save data file dialogs.

  • (03 July 2008) Add opacity to the surface.  Opacity is

controlled on the Display Control's Surface Miscellaneous page.  Draw VTK models prior to drawing the surface so that the VTK model can be seen when the surface opacity is lowered to allow transparency.  Otherwise the Z-buffer prevents one from seeing VTK models that are within the surface model.

operations so that the random seed can be set for statistical operations.

  • (30 June 2008) File Open Dialog - If both a paint and area color

contains the byte order.  Previously, all IFH volumes were big endian.

  • (29 May 2008) Version 5.6
  • (29 May 2008) Enable the

writing of GIFTI formatted data files.  GIFTI is a standard file format for the exchange of surface-based neuroimaging data.  It was created by the developers of AFNI/SUMS, BrainVisa, BrainVoyager, Caret, CRkit, FreeSurfer, and VisTrails.  Caret is able to read and write GIFTI format coordinate, functional, label, shape, surface, and topology files.  For more information visit

  • (29 May 2008) Corrected problem with Create Spec File Dialog not

using the correct directory.

Files (on the File Menu) is now Loaded File Management.  Not only can the user view and delete files in memory, but the user can also remove columns from node attributes files and also check the modification status of files and save the files.

  • (23 May 2008) Added "caret_command -image-resize" to resize

images including settings the resolution (dots per inch/meter).

  • (22 May 2008) Add a search coordinate to each focus.  When

foci have been projected to the PALS atlas, the foci may be in several stereotaxic spaces.  So, during projection to the PALS atlas, a focus' search coordinate is always set to the position of the focus on a FLIRT surface.  During normal foci projection (to a surface, not PALS), the search coordinate is set to the projected position.  Remove spatial search surfaces from the Foci Search page on the Display Control.

  • (20 May 2008) Added "caret_command -volume-map-to-vtk-model"

which maps a functional volume to a VTK surface model file.

  • (15 May 2008) Add "Layers->Borders->Duplicate Border By

Name" that makes a copy of a border with a new name.

  • (14 May 2008) Fixed problem with "Links (No Backside)" drawing


  • (12 May 2008) Added "caret_command -surface-border-cutter" which

cuts surfaces using border projections.

  • (12 May 2008) Added a new drawing mode "Tiles With Lighting No

Backfacing Tiles".  With this drawing mode, the backsides of tiles are not drawn which makes missing tiles appear as holes in the surface.

  • (07 May 2008) Add "-surface-inflate" to caret_command for

inflating surfaces.

  • (05 May 2008) Added support for reading GIFTI data files that use

NIFTI_INTENT_NODE_INDEX that indicate the file contains data for only a subset of nodes.

  • (05 May 2008) Add support for multiple transformation matrices

with GIFTI NIFTI_INTENT_POINTSET (coordinate) data arrays.

  • (01 May 2008) Fixed bug in metric clustering so that it ignores

disconnected nodes.  This was found during one-way ANOVA testing.

  • (01 May 2008) Fixed bug in statistical clustering.  If a

metric file was used it would cause a crash.

  • (01 May 2008) Disabled generation of "Sulci ID" paint column in

the SureFit algorithm.

  • (01 May 2008) Added option to GUI and command line

multi-resolution morphing to align the resulting surface to standard orientation.  It requires a border projection that identifies the central sulcus.

  • (25 Apr 2008) Add the "-CHMOD <permissions>" parameter to

ALL caret_command operations.  This allows the user to set the permissions on all files written during the commands operations.

  • (25 Apr 2008) Aded "caret_command -spec-file-directory-clean"

which finds files in the current directory, but that are not in the spec file, and either deletes the files, moves the files, or lists the files.

  • (23 Apr 2008) When creating standard or analysis grid borders,

clear out any existing borders.

  • (18 Apr 2008) Add "caret_command -spec-file-clean" which takes a

spec file name as an argument and removes all entries from the Spec File for which the corresponding file does not exist.

  • (15 April 2008) When writing paint, shape, and area color files

in the SureFit Segmentation Algorithm, give them the description "Initial" rather than the default such as "paint_file_##".

  • (14 April 2008) Rewrote class that runs external programs so that

it is consistent across platforms and can capture output.

  • (09 Apr 2008) Fixed a bug in the volume to surface mapper that,

on occaision, displayed the error "No Volume Provided" when mapping a volume that was stored in a file.

  • (08 Apr 2008) Add the "-CHDIR <directory-name>" parameter

to ALL caret_command operations.  When this parameter is specified, caret_command will run in the specified directory.  It does not affect the current directory of the shell that runs caret_command.

  • (04 Apr 2008) When creating the analysis grid borders, only warn

if the surface is not flat.  After creating the analysis grid borders, turn border display on.

  • (01 Apr 2008) Added "Caret Help (Online)" to the Help Menu. 

This displays the very latest help information from the Caret website.  This help information may be for a version of Caret that is newer than the version the user is running.

  • (01 Apr 2008) Add "caret_command -file-subsitution" which finds

and replaces text in a file.

  • (18 Mar 2008) Add an erase mode to the Draw Border Update

Dialog.  This new mode is used to erase part of a border.

  • (18 Mar 2008) Modify reading of CSV file so that it reads Unicode

instead of ASCII.

  • (17 Mar 2008) Correct update of Foci Attribute Assignment when

paint files are loaded.  Add Cerebellum surface selection to Foci Attrribute Assignment Dialog.

  • (17 Mar 2008) Eliminated warning about modified palette when

trying to create a new scene.
