History of MITK

MITK 1.x: Implemented basic encapsulation of data structures and algorithms, which included most fundamental functions of data handling, filtering, segmentation, registration and visualization.

MITK 2.0: The Out-of-Core mechanism was introduced, which supported the buffering of large datasets.

MITK 2.2: Some reconstruction functions were introduced which formed a new branch of the algorithm hierarchy.

MITK 2.3: The project was reorganized with the CMake tool provided by Kitware. The source code as well as the binaries were divided into multiple modules, which simplified the management, and made it possible that more compiling environments were supported.

Currently, MITK is extending itself in multiple aspects including the support of GPU alogorithms in a more flexible framework.
