Release of Bio-Formats 5.3.2

Postby sbesson » Mon Jan 09, 2017 10:18 am

Dear All,

Today we are releasing Bio-Formats 5.3.2, a bug fix release:

  • ImageJ
    • fixed race condition when opening multiple series from a dataset, as introduced by thumbnail loading changes in 5.3.0
    • updated thumbnail generation to be faster for datasets containing an image pyramid
  • Metamorph
    • updated to read the refractive index and set RefractiveIndex on ObjectiveSettings in the generated OME-XML (thanks to Marc Bruce)
  • Metamorph TIFF
    • fixed Z and channel dimension counts when each channel has a unique Z position
    • updated to read the emission wavelength and set EmissionWavelength on LightSourceSettings in the generated OME-XML
  • QuickTime
    • fixed incorrect image data when reading of tiles from single channel files
  • file grouping
    • fixed handling of loci.formats.in.MetadataOptions objects by the loci.formats.FileStitcher reader
  • Documentation improvements:
    • fixed extensions listed for Zeiss TIFF
    • simplified markdown for creating tables
Full details can be found at http://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/supp ... s-new.html

The software is available at:
and is available from the Java 8 update site for Fiji users (note that you will need to disable the 'Bio-Formats 5' update site if you currently have it enabled, as well as enabling the 'Java 8' updates - this functionality is available under "Manage update sites").
