Moving CVS to siptoolbox.sf.net

This project's CVS branch will be moved as a sub-package of siptoolbox (siptoolbox.sf.net). It will still remain an independent C library, but administratively it will be part of a bigger project called SIP.

Animal 0.14.0 released

Animal is An IMAging Library for C. It has some advanced image analysis and segmentation routines. Animal unites ImageMagick's broad image format support with high-end scientific algorithms in a single easy-to-use library. It is functional but still in alpha stage and is scarcely documented.

This release brings new hsv2rgb and rgb2hsv functions to convert to/from the RGB colorspace. It also has minor improvements.... read more

Animal 0.13.0 released

Animal is An IMAging Library for C. It has some advanced image analysis and segmentation routines. Animal unites ImageMagick's broad image format support with high-end scientific algorithms in a single easy-to-use library. It is functional but still in alpha stage and is scarcely documented.

This release brings a new imwrite routine supporting over 80 image formats. We also eliminated the dependence on the Gandalf-library. It was too difficult to build/install and because we started merging it into animal.... read more

Animal 0.11.0 released

Animal is An IMAging Library for C. It has some advanced image analysis and segmentation routines. Animal unites ImageMagick and other powerful libraries in a single easy-to-use library. It is functional but still in alpha stage
and is little documented.

This release brings a new fast & exact Euclidean Distance
Transform algorithm by Saito & Toriwaki. We also made
important improvements to Cuisenaire's EDT.... read more

AnImaL 0.10.8 released

Animal is An IMAging Library for C. It has some advanced image analysis and segmentation routines. Animal unites ImageMagick and other powerful libraries in a single easy-to-use library. It is functional but still in alpha stage.

In this version, we fixed some severe distribution/compilation bugs present in 0.10.7,
as well as some other minor bugs.

+ thx to Dean S. Messing: I added src/Makefile.am and
src/Makefile.in to the distro, which were missing in the previous
version due to my mistake with Automake. -- Ricardo.
+ fixed bug in Cuisenaire's Euclidean Distance Tranform
+ imshow now works normally for constant images; default scaling
is now done considering the range of each image pixel type.... read more

Gandalf 1.3.2 Compilation SOLVED

There were some nasty problems regarding OpenGL (which is used by gandalf). Luckily these problems could be worked-around and we can now compile Animal with Gandalf (wich uses OpenGL).

If you had problem configuring Animal with Gandalf 1.3.2,
you probably have an NVIDIA video card with its OpenGL
libraries (which have some small but annoying bugs)

Animal download problem - solved

there was a download problem with the animal library at Sourceforge.
I uploaded the files again and it is now woking.

This was an obscure problem with Sourceforge regarding projects
starting with "a"..

Animal is An IMAging Library in C, which unifies many other computer vision libraries and has its own routines, too. But be warned: it is still in ALPHA stage.

fixed bug in watershed. Markers were not handled correctly.

Animal 0.7.0 Released!!

This release brings us many advances. There are new morphological tools such as Watershed segmentation with markers and regional minima detection. Moreover, the IFT (Image Foresting Transform) code was greatly enhanced, making it possible to easily write many other operators, such as geodesic border following, color image segmentation, and more.

Animal 0.6.2 released!

Version 0.6.2 of An IMAging Libray is a bugfix release.

Animal 6.0.1 released!

This is a minor but important release. It adds robust detection for the Gandalf library (http://gandalf-library.sf.net). It also adds a --disable-debug option to configure, so that you can make the code faster once you assure it is working.

0.6.0 released

This release adds a state-of-the-art extremely efficient Exact Euclidean Distance Transform algorithm (Lotufo-Zampirolli).
It also started interfacing with the Gandalf library (http://gandalf-library.sf.net). But remember, Animal is still beta software.
