C++ Libraries for Computer Vision Research and Implementation
VXL is a free and open source collection of C++ libraries that will help in computer vision research and implementation. VXL is written in ANSI/ISO C++ and is designed to be portable over many platforms.
The core libraries in VXL are:
В· vnl (numerics): Numerical containers and algorithms. e.g. matrices, vectors, decompositions, optimisers.
В· vil (imaging): Loading, saving and manipulating images in many common file formats, including very large images.
В· vgl (geometry): Geometry for points, curves and other elementary objects in 1, 2 or 3 dimensions.
В· vsl (streaming I/O), vbl (basic templates), vul (utilities): Miscellaneous platform-independent functionality.
As well as the core libraries, there are libraries covering numerical algorithms, image processing, co-ordinate systems, camera geometry, stereo, video manipulation, structure recovery from motion, probability modelling, GUI design, classification, robust estimation, feature tracking, topology, structure manipulation, 3d imaging, and much more.
Each core library is lightweight, and can be used without reference to the other core libraries. Similarly, the non-core libraries don't depend on more than absolutely necessary, so you can compile and link just the libraries you really need.

What's New in This Release:В· Promoted brl/bbas/vidl2 to core/vidl. This replaces the old vidl (now vidl1).
В· Renamed core/vidl to core/vidl1. vidl1 is now deprecated.
В· Added a new library to core!
В· vpdl is a probability distribution library unifying and merging the
В· functionality of the contrib libs brl/bbas/bsta, mul/vpdfl, mul/pdf1d.
В· Doxygen based html or TeX output can now be generated through CMake
В· Consistent, HW-accelerated vnl_math_round for half-integers.
В· A long-standing bug in vnl_bignum has been fixed
В· more tolerant constructor from istream for several vgl classes
В· (e.g. parentheses, commas).
В· Added class vgl_ellipsoid_3d to vgl/algo.
В· Added vnl_power.h : function to raise square matrix to integer power.
В· Bug fixes in the TIFF, PNM and IRIS image file format writers which
В· allows them now to correctly write cropped images.
System Requirements:В· CMake
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
