Is roboearth going through an intense week of migrating to fuerte?

Hi, I have noticed that in past 7/8 days, roboearth source has changed very vigorously. I have been able to install roboearth on ubuntu 12.04 with fuerte. However, when running re_object_recorder gui, when I try to save the model, i get the following error: OpenCV is NOT compiled with SURF support.

This problem, I am assuming comes from the fact that SURF and SIFT are now patented and are available with OpenCV as 3rd-party nonfree libraries.

Could this be the reason why I was not able to save models? Has this problem been/being resolved at the moment?

I will appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance

Sorry, this was my mistake, I guess I was a bit careless with committing. As I am currently not at my office, I will fix this next week when I am back.

We need some more time to get it fixed properly, unfortunately. I will update the answer as soon as we are done. In the meantime, I reverted it to the previous version, so that it works at least in electric.

Oh! Does that mean, the fuerte version will have to wait? In any case, I will wait for your response if you make RE work for electric. Good luck
