This release as been delayed because of a bug in the acquisition server. More information about this bug can be found on the dedicated forum topic in the NEWS section.
=== 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
* Real-time visualization of brain activity in 2D or 3D

=== What changed since 0.5.0 ? =======================
In this new release, you will find the following modifiactions (+ for adds, * for modifications, - for removes) :
- + Lucie Daubigney contributed a new driver : g.Tec's gMobiLab+ acquisition device for Linux
+ We added a new driver : Micromed SD LTM (through SystemPlus Evolution)
+ We added impedance check to the drivers that could support it
+ We updated the sample scenarios
+ We added a Confusion Matrix computation box
+ We added a Matrix Display box
+ We added a Lua stimulation box
+ We reenabled VR demos as default
* We enhanced the visuals of the VR demos and added a few stats to make the experience more entertaining
* We refactored the acquisition server so the server itself runs in a separate thread for better performances
* We corrected some bugs on the acquisition server that caused desynchronisations
* We moved to Ogre 1.7 for 3D display
* We moved to Boost 1.41
* We updated the online documentation and tutorials
* We updated many documentation pages
* We fixed lots of bugs !
- We removed OpenMASK / OBT dependency
Here is a snapshot of what we are currently doing and what you can expect from the next release(s) :
- + A Neuroscan acquisition driver
+ A MitsarEEG acquisition driver
+ An EGI acquisition driver
+ More tools dedicated to plugins developpers (base classes, code generators etc...)
+ More tools dedicated to authors / designer users
+ A more general matrix operations box
We want to thank Lucie Daubigney for her contribution to the g.Mobilab+ driver.
Feel free to join us and to contribute as Lucie and
others are doing... http://openvibe.inria.fr/?q=contributions !
Looking forward to hearing your feedback, we hope you'll enjoy working with OpenViBE as we do.
