The source distribution for ITK can be obtained in two ways:

  1. Official release tarballs
  2. Snapshot from CVS

1. Official Releases

Download page

Linux Package Distributions




 sudo apt-get install libinsighttoolkit3-dev

2. CVS Snapshots

Since many bug fixes and improvements are invariably applied to the source since an official release, it is often worthwhile getting a source snapshot from CVS. However, before doing so you should always consult the NightlyDashboard to see the latest nightly build status for all platforms. Find a build matching your platform, and ensure that it is all green. If not, some unit tests may have failed and you may need to go back a day or so to find a build that has passed green.

The very first time you access the ITK CVS repository, you must log in:

cvs -d login

When prompted for a password, simply press Enter (it is empty).

To check out ITK itself:

cvs -d co Insight

To check out the Insight documentation (warning: this is huge):

cvs -d co InsightDocuments

Numerous sample applcations, some simple and some quite sophisticated, are available from InsightApplications:

cvs -d co InsightApplications

Here are the known release tags (use with cvs -r):

  • `ITK-2-0-1` for release 2.0 branch, patch 1.
  • `ITK-2-0` for release 2.0 branch.
  • `ITK-1-8-1` for release 1.8 branch patch 1.
  • `ITK-1-8` for release 1.8 branch.
  • `ITK-1-6` for release 1.6 branch.
  • `ITK-1-4` for release 1.4 branch.
  • `Release-1-2` for release 1.2 branch.
  • `Release-1-0` for release 1.0 branch.
  • `Release-0_7` for beta release 0.7 branch
