OTB 8.0.0 release candidate n°3

Dear all,

A third release candidate for OTB version 8.0 is available !

The associated binary packages can be downloaded from the website package page :

  • OTB-8.0.0-rc3-Win64.zip for Windows 64 bits
  • OTB-8.0.0-rc3-Linux64.run for Linux
  • OTB-8.0.0-rc3-Darwin64.run for Mac OS X

The git tag associated to this release candidate is 8.0.0-rc3. It is also possible to checkout the branch with git:

git clone https://gitlab.orfeo-toolbox.org/orfeotoolbox/otb.git OTB -b release-8.0

The main changes since rc3 are bug fixes, specially for SAR sensors.

:warning:It also comes with an unexpected break in the API: thanks to Nicolas Narçon and Remi Cresson who proposed an improvement in the ComputeImageStatistics application, the -xml parameter becomes -out.xml. This change was not announced in the previous version of OTB, don’t forget to update your scripts if you use this application. The reason of this change is the arrival of 4 new output parameters: -out.mean, -out.std, -out.min and -out.max. You will notice that the application is now able to compute the min and max of the image.

The documentation for OTB 8.0.0 can be found here . In particular, a release note and a migration guide may help you to upgrade your filters and applications.

We welcome your feedbacks and requests on the forum and on GitLab !

The OTB team.
