The Orfeo Toolbox team is happy to announce the release of OTB 5.2.1 and Monteverdi 3.0.1. This is a minor release, containing only bug fixes and corrections:
- Mantis-1124: Fix the use of Update_command and reorder the patch commands properly
- Fix some Coverity reports
- Update OSSIM to latest stable and improve version checking during CMake configuration
- Mantis-1096: QuicklookView
- Mantis-1125: Use OTB_APPLICATION_PATH in startup files
- Apply spelling patch from DebianGIS
- Find only required itk components. Patch proposed by Debian.
- Fix mxe gcc dir and list of system dlls exceptions
This release also marks the notable Project Steering Committee decision to switch to a regular release schedule. This means that OTB releases will now happen more regularly and more often (every 3 months) and unfinished features will not postpone a release. To support regular releases, we updated our git workflow and packaging strategies to enable a faster and easier release process.
Source and some binary packages can be downloaded from Orfeo ToolBox website or directly from the git repository. Packages for other distributions (Linux distributions, macports, osgeo4w) are in preparation and summarized and regularly updated on this wiki page.
We welcome your feedback and request, and encourage you to join the OTB community and mailing list. If you think you face a bug, please report it on Mantis: https://bugs.orfeo-toolbox.org.
Congratulations and well done to everyone who contributed to this release.
OTB Dev Team

I am looking forward to use Orfeo Toolbox on its last version on Linux (Ubuntu 14.04). I am specially interested about using the “Generic region merging segmentation” new Module but I don’t know how to install it. Can you please point me in the right direction to get instructions? all I find is how to build it on Windows.
Hi Luis, Generic region merging is a remote module. To use it you need to compile OTB from source and then add the remote module to the OTB tree.
You’ll find more info on how to build OTB from source (pretty easy with superbuild which handle all dependencies) in the OTB software guide:
Don’t hesitate to ask questions to otb-users mailing list.
Next OTB release 5.4 (next week) will come with standalone packages for Windows/Linux/Mac OS X with all the OTB applications and GUI.
Have a look to the release candidate announcement with links to those archives:
On ubuntu there are also bilnary packages in ubuntugis-unstable PPA you can install with apt-get
Check the cookbook for more instructions:

I would like to use OTB for pan sharpening process on remote sensed data from landsat and sentinel 2. I do not know how to install both moneverdi and otb to do my work. I would be pleased if someone could teach me step by step how to make both applications (OTB and Monteverdi) working well. I hope getting an answer as soon as possible.
