Dlib 18.11 released

The new version of dlib is out. This release contains mostly minor bug fixes and usability improvements, with the notable exception of new routines for extracting local-binary-pattern features from images and improved tools for learning distance metrics. See the release notes for further information.

I also recently found out about two particularly interesting projects that use dlib.  The first is menpo, a Python library focused on computer vision which is being developed by a team at Imperial College London.  If you are interested in a Python library that pulls together a bunch of computer vision tools then definitely check it out.  The other interesting project is Ceemple, which is basically an interactive language shell for C++.  They have integrated a bunch of libraries like dlib and OpenCV into it with the general goal of making C++ development feel more rapid and interactive.  So think of something like MATLAB or IPython, but for C++.

Is it possible to use and to training with different landmark numbers? Both detect 68 landmarks in a frontal face by default. I would like to detect 39 landmarks only (I can train all right using the train_shape_predictor_ex however face_landmark_detection_ex outputs the attached message:

exception thrown!

Error detected at line 25.

Failing expression was dets[i].num_parts() == 68.
