I’m happy to announce a new version of mahotas, version 0.7!


New features

The major feature is that scipy is no longer used! The story is that I was without a hard drive for two weeks and didn’t have scipy, so I wrote mahotas to work without it.

The necessary interpolation functions from ndimage have been ported over to mahotas.


  • Local binary patterns were wrongly computed. Fixed
  • GIL handling on error is now correct (reported by Gareth McCaughan)
  • 2D TAS features are now correct (reported by Jenn Bakal)
  • FreeImage is now fixed on 64 bit machines


Zernike moment computation allows the specification of the centre of mass. Support loading 1-bit images with freeimage
