This software allows for creating, viewing and manipulating surface
reconstructions of the cerebral and cerebellar cortex, viewing volumes and for
displaying experimental data on the surfaces and volumes. While Caret is
primarily a GUI application with 'caret_command' there is also a versatile
command line tool, that allows access to a substantial proportion of Caret's
Caret can download and use stereotaxic atlases (human, monkey, mouse and rat)
from an open online database.
Some functionality of Caret is only available when additional data files,
provided by the caret-data package, are available. This includes:
- Map volumes to surface via PALS atlas
- Multi-resolution morphing
- Projection of foci via PALS atlas
- Surface-based registration
- Surface flattening
Currently the caret-data package is only available from the NeuroDebian
repository. Please see for more information.

caret (5.6.4~dfsg.1-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Add patch to properly link against libGLU. Thanks to Nicolas Bourdaud
for the patch (Closes: #672020).
2012-04-11 - Michael Hanke <>
caret (5.6.4~dfsg.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Add patch to support HURD as well.
* Rename custom rules targets to avoid conflict with standard names,
such as build-arch (Closes: #666376).
* Added dummy targets build-arch and build-indep to debian/rules.
* Bumped Standards-Version to 3.9.3, no changes necessary.
* Removed DM-Upload flag, no longer necessary.
* Install icon for Caret (Closes: #639973).
* Remove backport patch for wheezy -- it has libqtassistantclient-dev now.
2011-06-04 - Michael Hanke <>
caret (5.6.4~dfsg.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Adjusted packaging and patches for Cifti library addition.
2011-05-07 - Michael Hanke <>
caret (5.6.2~dfsg.1-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Remove dysfunctional --no-undefined linker option.
* Add patch to add header include required by GCC 4.6 (Closes: #625110).
2011-04-15 - Michael Hanke <>
caret (5.6.2~dfsg.1-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Added patch to fix a FTBFS on kFreeBSD due to changes in the way Qt
handles platform defines (i.e. Q_OS_GLIBC -> Q_OS_FREEBSD_KERNEL).
Closes: #618645
* Move Caret into the "science" section of the menu (LP: #680495).
2011-03-13 - Michael Hanke <>
caret (5.6.2~dfsg.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release. Merged most patches. Thanks to John Harwell and
Jon Schindler.
* Switch the source package format 3.0 (quilt). Moved remaining patch under
quilt's arms.
* Bumped Standards-Version to 3.9.1, no changes necessary.
* Changed maintainer to NeuroDebian team.
* Updated debian/copyright.
* Improved package description to mention unavailable functionality when
the caret-data package is missing.
* Addressed upstream's concerns about support for the Debian package, by a)
adding a patch that clearly identifies Caret as a Debian build and b) put
explicit support information into README.Debian.
* Patch upstream's "this is not a supported version" dialog on application
startup to show information on missing functionality and how to obtain
the missing pieces. Moreover, this dialog won't be displayed when all
relevant data files are found on a particular system to keep the
nuisance-level low.
* Address removal of QAssistantClient() from Qt 4.7 by adjusting
dependencies accordingly (Closes: #588977). Thanks to Alex Valavanis
and for the report and patch.
* Fix FTBFS due to underspecified linking for internal libraries
(Closes: #554061).
