Eventual release of Unshake 1.5.
I am sad to hear of the untimely death of Frank di Marzio, without
whose enthusiasm for this project, the latest release might not have seen the Big Wide World. My heart goes out to the family he left behind.

Second UK Patent, GB2377842, granted for Unshake's core algorithms.

A minor revision, version 1.4, release 2:
- The program runs as soon as it is launched, without the initial dialogue.
- The sample images in the source directory have been updated for the new version, and explained in the file Instructions.html.

Whoops! I missed out a file from the distribution, "maclaunch.sh", so users of Mac OS X were unable to launch the program. Now sorted.

Unshake 1.4 "release 1" released.
It has a new phase-recovery algorithm, which I have been working on since before New Year.
I have made it easier to use. (Redundant controls have been removed, and the algorithm is mostly automatic now.)
- It allows you to choose from which part of the image the blur will be calculated. (E.g. you can concentrate on background.) This may be the most useful part of all.
- It has an in-built timer, which allows you (approximately) to control how long it will work before giving a result.

Added a page explaining what blind deconvolution is, and giving an idea of how Unshake works.

Frank Di Marzio, an Australian physicist informs me that he has had a press article about Unshake accepted in Australia. He's now looking for publishers in other countries. Suggestions anyone?

At the request of a user (honest!) I've added a PayPal button to the site, in case anyone wants to contribute to the development of Unshake. Anything I get from it will be funnelled into buying equipment for developing the code - starting with a computer faster than 150 MHz!
But nothing happened with this PayPal idea, so perhaps I missed the boat, or some instruction from PayPal :-)

Second UK patent application published, GB 2 377 842 A, which details how Unshake 1.3 works. I hope that eventually I'll manage to produce a web-page explaining it.
