Home < Slicer4:Developers

Do not expect to be able to use this page until late 2010 or early 2011 - many things are changing rapidly within the slicer4 code base so just watch the 'public' developer information, until there is a more definitive set of instructions.

For now, refer to the 3D Slicer Status Presentation from the June 2010 Project Week for planning and transition information.

Work on 3D Slicer version 4 has begun in June of 2010. It is expected that Slicer4 will be released in 2011. Please see the Slicer4 Description Page for detailed information on the current plans.

  • For information about older versions of Slicer, see here.


  • This page of for scientist who write source code, if you want to use a pre-compiled version of Slicer, please go to the download page.
  • Slicer 4 will include a number of fundamental changes to the infrastructure:
    • Qt widgets will replace KWW widgets
    • CMAKE superbuild will replace getbuildtest



(please add your new project to the top of the table)
