About: The VLFeat open source library implements popular computer vision algorithms including affine covariant feature detectors, HOG, SIFT, MSER, k-means, hierarchical k-means, agglomerative information bottleneck, SLIC superpixels, and quick shift. It is written in C for efficiency and compatibility, with interfaces in MATLAB for ease of use, and detailed documentation throughout. It supports Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The latest version of VLFeat is 0.9.16.Changes:
VLFeat 0.9.16: Added VL_COVDET() (covariant feature detectors). This function implements the following detectors: DoG, Hessian, Harris Laplace, Hessian Laplace, Multiscale Hessian, Multiscale Harris. It also implements affine adaptation, estiamtion of feature orientation, computation of descriptors on the affine patches (including raw patches), and sourcing of custom feature frame. Addet the auxiliary function VL_PLOTSS(). This is the second point update supported by the PASCAL Harvest programme.
VLFeat 0.9.15: Added VL_HOG() (HOG features). Added VL_SVMPEGASOS() and a vastly improved SVM implementation. Added IHASHSUM (hashed counting). Improved INTHIST (integral histogram). Added VL_CUMMAX(). Improved the implementation of VL_ROC() and VL_PR(). Added VL_DET() (Detection Error Trade-off (DET) curves). Improved the verbosity control to AIB. Added support for Xcode 4.3, improved support for past and future Xcode versions. Completed the migration of the old test code in toolbox/test, moving the functionality to the new unit tests toolbox/xtest. Improved credits. This is the first point update supported by the PASCAL Harvest (several more to come shortly).
