Today we are launching 5.0.4, a bug-fixing release.

For OMERO this includes:

Bio-Formats improvements include:

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

The software is available from OMERO archived downloads and Bio-Formats archived downloads

For information on upgrading your server, see the upgrade guide for system administrators - server upgrade

Note that you need to upgrade your OMERO.server to take advantage of the improved support for .ND2 in Bio-Formats.

For full details of the next major release, see the 5.1 milestone page. We currently intend 5.0.4 to be the last update to the 5.0.x series. Our development focus is now on the OME 5.1 line and updating the OME Data Model for the next schema release, and while we will continue to support both 4.4.11 and 5.0.4 through early 2015, we will only perform critical bug fixes on the 5.0.x line and do not intend any fixes on the 4.4.x line.

For any problems or comments, please use the OME Forums or mailing lists
