Release of OMERO & Bio-Formats 5.0.6

The OME team is pleased to announce the release of OMERO & Bio-Formats 5.0.6

back to Announcements

Two security vulnerabilities have been discovered in versions of OMERO up to and including 5.0.5. System administrators should review the Security Advisories on the OME website

We do not consider either 2014-SV3 CSRF or 2014-SV4 POODLE to be critical vulnerabilities due to the difficulty of exploiting them. However, we do highly recommend all installations be upgraded.

The new version is available archived downloads

For information on the upgrade from 4.4.x or 5.0.x to 5.0.6, see the OMERO 5.0.6 instructions

Bio-Formats 5.0.6 is also being released, although not due to a security vulnerability. Bug fixes include:

The new version is available from archived downloads

Note that OpenJDK8 is not yet supported by OMERO or Bio-Formats.

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