Items for followup:

  • The northwestern Slicer download works faster on Linux thatn Windows. Build, as well as rendering is slower. (Katie to follow up with Pat).

From Alex's talk:

  • conventions needed for method names/attribute names. Suggestions from group: XML conventions are reasonable.

Next Steps:

  • Focus on the Base code for the June Beta
    • Use existing MRML structure
      • Save generalizations for a vtk-free versions of MRML until a later refactoring (Mathieu)
      • Add Tensor and DWI nodes as needed (Xiaodong)
      • Finish Slice Logic and Coordinate Systems (Steve)
    • Continue porting of Slicer2 module code to VTK5 (Mathieu)
    • Continue Base slicer ui development and apply newest KWWidgets code (Wendy, Sebastien)
    • Work on porting/redeveloping the Editor as example of Internal Module (Alex)
      • Use this to drive definition of Internal Module startup sequence
    • Develop Command Line Module interface (Jim, Dan)
    • Set up LONI Pipelines as External Modules (Jags, Mike)
    • Integrate CPack and latest CMake (Andy)
    • Set up Dart2 server and Slicer3 dashboard (Andy)
      • Port tests from Slicer2 to Slicer3 (Katie)
    • Work out design of experiments grid testing (Brendan, Bill)
    • Continue to refine code (All)
      • Fix style issues (adopt vtk style for vtk subclasses)
      • Fix memory leaks
