New Features#

It’s been only 3 months since scikits-image 0.6 was released, but in that short time, we’ve managed to add plenty of new features and enhancements, including

  • Geometric image transforms

  • 3 new image segmentation routines (Felsenzwalb, Quickshift, SLIC)

  • Local binary patterns for texture characterization

  • Morphological reconstruction

  • Polygon approximation

  • CIE Lab color space conversion

  • Image pyramids

  • Multispectral support in random walker segmentation

  • Slicing, concatenation, and natural sorting of image collections

  • Perimeter and coordinates measurements in regionprops

  • An extensible image viewer based on Qt and Matplotlib, with plugins for edge detection, line-profiling, and viewing image collections

Plus, this release adds a number of bug fixes, new examples, and performance enhancements.
