  • Insight Applications now submitting
    • Broken: need to use it as an example for the Migration Guide.

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.

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.
