2018.08.28 Hangout


As usual, we will be having our weekly hangout at 10am EST.

Since we don’t have a specific agenda, I anticipate it will be short.

Anyone is welcome to join to ask questions at https://bit.ly/slicer-googlemeet-hosted-by-kitware 7


During the meeting, we talked about:

  • naming convention for the new VTK/OpenGL/Qt widgets. See https://gitlab.kitware.com/vtk/vtk/merge_requests/4625
    • ideally the VTK widget should do the “right” things and log warnings if needed
  • porting change from ctkVTKAbstractView directly into VTK. As mentioned by @lassoan , we may do that in the future.
  • VTK version could be updated in Slicer automatically every other days so that issues related to Slicer’s use of VTK could be detected promptly
  • volume rendering test in VTK could be improved to better capture Slicer use cases
  • automatic conversion of segmentation to label map for selecting inputs to CLI modules. This is not yet implemented but should be only a few small changes - @ihnorton see updated notes in issue #4400 for details about what would need to be changed

@jcfr I made a few small edits to the notes - thanks for setting up the meeting and taking notes :+1:
