My company, Resonon, is releasing our free (as in beer) software
package, Spectronon. Spectronon is written in python and utilizes
matplotlib, numpy, PIL, and scipy. Spectronon's main purpose is
analyzing hyperspectral data (images with many more bands of color than
the traditional 3: red, green, blue). It can also be useful for more
traditional image processing. Perhaps of most interest here, it is a
quick way to get access to a command line with a bunch of useful
libraries, plotting, and image viewing. It's packaged as a basic exe
installer. There is also a fairly simple plug-in architecture for
extending some of Spectronon's behavior.
As the main developer, I am very thankful for all the good work that
gets put in to all these underlying libraries, and I hope that in
getting this software out for free, it can in turn support more academic
and research applications of python and its libraries. The release will
also help me expose bugs, hopefully get more people interested in
writing plug-ins for Spectronon, and help me learn other ways to improve
the code base. While the source code is not presently open, the API is
open in order to support writing plug-ins.
Here are some screenshots:

Thanks very much. I hope it's a fun ap for folks, and I greatly
appreciate any questions, feedback, or comments as we begin to get this
project off the ground.
