Simple autodetection function returning all current detected cameras.
- gp_file_set_name() and _get_name() passing in is no longer needed
and the API will go away.
- New gp_file_get_name_by_type() will convert a regular filename ("normal")
into one depending on type (e.g. "raw_" prefix) and adjusted suffix
(like ".ppm" turning into ".pgm" for grayscale previews).
- gp_file_set_type() and gp_file_get_type() are gone, these functions
are now implicit passed via arguments to the the put_file and
- gp_filesystem_set_info_noop(), gp_filesystem_set_file_noop(),
Added "filename" argument to pass in the filename. The one
from CameraFileInfoFile and CameraFile are no longer used.
Added "type" argument to pass in the filetype (GP_FILE_TYPE_*).
- Adjusted to new GPPortInfo handling.
- Rewrote gphoto2-filesys.c to be directory based (in a tree structure).
Change should not be visibile outside of gphoto2-filesys.c.
- GPPortInfo is now abstracted and internal.
If you need to retrieve name, path or type, use
gp_port_info_get_xx (info, &x);
to get the value.
Name and path strings continue to be owned by libgphoto2_port,
do not modify and do not free.
You are not supposed to create / append new ones to GPPortInfoList.

not affect frontends at all.
