Dan and Mathieu to report

Simple ITK

  • ARB Formed
    • Tcon on Wednesday
  • Design Discussions
  • Sandbox in Github
  • Simple ITK Layer
  • Wrapping for C#
  • Adding more filters

Uncrustify Code Cleanup (Hans)

Please review the branch: It contains the uncrustified version of the code.

  • Add uncrustify and KWStyle to git hooks?

itkStaticConstMacro (Hans)

I'd like to discuss creating a new macro called "itkEnumerationMacro" that will remove nearly all instances of itkStaticConstMacro in the code.

  • Reference materials:
  • In version 3.20 and earlier, this always defaulted to the enumerated type version of the itkStaticConstMacro.
  • The enumeration option for "template defined integer values" makes coding a lot easier
  • The "static const unsigned int" option requires definitions of those variables "outside" the class definition if they are to be used across compliation units (i.e. with explicit instantiation).

Gerrit is ON


Testing Data in MIDAS

Data on MIDAS



Allows to download data on-the-fly, at run-time while running the testing. Data is cached (only downloaded once or when updated).

Sequestered Reference Applications

We have already made significant changes, and they are not being recorded yet. It is time to setup these reference applications.


  • Plans for wrapping
  • Tools
    • Pros and Cons
  • Wrapping
  • update from brad on wrapitk test (new swig usage that addresses existing concerns)?

ITK Readers for Microscopy formats

  • There's a need for readers in the microscopy community in order to be able to use ITK
    • Zeiss (LSM and ZVI)
    • Leica (LIF)
    • Olympus (OIB)
    • Nikon ()
  • BioFormats has readers and example files for these. It is Java with C++ bindings for ITK, BUT it's GPL.

Software Process

Migration to Git

  • Migration Completed
  • Updating Dashboard Machines to Git
  • Contractors to send information to Kitware about the developers who should receive Git write access.
    • (include email and public SSH key)

Clean up Releases

Release Tag Date Major Changes
Alpha-01 August 7 VS6,BCC55, SunCC (5.7?), Metrowerks Removal (based on compiler features), Remove large Images

Coding Style


  • Fixing KWStyle/CDash/CTest for Git : Brad Davis report
  • The Google C+++ Style Guide is a good example of a style guide. Although the specifics may differ, the format and coverage of this guide is very nice. We may consider producing a similar Guide for ITKv4.
