The current version of OpenCV has image stitching libraries (http://docs.opencv.org/modules/stitch...) which include methods to create stitched panoramas and similar images. The 1st edition of Learning OpenCV did not mention the image stitching libraries, possibly because they did not exist when that edition was authored (2008).
Will the 2nd edition of Learning OpenCV, to be published in early 2014, include a discussion of the current OpenCV image stitching libraries?

Thanks for your interest in the 2nd edition of Learning OpenCV. I have contacted one of the editors on this title regarding your questions, and when I get information from them I will be in contact with you.
