I haven’t had the chance to do much NDIToolbox work in the past month or so while I’ve been working on another project in the lab – it did involve lasers and a chance to play with C++ after many years’ absence so I’m not complaining. I did just push out an update this week that might be of interest if you’ve been running into memory problems. Hopefully this version’s a little more thoughtful when it comes to releasing memory it no longer needs.
Also in this version, I’ve added preliminary support for ultrasonic gate functions in the MegaPlot presentation. The functionality’s always been there but I’ve had it disabled until now while I was working out how to apply gates to three-dimensional data; I’m not 100% satisfied with the implementation but thought I’d enable it and come back to it later.
Update Wed Dec 26 12:23:44 CST 2012: managed to sneak some more work in on the project before the end of the year. It’s not in the documentation yet, but I’ve added exporting slices of a data file. Handy if you’re only interested in a subset of a much larger data file.
Finally, if you’ve ever wanted to just see screenshots and read about all of this NDIToolbox stuff instead of having to download everything, I’ve put a mirror of the current documentation up on the site. Have a look at the Quick Start for a primer on what NDIToolbox does, and the Plugins page to find out about…plugins. Developers might also be interested in how to write plugins. Sample plugin code is available that demonstrates how to write a server-based plugin, and how to combine Python with Java or C++.
