January 17th, 2018 - Alpha release of GemSuite

So the official Alpha debugging stage of GemSuite started today. The team already found a number of OS-related issues, which have been mostly fixed. The GemSuite infrastructure works as expected under MacOS X from version 10.4 up to at least version 10.13, which is really good news for the Apple users among the faceters community. We're looking into the mishaps of Windows now, it works under Seven straight away (tested on my wife's laptop) but we need to look more closely into Windows 10 which seems to behave differently. Once the infrastructure is settled with proper functionality, we'll start looking into the Scanner module, for which I already know that Linux support will be limited (no direct webcam support alas). More to come as this first pre-release stage develops.
