ODTK Runtime is now available on Linux!

The ODTK 6.6 release introduces the following enhancements.

ODTK Runtime

ODTK Runtime is a lightweight option that enables you to run ODTK without a user interface from either Windows or Linux.  

New Cross-platform API

ODTK API is now available for both Microsoft Windows and Linux. You can interface with ODTK using MATLAB, Perl, VBScript, Jscript, Python, and C++ for Windows, and Python, MATLAB, and C++ for Linux.
