Release 0.4.0

  • Still need to do java packaging

Priorities for next release

  • Registration
  • C++ installation
  • Splitting BasicFilters Library
  • improved vector image support

R Wrapping Follow-up

Organization and Planning

  • JIRA is needed to communicate what people are working on and issues being address.
    • Use R Label
    • Create Some R tickets
  • Need to improve documentation for new developers and add setup script for development environment
    • Staged topic for setting up repo for development

Current Problems

  • There are no dashboard machines contributing R builds
  • R Packaging does not work with Latest requiring documentation fields
  • Automatic Testing is currently not working
  • Generated tests are out of date
  • SWIG support for R is primitive
  • Does R support Objects with methods?
    • Should we only expose the procedural methods?
    • S3 S4 Level objets?
  • R does not appear to have namespaces. Should methods and object be prefixed with sitk?
    • R now requires packages in namespaces
    • name spaces have been available for a while

  • Registration
    • to be major new feature to work on in Febuary
  • C++ installation


  • Discuss long term goals and milestones.
  • Documentations
  • Automate Script to List filters wrapped
    • This script should take as input a list of ITK Modules or Directories, for each modual determine which filters are implemented in SimpleITK
    • Additional input would include filter/files to exclude
    • Output could be a dox file, so that it could be a doxygen related page
  • Registration is very important
