Dear SCIRun users,

We are pleased to announce the completion of SCIRun 4.2 with new meshing tools. SCIRun 4.2 is now available as a binary download for Windows and OS-X and as a source download for Linux and now incorporates our newest software tool called BioMesh3D.

The new binaries and source tar balls can be downloaded from:

Press download SCIRun and select the distribution for your platform.

The new version now includes the first beta version of BioMesh3D, an automated meshing pipeline for building tetrahedral meshes for biomedical applications. SCIRun 4.2 also contains new features and bug fixes and has been internally redesigned to allow for smoother interactions with the Tcl/Tk interface and contains several bug fixes to support the newer Linux distributions.

SCIRun 4.2 and BioMesh3D  ON LINUX:

Please download the SCIRun_4.2 source tar ball. After unzipping the application run the build script called, which should build both SCIRun 4.2 and BioMesh3D. On Linux BioMesh3D is a series of python scripts that run various SCIRun applications to build a tetrahedral mesh. Documentation is provided inside the tar ball on the details of building meshes with BioMesh3D.

SCIRun 4.2 and BioMesh3D  ON OSX:

For OS-X there is a binary distribution for intel based macs. The binary download provides both the SCIRun application as well as the BioMesh3D application, which is a drag and drop application for building meshes. Documentation on running the mac application is provided inside the SCIRun 4.2 disk image. Note: SCIRun 4.2 currently does not compile on Snow Leopard, we hope to announce a patched version for this new operating soon. The binaries should work on Snow Leopard.

SCIRun 4.2 and BioMesh3D ON WINDOWS:

For Windows there are binaries available as well. Currently BioMesh3D is installed together with SCIRun in the SCIRun 4.2 directory. We are still planning on adding shortcuts to the installer for a more automated version of BioMesh3D. Currently Python version 2.x needs to be installed separately on Windows in order to run BioMesh3D, and BioMesh3D needs to be run from the command prompt. More details can be found in the BioMesh3D documentation.

As we want to keep to improve our software, suggestions and bug reports are always welcome.

We hope that this new version of SCIRun will continue to serve the scientific community.

The SCIRun Development Team
