The Source

The Kitware Source is a quarterly newsletter for developers designed to deliver detailed technical articles, information on recent releases and upcoming changes related to Kitware's open source products. This includes information on The Visualization Toolkit, ParaView, The Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit, CMake (Software Process), and KWWidgets.  This newsletter is just one of a suite of products and services that Kitware offers to assist developers in getting the most out of our open-source products. Each project website contains links to free resources including mailing lists, documentation, FAQs and Wikis. In addition, Kitware offers technical books and user's guides, consulting services, support contracts, and training courses.

The digital version of the Source is now an interactive blog. We will be keeping all HTML pages on the website, but new issues will be put directly on the Source blog. This format will enable a more interactive reader experience with the ability to subscribe to specific topics or authors and participate in discussions through the comment feature.

In an effort to reduce our environmental impact, starting in 2014 Kitware will provide physical copies of the Kitware Source via postal mail only to our subscribers in North America. As always, you can access the Kitware Source online via our Source Blog or as a PDF from our website. Thank you for being a part of our open source communities!
