Voreen (Volume Rendering Engine) Version 4.0 Released

Jun 22, 2012

Voreen 4.0 integrates ITK for a wide range of ready-to-use filtering and segmentation algorithms. Runtime editing of OpenCL kernels for volume and image processing has been added and GLSL shaders of most processors can now be modified using a shader property. In addition, the multi-view capabilities have been extended. The volume classes have been re-designed for improved meta-data support, including handling of spacing, transformations and units. A new, vastly improved DICOM reader based on GDCM library has been implemented that supports JPEG 2000 compressed DICOMs, direct reading from PACS servers and is configurable using XML. Registration in Voreen is now also a lot easier for the developer and user. On the technical side, we have switched to the CMake build system resulting in a much smoother build process, especially on Windows. Furthermore, a pre-compiled 64-bit version of Voreen for Windows is provided.
