VICAR Discussion Forum
We have set up a VICAR Open Source Google group, where you can find notifications of new releases, bug reports, and general discussion. You can join the group here.
VICAR can be obtained in two ways: via tarball download, or via github.com.
Note that for externals, in both the tarballs and the github "external"
directory, you'll find one overall that contains all the platforms, as
well as separate ones for each platform. Externals are 3rd party packages that are required to run VICAR. See section 2 of the Building VICAR document for more information. You need only the one that
applies to your machine type.
