Hi All,

I have noticed that newer versions of OpenCV (latest one is 243) than the one used in with SimpleCV 1.3 have introduced performance enhancements as well as better GPU support. Is it possible to replace the opencv installed with SimpleCV with a newer one?

What is recommended in this regard?

Please guide...

I have been using OpenCV fine recently. The reason we use 2.3 is because that is what has been bundled as installers on windows, mac, or linux. You can always compile opencv and run the latest. Not much has changed and I think everything pretty much works for now. When compiling you don't have to use the -DWITH_PYTHON=ON anymore for the cmake, but you do need to make sure that python-dev is installed to make sure the opencv python bindings are built.

Generally you should be okay if none of the API calls change. We will probably try to lock releases with OpenCV later in the year. In the mean time I would give it a shot and let us know what you find out.
