Open Volume Library

The OpenVL library is a framework for working with 3D volumetric datasets. It provides a standard and uniform API to volumetric data access, storage, and processing. It is designed and built to be fast, extensible, flexible, and easy to use. The library is completely open-sourced and encourages contribution. This library is an ideal choice if you want to write applications that deal with 3D volumes.

Release Notes: This release adds more plugins: region grow offsets, PGM Vol FileIO, and fixes to the Thresholder plugin. In addition, interpolation is now done via plugins (which means you can easily add new interpolation methods). The Nearest Neighbor interpolation plugin is available; TriLinear and others will follow. When you update, make sure you update the library and the plugins. With this release, you will also get a program called "vlquery" which you can run on an OpenVL plugin file to get more info about that plugin.
