ITK 4.7.2 has been released!

On behalf of the Insight Toolkit Community, we are happy to announce the release of ITK 4.7.2!

 

Get it Now!

This is a patch release that fixes critical issues, regressions, important documentation, and compiler support. The 4.7.2 release addresses use of the LevelSetsv4 framework with libc++, which is now the default C++ standard library when building with MacOSX Xcode.  A long standing convergence bug in the LBFGSB optimizer has been resolved.  Improved support for building with VTK 6.2.0 and VTK Git master was also added. A number of other issues were addressed — see the changelog below for details.

 

Congratulations and thanks to everyone who contributed to this release. Questions and comments are welcome on the ITK mailing lists. The next feature release of 4.8.0 is scheduled for the end of June, and it will feature many exciting enhancements!

 

Enjoy ITK!
