Release of version 2.4.4.
Alida and in particular its technical ingredients will be presented at the OGRW 2014, which is the 9th Open German-Russian Workshop on Pattern Recognition and Image Understanding.
The title of the contribution is Design and Implementation of the Alida Framework to Ease the Development of Image Analysis Algorithms.
The workshop is taking place this week in Koblenz/Germany.
Release of version 2.4.3.
Release of version 2.4.2
Some more bugfixes.
Release of version 2.4.1
Bugfixed an annoying problem with keyboard shortcuts.
Release of version 2.4.
Main new feature is the support for progress events of operators. In addition, numerous bugfixes and enhancements in the graphical user interfaces are included.
Release of version 2.3.1.
A serious bug in saving and loading workflows and operator configurations was fixed.
Release of version 2.3.
The project management of the Alida Java project has switched to Maven, i.e. from now on Alida can be downloaded directly from our Maven server.
The new release by itself mainly includes bugfixes in the core of Alida improving the stability.
Alida will be presented at the MVA 2013, which is the Thirteenth IAPR International Conference on Machine Vision Applications.
The title of the contribution is A Framework Unifying the Development of Image Analysis Algorithms and Associated User Interfaces.
The conference will take place in Kyoto/Japan from May 21st to 23rd. We hope to meet you there!
Release of version 2.2.
Grappa has increased its user-friendliness by supporting key shortcuts now. In addition, the mechanism to save and load configurations in Alida

Alida will be presented at the ImageJ User & Developer Conference 2012 to be held at the end of October in Mondorf-les-Bains, Luxembourg.
There will be a poster presentation combined with a demo entitled Automatic Generation of Processing Histories using Alida.
It will provide an introduction to the processing history mechanism implemented in Alida, and its usage.
Also a talk will be given about our new graphical editor Grappa entitled Graphical Programming in Alida and ImageJ 2.0 with Grappa.
New release of chipory ready for download
Alida will be presented at the IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) to be held at the end of April in Barcelona.
There will be a poster presentation combined with a demo at the Bioimage Analysis Workshop on Open Source Software held in conjunction with ISBI.
The title will be ALIDA - Automatic generation of user interfaces for data analysis algorithms.
The Alida concept now features a prototypical implementation in C++! It supports generic operator execution from command line.
Release 0.1 is available now from the download page.
Alida release 1.2 has just been published! You can get the new version in the download section!
