The Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit (ITK), is an open-source,
cross-platform library for multidimensional image analysis. On behalf of the
Insight Toolkit community, we are proud to announce that ITK 4.11.0 has been

Developed by an international community, ITK collects best-of-breed algorithms
for registering, segmenting, analyzing, and quantifying n-dimensional imaging
data. The high-quality library facilitates reproducible research, provides a
software resource for teaching image analysis, and offers a platform for
commercial product development.

A few selected highlights for the 4.11 release include the following:

  - Remote Modules were added to: perturb mesh vertices with additive gaussian
    noise, accurately benchmark computational performance, perform principal
    components analysis of scalar, vector, and mesh vertex data, create a
    run-length encoded memory compression scheme for itk::Image, run N-D
    morphological contour interpolation, interpolate multi-label images,
    iterate over multiple images simultaneously, and compute inverse
    displacement fields.

  - NumPy bridge support is now enabled by default with NumPy array views of
    multi-component images and VNL vectors and matrices.

  - Internal HDF5 was updated to the latest upstream version along with a
    number of other third-party libraries.

Congratulations and well done to the 31 contributors to this release. We would
especially like to recognize new contributors: Hastings Greer, Gilles
Filippini, Thien Nguyen, Caspar Goch, Mayeul Chassagnard, Somesh Kashyap,
Simon Rit, Pierre Barbier de Reuille, and Maeliss Jallais

This release introduces a new template class export specification macro,
ITK_TEMPLATE_EXPORT. The macro should be used with templated classes to
address failing dynamic_cast's and exception catching across binaries on Mac

Bugs were addressed and improvements were made to how the pseudo-random number
generator is used. Tests that rely on the random number generator can restore
deterministic behavior by explicitly setting the global seed at start:

121212 );

However, preferred practice is to set the seed at the algorithm level. The
following methods can be used for this purpose:

 void itk::ImageToImageMetric< … >::ReinitializeSeed( int seed )
 void itk::ImageRegistrationMethodv4< …
>::MetricSamplingReinitializeSeed( int seed )

To improve randomness, new instances of the generator start from a different
seed; some minor differences in the output of algorithms that use the
generator, such as the ITKv3 mutual information metrics and
ImageRegistrationMethodv4’s metric sampling point set, should be expected.

Additionally, output may change for registration with composite affine
transforms; the v4 registration framework now uses corner sampling as opposed
to random sampling to estimate their parameter scales.

New Features

* Wrapping Improvements
  - Python GetArrayFromImage() and GetImageFromArray() from ITKBridgeNumPy are
    directly accessible from the Python itk namespace.
  - The itk package loads much faster: individual modules are loaded only when
  - Conversion of ITK images from and to NumPy array using Bridge NumPy
    supports RGB, RGBA, and Vector images.
  - VNL vectors and VNL matrices can be converted from and to NumPy objects
    with respectively the new couple of functions
    GetArrayFromVnlVector()/GetVnlVectorFromArray() and
  - The global timestamp is used across all ITK Python modules when built
  - Wrap additional classes such as KernelFunctionBase
  - itk_python_add_test CMake function added for Python script testing in ITK
