VTK - The Visualization ToolKit

MIDAS Journal - Home - Open Access on-line publication covering different domains from Visualization to Image processing.
The Visualization ToolKit (VTK) is an open source library for visualization. It is written in C++ and has binding for other languages to provide scripting capabilities (Tcl/Tk, Java, and Python).
CMake - Cross Platform Make - if you're compiling on windows, cmake is the way to go....I actually like cmake...

vtk is still being served from cvs, use anonymous and vtk as the password.

ITK: enabling reproducible research and open science
The Kitware Blog - ITK 4.6.0 has been released! - oh the wondrous pace of open code; Skull stripper, Registrationv4, more code coverage (>84%), bug fixes, and examples!
As part of the refactoring of ITKv4, a new testing workflow was added to ITK to enable the testing of patches submitted by the community to the code review system Gerrit. This new system of testing patches works in a distributed way and it is referred to as 'cdash@home'.

CMake - KitwarePublic Wiki
Cross Platform Test Driven Development Environment Using CMake (Part 1)- GameDev.net (Part 2) (Part 3) (Part 4) (Part 5)
sakra/cotire - Cotire (compile time reducer) is a CMake module that speeds up the build process of CMake based build systems by fully automating techniques as precompiled header usage and single compilation unit builds for C and C++.

CDash || testing with CDash

CTest is a testing tool distributed as a part of CMake. It can be used to automate updating code, configuring, building, testing, performing memory checking, performing coverage, and submitting results to a CDash or Dart dashboard system.
open.cdash.org - CDash my.cdash.org - CDash, two dashboards separate accounts.
ITK/Git/Dashboard - KitwarePublic ITK/Testing - KitwarePublic CMake/Git/Dashboard - KitwarePublic
The ctest client is setup the same for many of the projects; cloning the dashboard branch from each of the git repo's provides the basic files needed to ctest your way to dashboard report submission -- contribute and collaborate with the world on software that matters.
CMake - Cross Platform Make - Download release or CMake/Git - build yer own
git clone git://cmake.org/cmake.git
cd cmake;
make; make install;
that gets you cmake and ctest. huzah. now on to the dashboard branch for testing...
mkdir -p ~/Dashboards/CMakeScripts
cd ~/Dashboards/CMakeScripts
git init
git remote add -t dashboard origin git://cmake.org/cmake.git
git pull origin
ctest -S ~/Dashboards/CMakeScripts/my_dashboard.cmake -V
or if you're already got master aka "git checkout -b master origin/master"; you can use "git checkout -b dashboard origin/dashboard" to switch to the dashboard scripts. if they are using the conventions used by most.
