New Logitech QuickCam Software Release (11.7)

Summary:Logitech has released a new version (11.7) of their QuickCam software package.

Logitech has released a new version (11.7) of their QuickCam software package. It is not yet being offered automatically by their webcam support web page, but it can be downloaded from their FTP site:

ftp://ftp.logitech.com/pub/techsupport/quickcam/qc1170.exe

There is also a 64-bit version available (qc1170_x64.exe). The package contains new drivers for most of their currently available webcams, and a new QuickCam application software release.

There is at least one piece of very good news in this release for those who use Logitech webcams with Video IM programs. They have added a new option to prevent the QuickCam "Ribbon" from popping up every time the camera is accessed.

For those who like to "peek ahead", there appears to be support for at least four or five new webcams in this software, including what looks like two new "series" (Exxxx and Sxxxx) and a new model of the Communicate Deluxe.
