The November 22, 2022 CloudComPy Windows10 release is available

The November 22, 2022 version of the Windows 10 Anaconda 3 binary is available here.

The corresponding Anaconda3 configuration is described in the README.

WARNING This version requires a conda environment based on Python 3.10.

WARNING Qt 5.15.6 is not compatible with Qt 5.15.4!  Please force Qt 5.15.4 in the following instructions. Specifying Qt 5.15 is not enough...


To create this environment, see the README, use the following instructions.

conda activate
conda update -y -n base -c defaults conda
conda create --name CloudComPy310 python=3.10
   # --- erase previous env if existing
conda activate CloudComPy310
conda config --add channels conda-forge
conda config --set channel_priority strict
conda install "boost=1.74" "cgal=5.4" cmake ffmpeg "gdal=3.5" jupyterlab laszip "matplotlib=3.5" "mysql=8.0" "numpy=1.22" "opencv=4.5" "openmp=8.0" "pcl=1.12" "pdal=2.4" "psutil=5.9" pybind11 "qhull=2020.2" "qt=5.15.4" "scipy=1.8" sphinx_rtd_theme spyder tbb tbb-devel "xerces-c=3.2"

WARNING CloudComPy is now built with pybind11 instead of Boost.Python. For the CloudComPy user, the Python scripts are unchanged, but there is always the possibility of small changes in the behaviour of the code or bugs not covered by the tests. (if so, please post issues).

WARNING On Windows, with the binary based on the conda packages, Python 3.10, only the English version of CloudCompare is available,
   the translations are not available: it seems that this is due to a bug in the Qt 5.15.4 version of the conda package.
   We are waiting for the correction of this bug in the packaging.

This version brings the following features:

  • update to CloudCompare master > 2.12.4 (November 20, 2022). The new LAS plugin is not yet taken into account in this release.
  • (issue #74) document RANSAC_SD plugin: extract plane equation.
  • (issue #76) fix the tracing system.
  • Various small fixes.
