    • PPF (Point-Pair Features)
    • StatisticalMultiscaleInterestRegionExtraction
    • MultiscaleFeaturePersistence
  • improved documentation:
    • sample consensus model coefficients better explained
    • new tutorials (RadiusOutlierRemoval, ConditionalRemovalFilter, ConcatenateClouds, IterativeClosestPoint, KdTreeSearch, NARF Descriptor visualization, NARF keypoint extraction, ConcaveHull, PCLVisualizer demo)
  • new surface triangulation methods:
