Description newstzpz 2014-05-05 10:50:47 UTC
In the function QuaternionBase<Derived>::setFromTwoVectors() (file Quaternion.h line 587), I think the scalar -1 in the code 

    c = max<Scalar>(c, -1);

should be casted to Scalar like the following

    c = max<Scalar>(c, Scalar(-1));

as other scalars were done in the code.

This would be helpful for some scalar types like ceres::Jet. A compile error will occur if it is not casted.

Fixed in devel and 3.2.

Thanks for the report
