Release of OMERO & Bio-Formats 4.4.11

Postby hflynn » Wed Apr 16, 2014 11:29 am

Today we are launching 4.4.11, a bug-fixing release to address the OMERO Java Web Start issue which has been affecting some users since a recent update to Java security. This release has been code-signed by the University of Dundee, allowing Java Web Start to be used on all supported systems without needing to override security settings.

Bio-Formats is being released to keep version numbers the same as OMERO.

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.

For information on upgrading your server, see the upgrade guide for system administrators. You only need to upgrade if you need the Java Web Start fix. If possible, we recommend you upgrade to 5.0.1 instead.

As previously stated, our development focus is now on the OME 5 line, and while we will continue to support 4.4.x through 2014, we will only perform critical bug fixes on this version.

Fiji users should note that as Fiji now ships with Bio-Formats 5 by default, the OMERO.insight-ij plugin for the 4.4.x line will no longer work with Fiji. We are looking into hosting a Bio-Formats 4 update site to fix this issue, if it is a blocker for your use of OMERO, please let us know. Note that upgrading to OMERO 5.0.1 would also fix this issue.

Kind regards,
The OME team
