*Slicer 5 progress

Feel free to post to this thread to request/suggest a topic!


Sorry as usual I can’t make the meeting.

However, I do have one comment about the transition. Is the document here expected to serve a list of all major changes? If so I am seeing nothing about the recent coordinate system change for exported models and fiducials.

For me that’s a major change, already impacting our workflow. Perhaps a more comprehensive transition guide is necessary, one not just focused on the developer’s point-of-view, but for user functionality as well…


Good point. Probably we missed this from the migration guide because it should not be a backward incompatible change, only in very special cases (since coordinate system information has been recorded in files for several years now). But since there is a chance it may impact some people, I added a section now: https://www.slicer.org/wiki/Documentation/Nightly/Developers/Tutorials/MigrationGuide/Slicer#Models_are_saved_in_LPS_coordinate_system_by_default
