Release of OMERO & Bio-Formats 4.4.9

Postby hflynn » Mon Oct 14, 2013 4:10 pm

Dear All,

Today we are launching 4.4.9, a bug-fix release addressing a number of issues across all components.

For OMERO, this includes:
  • fixing compatibility issues between clients and servers using different Ice versions e.g. client using Ice 3.5 connecting to a server using Ice 3.4;
  • adding Ice 3.5 support (exception - Ice 3.5 server on Windows);
  • updating minimum system requirements to Java 1.6 (Java 1.5 is no longer supported);
  • a major reworking of the testing infrastructure;
  • new scripting sharing service as requested by users;
  • new user help website to host workflow-based guides;
  • new partner project pages to highlight work going on within the extended OME consortium.

A security vulnerability has also been identified and resolved, meaning that we strongly recommend all users upgrade their OMERO clients and servers. Sysadmin documentation for upgrading your server is here.

Bio-Formats improvements include a number of bug fixes including for the ND2 format.

Full details are available on the OMERO Github milestone and the Bio-Formats Github milestone pages.

The software is available from OMERO Downloads and Bio-Formats Downloads (which you will note, have now moved to downloads.openmicroscopy.org - legacy versions to be available here soon).

Kind regards,
The OME team
