scikits-image 0.8.0 (2013-03-04)#

We’re happy to announce the 8th version of scikit-image!

scikit-image is an image processing toolbox for SciPy that includes algorithms for segmentation, geometric transformations, color space manipulation, analysis, filtering, morphology, feature detection, and more.

For more information, examples, and documentation, please visit our website:

New Features#

  • New rank filter package with many new functions and a very fast underlying local histogram algorithm, especially for large structuring elements skimage.filter.rank.*

  • New function for small object removal skimage.morphology.remove_small_objects

  • New circular hough transformation skimage.transform.hough_circle

  • New function to draw circle perimeter skimage.draw.circle_perimeter and ellipse perimeter skimage.draw.ellipse_perimeter

  • New dense DAISY feature descriptor skimage.feature.daisy

  • New bilateral filter skimage.filter.denoise_bilateral

  • New faster TV denoising filter based on split-Bregman algorithm skimage.filter.denoise_tv_bregman

  • New linear hough peak detection skimage.transform.hough_peaks

  • New Scharr edge detection skimage.filter.scharr

  • New geometric image scaling as convenience function skimage.transform.rescale

  • New theme for documentation and website

  • Faster median filter through vectorization skimage.filter.median_filter

  • Grayscale images supported for SLIC segmentation

  • Unified peak detection with more options skimage.feature.peak_local_max

  • imread can read images via URL and knows more formats

Additionally, this release adds lots of bug fixes, new examples, and performance enhancements.
