It’s been grand at  Wordpress.com (thank you thank you), but we have decided to fold the DeVIDE news blog into our TU Delft Computer Graphics and Visualization blog as a special category. Go here for the DeVIDE blog posts, and here for the ATOM feed to subscribe.

DeVIDE 12.2.7 sees the light of day!

with 3 comments

Ok people, it finally happened! We have managed to squeeze out a brand-new “stable” release of DeVIDE, about 2.5 years since the previous one.

First check the list of major changes since the previous release, then go to the website frontpage to see if you agree with the list of features that we have compiled, then download yer binaries from the downloads page!

Enjoy!

  • p.s. Please send me nice screenshots. Stories of how you’re using the software would also be awesome.
  • p.p.s. Don’t forget to cite the DeVIDE paper if you find it useful in your work. 🙂

I’ve just posted a new screencast that shows how easy it is to starting programming Python with VTK, ITK, numpy, wxpython and more in the Eclipse development environment.

Here’s the screencast:

We’re now using Mercurial distributed version control system

leave a comment »

We recently converted the whole of the DeVIDE SVN source code history (around 4000 changesets) to Mercurial distributed version control system (DVCS). DVCS makes it much easier for developers to cooperate, and generally greatly streamlines the source code version control process.

The conversion was surprisingly painless. We made use of hg convert according to this description on Google Code (option 2, full history conversion).

Today we wanted to split out johannes (our super-useful VTK / ITK / wxPython / Qt / PyOt / SIP / DCMTK / GDCM / numpy / python automatic build system) into its own repository. I was expecting pain, but it turned out to be this easy:

hg clone https://code.google.com/p/devide/
hg convert --filemap filemap.txt devide johannes
cd johannes
hg push https://code.google.com/p/devide.johannes/

filemap.txt contains the following:

include johannes
rename johannes .
include johannes-extra
rename johannes-extra extra

What this did, was go through the whole cloned DeVIDE repository at LIGHTING speed (it’s local right) and strip out all the johannes and johannes-extra bits. It then went and created a new repo containing the johannes bits at top-level, and the johannes-extra bits in a subdir extra of the new repo, all with complete history.

If you want a checkout of johannes, just do:

hg clone https://code.google.com/p/devide.johannes/

How to use Eclipse / PyDev with your DeVIDE / DRE code

leave a comment »

I’ve recently added two scripts to the DeVIDE repository that enable one to use Eclipse and PyDev on one’s DeVIDE or even DRE (VTK, ITK, numpy, wxPython) code with full code completion and whatnot.  See the newly written help page for more details.

Today I’ve made test builds (r4026) of the forthcoming 11.x release available for Windows 64 and Linux 64. First check out the snazzy new interface:

Snazzy new 11.x interface on Windows 64. Note that matplotlib and numpy are now included!

Then get the test binaries from the download page under “Test binaries” and please let me know how it goes, either in the comments to this blog, or in the bug tracker. Let me know especially which bugs you really want to see fixed in the next release.

For a compact list of changes, see the summary changelog.
