Thanks for catching this! We just made an official update to the post. In short, we changed our plans and decided to take OpenNI2 under our wing, and maintain it for the entire community rather than let it rot and create separate drivers.
Here's our updated post:
A number of people are successfully using OpenNI2 with Structure Sensor now on Linux, Android, and Windows. However, as these platforms evolve, and as new hardware varieties appear, new issues crop up.
We're actively working to stomp out issues on various platforms and devices. Could you let us know what issues you've faced, so we can work to address them directly within OpenNI?
@jim_selikoff, @forrest, and @philnelson in particular have all played a bit with OpenNI2 + Structure on Linux. For starters, please make sure you start with the
develop branch on GitHub, that's where our latest work goes until it is deemed stable.
Let's collaborate to get this working on your system!
