Option to run Freesurfer recon-all in parallel and to specify the number of threads used by not only Freesurfer but also all softwares relying on OpenMP for multi-threading. This can be achieved by running the BIDS App with the new option flag
Changes in BIDS derivatives
Renamed connectivity graph files to better conform to the BIDS extension proposal on connectivity data schema. They are now saved by default in a TSV file as a list of edges.
Functions to save and load pipeline configuration files have been moved to
Major changes in how inspection of stage/pipeline outputs with the graphical user interface (cmpbidsappmanager) which was not working anymore after migration to Python3
Fixes to compute the structural connectivity matrices following migration to python 3
Fixes to computes ROI volumetry for Lausanne2008 and NativeFreesurfer parcellation schemes
Add missing renaming of the ROI volumetry file for the NativeFreesurfer parcellation scheme following BIDS
Create the mask used for computing peaks from the Dipy CSD model when performing Particle Filtering Tractography (development still on-going)
Add missing renaming of Dipy tensor-related maps (AD, RD, MD) following BIDS
Remove all references to use Custom segmentation / parcellation / diffusion FOD image / tractogram, inherited from CMP2 but not anymore functional following the adoption of BIDS standard inside CMP3.
Software development life cycle
Use Codacy to support code reviews and monitor code quality over time.
- Add new regression tests in CircleCI to improve code coverage:
Test 01: Lausanne2018 (full) parcellation + Dipy SHORE + Mrtrix3 SD_STREAM tractography
Test 02: Lausanne2018 (full) parcellation + Dipy SHORE + Mrtrix3 ACT iFOV2 tractography

This version integrates Pull Request #33 which corresponds to the last beta release that still relies on Python 2.7. It includes in particular:
fslview(now deprecated), which now included in the conda environment of the GUI (

<output_dir>/sub-<label>(/ses<label>)/anatfolder, recognized by their
_stats.tsvfile name suffix.
MATRIX_RNG_SEEDenvironment variable (used by MRtrix) and seed for the numpy random number generator (
Fixes the output inspector window of the cmpbidsappmanager (GUI) that fails to find existing outputs, after adoption of /bids_dir and /output_dir in the bidsapp docker image.
Fixes the way to get the list of networkx edge attributes in
ConnectomeStagefor the output inspector window of the cmpbidsappmanager (GUI)

This version integrates Pull Request #28 which includes in summary:
A major revision of continuous integration testing and deployment with CircleCI which closes Issue 14 integrates an in-house dataset published and available on Zenodo @ https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3708962.
Multiple bug fixes and enhancements incl. close Issue 30 , update mrtrix3 to RC3 version, bids-app run command generated by the GUI, location of the configuration and log files to be more BIDS compliant.
Change in tagging beta version which otherwise might not be meaningfull in accordance with the release date (especially when the expected date is delayed due to unexpected errors that might take longer to be fixed than expected).
Please check the pull request 28 page for a full list of changes.

This version addresses multiple issues to make successful conversion and run of the CMP3 BIDS App on HPC (Clusters) using Singularity.
Revised the build of the master and BIDS App images:
Install locales and set
$LANGto make freesurfer hippocampal subfields and brainstem segmentation (matlab-based) modules working when run in the converted SIngularity image
BIDS input and output directories inside the BIDS App container are no longer the
/output_dir. .. warning:: this might affect the use of Datalad container (To be confirmed.)
Fix the branch of mrtrix3 to check out
Fix the configuration of CircleCI to not use Docker layer cache feature anymore as this feature is not included anymore in the free plan for open source projects.
Improved documentation where the latest version should be dynamically generated everywhere it should appear.
Date: February 06, 2020
Implementation of an in-house Nipype interface to AFNI 3DBandPass which can handle to check output as ..++orig.BRIK or as ..tlrc.BRIK (The later can occur with HCP preprocessed fmri data)
Date: January 24, 2020
Updated multi-scale parcellation with a new symmetric version:
The right hemisphere labels were projected in the left hemisphere to create a symmetric version of the multiscale cortical parcellation proposed by Cammoun2012.
For scale 1, the boundaries of the projected regions over the left hemisphere were matched to the boundaries of the original parcellation for the left hemisphere.
This transformation was applied for the rest of the scales.
Updated documentation with list of changes
