[SciPy-User] Announcement -- scikit-image 0.16." released

Nelle Varoquaux
Hi All,

On behalf of the scikit-image team I am pleased to announce that scikit-image 0.16.1 has been released (0.16.0 was never released due to necessary last minute fixes). This release contains many bugs fixes and new features!

Please note that we have dropped support for Python 3.5.

Announcement: scikit-image 0.16.1
=================================

We're happy to announce the release of scikit-image v0.16.1!

scikit-image is an image processing toolbox for SciPy that includes algorithms
for segmentation, geometric transformations, color space manipulation,
analysis, filtering, morphology, feature detection, and more.

For more information, examples, and documentation, please visit our website:

https://scikit-image.org

Starting from this release, scikit-image will follow the recently
introduced NumPy deprecation policy, `NEP 29
<https://github.com/numpy/numpy/blob/master/doc/neps/nep-0029-deprecation_policy.rst>__`.
Accordingly, scikit-image 0.16 drops support for Python 3.5.
This release of scikit-image officially supports Python 3.6 and 3.7.

Special thanks to Matthias Bussonnier for `Frappuccino
<https://github.com/Carreau/frappuccino>`__, which helped us catch all API
changes and nail down the APIs for new features.

New Features
------------
- New `skimage.evaluate` module containing simple metrics (mse,
  nrme, psd) and segmentation metrics (adapted rand error, variation of
  information) (#4025)
- n-dimensional TV-L1 optical flow algorithm for registration --
  `skimage.registration.optical_flow_tvl1` (#3983)
- Draw a line in an n-dimensional array -- `skimage.draw.line_nd`
  (#2043)
- 2D Farid & Simoncelli edge filters - `skimage.filters.farid`,
  `skimage.filters.farid_h`, and `skimage.filters.farid_v` (#3775)
- 2D majority voting filter assigning to each pixel the most commonly
  occurring value within its neighborhood -- `skimage.filters.majority`
  (#3836, #3839)
- Multi-level threshold "multi-Otsu" method, a thresholding algorithm
  used to separate the pixels of an input image into several classes by
  maximizing the variances between classes --
  `skimage.filters.threshold_multiotsu` (#3872, #4174)
- New example data -- `skimage.data.shepp_logan_phantom`, `skimage.data.colorwheel`,
  `skimage.data.brick`, `skimage.data.grass`, `skimage.data.roughwall`, `skimage.data.cell`
  (#3958, #3966)
- Compute and format image region properties as a table --
  `skimage.measure.regionprops_table` (#3959)
- Convert a polygon into a mask -- `skimage.draw.poly2mask`  (#3971, #3977)
- Visual image comparison helper `skimage.util.compare_images`,
  that returns an image showing the difference between two input images (#4089)
- `skimage.transform.warp_polar` to remap image into
  polar or log-polar coordinates. (#4097)

Improvements
------------

- RANSAC: new option to set initial samples selected for initialization (#2992)
- Better repr and str for `skimage.transform.ProjectiveTransform` (#3525,
  #3967)
- Better error messages and data type stability to
  `skimage.segmentation.relabel_sequential` (#3740)
- Improved compatibility with dask arrays in some image thresholding methods (#3823)
- `skimage.io.ImageCollection` can now receive lists of patterns (#3928)
- Speed up `skimage.feature.peak_local_max` (#3984)
- Better error message when incorrect value for keyword argument `kind` in
  `skimage.color.label2rgb` (#4055)
- All functions from `skimage.drawing` now supports multi-channel 2D images (#4134)

