SIP 0.4.0 release candidate 1 is out for public testing. Generic sourcecode is available, as well as an easy-to-install binary for GNU/Linux systems. Windows binaries will be released soon. Grab the new version in the Download section.
SIP reads/writes images in formats like JPEG, PNG, and BMP. It does filtering, edge detection, morphology, and shape analysis. Homepage:
Compilation and installation is suited for Linux, but should
workcorrectly in other unix systems. I use Slackware Linux 9.1.
Please report to the list any problems that you see with SIP in other distros.
You shall install the new SIP version over the older ones
without problems, but if you want, you can remove the old version
like this: in the unix shell, change dir to the old SIP-dev then type
prompt# make uninstall
Also please comment out any "exec ...loader.sce" instructions from your ".scilab" startup file before installing a new version.
