New release of OpenViBE 0.5.0 "Christmas edition" is now available for download at :

=== Overview =========================================

OpenViBE is an opensource platform that enables to design, test and use Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI). Broadly speaking, OpenViBE can be used in many real-time Neuroscience applications.

The OpenViBE platform stands out for its high modularity. It addresses the needs of different types of users (programmers and non-programmers) and proposes a user-friendly graphical language which allows non-programmers to design a BCI without writing a single line of code.

OpenViBE is portable, independent of hardware or software targets, can run under Windows and Linux and is entirely based on free and open-source software. OpenViBE is compatible with MATLAB programming.

OpenViBE comes with preconfigured scenarios and runs already existing applications such as :
* BCI based on motor imagery
* P300 speller
* Neurofeedback
* Real-time visualization of brain activity in 2D or 3D

OpenViBE is available under the terms of the LGPL-v2+. The whole software is developed in C++. It consists of a set of software modules that can be integrated easily and efficiently to design BCI applications such as for Virtual Reality interaction.

In this new release, you will find the following modifiactions (+ for adds, * for modifications, - for removes) :

+ We added a new driver : brain products vAmp acquisition device
+ We added a new driver : g.Tec's gUSBamp acquisition device
+ We updated the sample scenarios
+ We propose a new P300-based pipeline based on the xDAWN algorithm
+ We added an online comparison of different processing pipelines performance (e.g. multiple classifiers)
* We updated the dependencies installation for windows so that Visual C++ Runtime gets included in the package
* We updated the dependencies installation for windows so that the lack of internet connection does not abort the installation when DirectX is not present
