For those interested in loop closing place recognition and appearance  
based SLAM

The Fast Appearance Based Mapping (FABMAP)  toolset is available for  
download and use from :

www.robots.ox.ac.uk/~mobile (on the software page)

The C++ API provided allows you to send regular images to the FABMAP  
algorithm and it then returns to you a pdf over places (including the  
"new place"). We would be delighted to receive feedback about this  
release and hope it can be of use to the community.
