From Octave
Jump to: navigation, search

I got involved with Octave on the Winter of 2010, at the end of my first year as PhD student. My project involved using a Matlab piece of code written by a collaborator but I refused to use it, I wanted free software. So I convinced the collaborators to release it under GPL and ported it to Octave (released as frapinator, but I really should go back and write it properly).

Since then, I have contributed to Octave many times, became maintainer of the Octave Forge project and its image package. While I have no formal education in programming or computer science, it was the freedom of Octave and its community that allowed me to learn so much.

Roadmap[edit]

The following are missing targets that would be nice to have on future releases of the image package

  • add ellipse properties to regionprops (see bug #44100) (done)
  • speed up regionprops for large images with many small objects (probably work around for loop with labeled == labelid)
  • support passing bwconncomp output to regionprops (and then fix bwpropfilt to use that instead of a labeled image)
  • ND support on imfilter
  • check if normxcorr2 is Matlab compatible and investigate making use of fftconvn since it's likely to receive large input
  • investigate implementing the missing deconvolution functions (see patch #8571)
  • anything else that is done or submitted before the above are done
