Orfeo ToolBox 5.4 Release Candidate 1

Dear all,

The OTB Dev Team is happy to announce that next OTB version is on Release Candidate 1. This release candidate contains :

  • OTB 5.4.0 RC1
  • Monteverdi 3.2.0 RC1

As usual, source packages have been uploaded for those who want to give it a try. If you don’t want to go through the compilation yourself, we have also released all-in-one binary packages for Windows, Linux and MacOS X. They contain launchers for Monteverdi and the application launcher Mapla. Check here to download them. The Windows packages are plain zip archives, simply uncompress them. The Linux and MacOS X packages are self-extractable archives : you should move them to the place where you want them installed, and run from a terminal :

sh OTB-5.4.0-rc1-Linux64.run

Here is a snapshot of the new features for this release :

  • In OTB :
    • Integration of Ice as an OTB module
    • First step of the sampling framework : polygon analysis
    • Faster resampling filter
    • More SAR decompositions : Barnes, Huynen, Pauli
  • In Monteverdi :
    • Screenshot function
    • Handling of multi-datasets
    • Handling of overviews
    • New mode without shaders for low OpenGL versions
