Suggested Items

Updating 3rd Party Libraries

It will be desirable to update the versions of the current libraries. There are several reasons for this. First, many of the 3rd party libraries are often updated to fix security vulnerabilities; without these fixes applied, ITK is vulnerable to publicized bugs. Second, the newer versions of libraries have generally better support for 64 bit, which has only recently become mainstream.
