Dlib 18.11 released

The new version of dlib is out. This release contains mostly minor bug fixes and usability improvements, with the notable exception of new routines for extracting local-binary-pattern features from images and improved tools for learning distance metrics. See the release notes for further information.

I also recently found out about two particularly interesting projects that use dlib.  The first is menpo, a Python library focused on computer vision which is being developed by a team at Imperial College London.  If you are interested in a Python library that pulls together a bunch of computer vision tools then definitely check it out.  The other interesting project is Ceemple, which is basically an interactive language shell for C++.  They have integrated a bunch of libraries like dlib and OpenCV into it with the general goal of making C++ development feel more rapid and interactive.  So think of something like MATLAB or IPython, but for C++.
