Febuary 2018, new BrainVISA release: version 4.6.0

  • General:

    • Windows version has been fixed
    • Windows 64 bits version
    • Stopped the Fedora-4 32 bits version. All linux builds are in 64 bits.
  • Anatomist:

    • Supports object of any dimensionality (not limited to 4D any longer)
    • Partial support for CIFTI connectivity matrices
    • New referentials window, rewritten in 3D
    • Windows snapshots of any dimension, rendered off-screen
    • Save/reload fusion objects and multiple objects (.aobj format)
    • Display normals of a mesh
    • Display vector fields
    • Many other fixes and smaller improvements
  • Coming soon

    • Constellation, the connectivity-based parcellation toolbox for BrainVisa, is still a bit delayed because of recent changes, and to allow us to ship an atlas with it. We hope it will be released soon, before a full new brainvisa release.
    • Highres-Cortex, See the doc. As for

    Constellation the release will be delayed a little bit.

  • Removed obsolete toolbox Connectomist-1

    This toolbox was almost unmaintained for about 10 years. Parts still useful have been integrated in the AIMS library, and in Constellation

  • Notably nothing very important in Morphologist... a few minor improvements in morphologist UI

  • For developers:

    • Ported all libraries to Qt5 or Qt4
    • Support for python3 in a subset of projects (noticeably excluding Axon)
    • Support for C++11 in all C++ libraries, also compiles using LLVM compiler
    • Capsul has notably improved and matured, integration in Axon has also improved (although it is not entirely integrated yet)
    • New development and build system in Docker containers: casa-distro project

See the BrainVISA Changelog for more details.

Febuary 2016, new BrainVISA release: version 4.5.0

  • Morphologist UI: a new simplified interface to the Morphologist pipeline. See the documentation
  • Cortical_surface improvements
  • Anatomist improvements: SurfPaint module, IO formats

See the BrainVISA Changelog for more details.

November 18th, 2013, New BrainVISA release: version 4.4.0

This version allows a more incremental management of databases, allowing incremental updates after distributed computing. A new database organization (fully compatible with the previous one) is also provided. Many graphical and practical improvements have also been added, in addition to "traditional" bug fixes.

Anatomist has also undergone some important improvements, in graphical interactions, as well as some new objects types.

Morphologist provides a reorganized pipeline, and improvements in meshes.

See the changelog for more details.

September 6th, 2012, New BrainVISA release: version 4.3.0

In this version, it is possible to store history information about output data generated by Brainvisa processes. History management can be activated for a database through its expert settings activate_history option. History of data can be consulted via the Database browser.

This version also brings a number of bug fixes, and of improvements.

See the changelog for more details.

Amongst noticeable changes, the Cortical surface toolbox (LSIS/CNRS, Marseille) has also been significantly improved.

New: (2013/11/18) Vobi One, a new toolbox for functional optical imaging, has just been released by the INT/CRNS in Marseille. See the toolboxes page, or the dedicated web site.

February 16th, BrainVISA bugfix update: version 4.2.1

This version brings a few bug fixes, and minor improvements.

See the changelog for more details.

February 3rd, 2012, New BrainVISA release: version 4.2.0

In this version, it is very easy to do parallel computing in BrainVISA. Indeed, Soma-workflow has now been completely integrated in BrainVisa: processes (pipelines) may be run through a "Run in parallel" button, which allows to dispatch processing across local processors, or on a remote computing resource. A specific GUI allows to control and monitor all executions. Change the user level to Advanced or more in BrainVISA preferences to use this new feature. More information in the BrainVISA manual.

See the changelog for more details.

January 19th, 2012, New release of Soma-workflow: version 2.1

See its main page for details about this new version.

September 14th, 2011, BrainVISA bugfix update: version 4.1.1

This version brings a number of bug fixes, and of minor improvements.

See the changelog for more details.

August 24th, 2011, New release of Soma-workflow: version 2.0

This tool helps submitting parallel computing to various computing resources. See its main page for more details.

July 5th, 2011, New sulci atlas available

A set of 125 sulci labels for both hemispheres was already used in BrainVISA Morphologist toolbox for sulci identification with SPAM method (since BrainVISA v. 3.2.1 ). Now this work is also available as a standard anatomical atlas of cortical folds shaped as a volume of labels in the MNI space.

May 17th, 2011, New BrainVISA release: version 4.1.0

In this version, an important change for the developers should be noted : the build tool used to compile from the source code has changed. We dropped our home-made tool build-config and replaced it with the standard tool CMake, a cross-platform, open-source build system.

This new package compiled with CMake doesn't need an installation step anymore. You just have to download it and uncompress the archive, then it is ready to use. Thus, there is no setup script or program anymore. The cartopack.sh script that used to add the package paths in environment variables have been renamed into bv_env.sh.

The package includes a new tool that helps submitting parallel computing to various computing resources: soma-workflow. The documentation is here.

This version also brings a number of bug fixes, and of improvements, notably a new version of the T1 pipeline named Morphologist which is more robust and efficient.

See the changelog for more details.

November 22nd, 2010, BrainVISA bugfix update: version 4.0.2

This version brings a number of bug fixes, and of minor improvements.

See the changelog for more details.

August 2nd, 2010, BrainVISA bugfix update: version 4.0.1

This version brings a number of bug fixes, and of minor improvements.

See the changelog for more details.

July 22th, 2010, New version of BrainVISA fMRI toolbox : 4.0

The 4.0 release of the fmri toolbox comprises the following new features:

  • Improved and more robust cortical surface-based analysis procedures.
  • Improvements in multi-subjects analysis, such as the introduction of second-level design matrices.
  • Better integration of General Linear Model in the volume and on the surface with high-level operations (group analysis, reproducibilitry assessement, parcellation and functional landmark characterization).

It is compatible with BrainVISA 4.0.

June 15th, 2010, New version : 4.0

This is the first version of BrainVISA using Qt4 API. Be careful, Qt4 API is quite different from Qt3. If some of your own processes use Qt, you'll may have to port them to Qt4 (See Porting to Qt 4 on Qt documentation pages). This version's sources are still compatible with Qt3, so if you compile from the sources, you can still use Qt3. Note that the compatibility will not be guarantueed anymore in BrainVISA 4.1.

This new version also brings a lot of bug fixes and some improvements in user interface.

See the changelog for more details.

January 27, 2010, bugfix update: version 3.2.1

This version brings, as usual, a number of bug fixes, and of minor improvements. A few noticeable changes also, including some improvements in the T1 and Sulci toolboxes, a new simplified Anatomist-based viewer, etc.

See the changelog for more details.

November 05, 2009, New BrainVISA release: version 3.2.0

This new release is mainly due to internal changes and reorganization of our sources repository. This sources repository and web interface for bug tracking are now accessible for open-source parts to contributors. See this page for details.

This release also brings many bug fixes and improvements. See the changelog for more details.
