=== 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 0.6.0 ? =======================
In this new release, you will find the following modifications (+ for adds, * for modifications, - for removes) :
- + Matthieu Goyat contributed the Univariate Statistics box
+ We added a new driver : Neurosky Mindset
+ We added the possibility to comment scenarios in the designer
+ We added some control over the player execution from the boxes
+ We added a box that is able to control the player execution
+ We added more configuration possibilities with the configuration file tokens
+ We added many small "user oriented" features in the designer such as left/right scroll with mouse wheel and better overview of renamed boxes
+ We added a lot of great features to the Simple DSP box - see documentation and sample scenarios
* The acquisition server is now smarter on CPU use
* We reviewed and commented all the box-tutorials and xDAWN p300 speller / motor imagery scenarios
* We alphabetically sorted the stimulations for quicker configuration of the boxes
* We restored automatic filename extension/filtering when loading/saving a scenario
* We corrected a bug on the k-fold test in the classifier trainer
* We updated the online documentation and tutorials
* We updated many documentation pages
* We fixed lots of bugs !
=== What's coming in the next release(s) =============
Here is a snapshot of what we are currently doing and what you can expect from the next release(s) :
- + An EGI acquisition driver
+ More tools dedicated to plugins developpers (base classes, code generators etc...)
+ More tools dedicated to authors / designer users
+ Hopefully, we should support Visual C++ express 2010 and Windows 7
We want to thank Matthieu Goyat for his contribution to the Univariate Statistics box.
We also want to thank all the forum and bug tracker participants who help in making the software better every day.
Feel free to join us and to contribute as Matthieu 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.
The whole team wishes you a nice summer...
