pureImage 2011.05 released

We are proud to announce the third public release of pureImage.

What is pureImage?

pureImage is an open-source cross-language plugin framework, focused on the reuse of freely available image processing libraries. Using pureImage, one can combine and re-use image processing functions, whether originating from different libraries or home-grown code, from different programming languages via a uniform interface. Right now, pureImage can be used under Windows and Linux, from C, C++, and Java. It provides bindings for OpenCV, CImg and other libraries. pureImage is released by the Department of Knowledge-Based Mathematical Systems, Johannes Kepler University Linz, under the terms of the GPL v3.

What's new?

The most important changes and new features of pureImage 2011.05 are:

  • The C and the C++ API now match more closely.
  • We are now using the CMake build system.
  • Therefore, our current test targets are Microsoft Visual Studio 2008, as well as GCC on Ubuntu Linux 10.04.
