MITK ReleaseNotes 2013.12

This is the 2013.12 release of the MITK release cycle. The complete list of new features, bug fixes and known issues is down on this page.

What's included?

There are binary installers for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux which contain the application MITK Workbench. Additional to image loading/saving and level windowing currently the following plugins are included:

  • volume visualization
  • measurement
  • interactive segmentation with
    • 3D Regiongrower
    • Boolean Operation on segmentations
    • Deformable Clippingplane
  • Logging view
  • experimental DICOM Query/Retrieve (based on components from the Common Toolkit CTK)
  • Also this time there has been a lot of work on improving the MITK IGT library which is available in the MITK source code.

Please note that the installers do not contain the source code or header files for the precompiled libraries. To develop applications or plugins with MITK please get the source code.

How to get it?

Please have a look at the download page.

Highlights of 2013.12 release

  • General:
    • Minor VTK version update from 5.10.0 to 5.10.1
    • /!\ The classes QmitkVtkHistogramWidget and QmitkVtkLineProfileWidget are now deprecated and won't be built with VTK 5.10.1. You can still use a lower VTK version if you need these classes but be aware that with the next MITK release they will be removed completely
    • Updated CTK to the latest version
  • Core library:
    • MITK dicom editor's user interface got some improvements and uses now the new ctkDicomBrowsing widgets
  • Segmentation:
    • Added new data structure called mitkContourModelSet which allow the storage of a set of ContourModels. The former mitkContourSet is now deprecated.


In the 3 months since the last release more than 140 bugs were fixed.

Not everything could be fixed in time, so here are the most important known issues
