The Paparazzi Development Team is pleased to announce the release of the '''Paparazzi v4.0 stable''' version.
 
 
 
After several months of testing and debugging, the [[RepositoryStructure|release preparation branch v3.9]] has been released as v4.0. See the [https://github.com/paparazzi/paparazzi/blob/v4.0/CHANGELOG.md changelog] for an overview of new features and bugfixes.
 
 
 
If you are already using paparazzi with [[Git]], you can switch to this new branch with

'''[http://www.teamatmos.nl/ ATMOS]''', a hybrid [http://www.teamatmos.nl/video airplane-quadrotor] developed at the MAVlab of TU-Delft, was awarded third place (out of 140) in the [http://www.uavforge.net/ UAVForge] Competition. There were more than 140 initial [http://www.uavforge.net/uavhtml/milestones.php contestants] and after several selection rounds with only 12 finalists, the paparazzi [[Lisa/M]] powered [http://www.teamatmos.nl/ ATMOS] was one of the few that could actually make it to the remote target site miles away in an RF unfriendly environment. No team fully completed the baseline objectives which is why no prices were issued. The vertical takeoff and landing, together with long range thanks to the wing and flexibility thanks to opensource paparazzi were key factors in this event [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81NvfLFzhqQ].
 
 
 
But probably more important, the development of [http://www.teamatmos.nl/ ATMOS] has added a new [https://github.com/tudelft/paparazzi/tree/atmos-master4-flyoff code-base] to paparazzi to enable the control of any hybrid [https://github.com/tudelft/paparazzi/blob/atmos-master4-flyoff/sw/airborne/firmwares/rotorcraft/force_allocation_laws.c multi-lifting] device vehicle. ATMOS can take-off vertically as a quadrotor, transition to full forward flight as an airplane but also fly in any intermediate transition stage fully autonomously. So let your imagination go loose!

In March 2012, Paparazzi flew in southern Madagascar in the frame of a multi-university project to study and improve the ecosystem in one of the poorest regions of the world ([http://www.sulama.de Project]). More than 4000 hectares of farm and grassland were photographed in visible and near infrared spectra. More than 8500 photos were taken. Surely one of the biggest missions for science ever flown with Paparazzi.

We believe the switch from Subversion to the fast [http://git-scm.com/ git] version control system will make development easier, faster and more fun. It also makes it easier for YOU to contribute. You can easily fork paparazzi on github, commit your bugfixes and new features and send us a pull request.
 
 
 
More info on how to get the paparazzi code from github can be found [[Git|here]].

|[[Image:OrganizedCode.png|thumb|left|[[User/AirborneCodeReorg|Code Reorganization]]]]
 
After many years of development, so many new autopilot boards and aircraft types have been added that a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Source_code sourcecode] reorganization was needed. This undertaking is started and will simplify the continuous evolution of the project.
 
 
 
To benefit from these important changes, it only requires you to update your airframe configuration document once. After you have updated, you should not notice the significant reorganization that is going on behind the scenes. This change will benefit your aircrafts flying successfully for the years to come. The required changes are described on [[User/AirborneCodeReorg| Update Your Airframe Configuration]].
 
 
 
At this point several developments are blocked because of this. Therefor we kindly request you to upgrade your airframe configuration documents as soon as possible and thank you in advance for doing so.

He had dedicated the last seven years of his life to the success of the project. He was taking care by himself of a huge part of the project.

Pilot a super rotorcraft!
So far all my results with rotorcraft were in simulation… until now! In this experiment, performed at TU-Delft (thanks Ewoud Smeur!), a team of four rotorcraft behaves as a single unit. The proved stability properties of the whole system allows for applications such as collaborative transportation of objects. If you want to know the mathematical … Continue reading Pilot a super rotorcraft!
