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.

I started working with what we called "analog computers" in aircraft maintenance with the United States Air Force in 1970. After finishing military service and returning to university, I was introduced to microprocessors and machine language programming on Intel 4040 processors. After that I also worked on, operated and programmed Digital Equipment Corporation PDP-8, PDP-11 (/45 and /70) and VAX minicomputers. I was involved with the first wave of Unix-based microcomputers, in the early '80s. I have been working in software development, operation, installation and support since then.

    Update:

    The download links have been removed from the Logitech FTP site, and there was briefly a note in the Logitech User Forums saying that this software release was intended for the new cameras only.

    There seems to have been quite a bit of confusion and uncertainty about this release at Logitech. I will update here again when (if) it is finally released.

    Just an FYI, Logitech QuickCam version 11.8 is now available. Just downloaded it but haven't tested it out yet.

    @larry510 - thanks for the heads-up. I've got it now, and I'm writing a short new blog entry about it.