API Changes
-----------
- Deprecated subpackage ``skimage.novice`` has been removed.
- Default value of ``multichannel`` parameters has been set to False in
  `skimage.transform.rescale`, `skimage.transform.pyramid_reduce`,
  `skimage.transform.pyramid_laplacian`,
  `skimage.transform.pyramid_gaussian`, and
  `skimage.transform.pyramid_expand`. Guessing is no longer performed for 3D
  arrays.
- Deprecated argument ``visualise`` has been removed from
  `skimage.feature.hog`. Use ``visualize`` instead.¨
- `skimage.transform.seam_carve` has been completely removed from the
  library due to licensing restrictions.
- Parameter ``as_grey`` has been removed from `skimage.data.load` and
  `skimage.io.imread`. Use ``as_gray`` instead.
- Parameter ``min_size`` has been removed from
  `skimage.morphology.remove_small_holes`. Use ``area_threshold`` instead.
- Deprecated ``correct_mesh_orientation`` in `skimage.measure` has been
  removed.
- `skimage.measure._regionprops` has been completely switched to using
  row-column coordinates. Old x-y interface is not longer available.
- Default value of ``behavior`` parameter has been set to ``ndimage`` in
  `skimage.filters.median`.
- Parameter ``flatten`` in `skimage.io.imread` has been removed in
  favor of ``as_gray``.
- Parameters ``Hxx, Hxy, Hyy`` have been removed from
  `skimage.feature.corner.hessian_matrix_eigvals` in favor of ``H_elems``.
- Default value of ``order`` parameter has been set to ``rc`` in
  `skimage.feature.hessian_matrix`.
- ``skimage.util.img_as_*`` functions no longer raise precision and/or loss warnings.

Bugfixes
--------

- Corrected error with scales attribute in ORB.detect_and_extract (#2835)
  The scales attribute wasn't taking into account the mask, and thus was using
  an incorrect array size.
- Correct for bias in Inverse Randon Transform (`skimage.transform.irandon`) (#3067)
  Fixed by using the Ramp filter equation in the spatial domain as described
  in the reference
- Fix a rounding issue that caused  a rotated image to have a
  different size than the input (`skimage.transform.rotate`)  (#3173)
- RANSAC uses random subsets of the original data and not bootstraps. (#3901,
  #3915)
- Canny now produces the same output regardless of dtype (#3919)
- Geometry Transforms: avoid division by zero & some degenerate cases (#3926)
- Fixed float32 support in denoise_bilateral and denoise_tv_bregman (#3936)
- Fixed computation of Meijering filter and avoid ZeroDivisionError (#3957)
- Fixed `skimage.filters.threshold_li` to prevent being stuck on stationnary
  points, and thus at local minima or maxima (#3966)
- Edited `skimage.exposure.rescale_intensity` to return input image instead of
  nans when all 0 (#4015)
- Fixed `skimage.morphology.medial_axis`. A wrong indentation in Cython
  caused the function to not behave as intended. (#4060)
- Fixed `skimage.restoration.denoise_bilateral` by correcting the padding in
  the gaussian filter(#4080)
- Fixed `skimage.measure.find_contours` when input image contains NaN.
  Contours interesting NaN will be left open (#4150)
- Fixed `skimage.feature.blob_log` and `skimage.feature.blob_dog` for 3D
  images and anisotropic data (#4162)
- Fixed `skimage.exposure.adjust_gamma`, `skimage.exposure.adjust_log`,
  and `skimage.exposure.adjust_sigmoid` such that when provided with a 1 by
  1 ndarray, it returns 1 by 1 ndarrays and not single number floats (#4169)

Deprecations
------------
- Parameter ``neighbors`` in `skimage.measure.convex_hull_object` has been
  deprecated in favor of ``connectivity`` and will be removed in version 0.18.0.
- The following functions are deprecated in favor of the `skimage.metrics`
  module (#4025):

    - `skimage.measure.compare_mse`
    - `skimage.measure.compare_nrmse`
    - `skimage.measure.compare_psnr`
    - `skimage.measure.compare_ssim`

- The function `skimage.color.guess_spatial_dimensions` is deprecated and
  will be removed in 0.18 (#4031)
- The argument ``bc`` in `skimage.segmentation.active_contour` is
  deprecated.
- The function `skimage.data.load` is deprecated and will be removed in 0.18
  (#4061)
- The function `skimage.transform.match_histogram` is deprecated in favor of
  `skimage.exposure.match_histogram` (#4107)
- The parameter ``neighbors`` of `skimage.morphology.convex_hull_object` is
  deprecated.
- The `skimage.transform.randon_tranform` function will convert input image
  of integer type to float by default in 0.18. To preserve current behaviour,
  set the new argument ``preserve_range`` to True. (#4131)
