The OME team is pleased to announce the release of OMERO 5.1.4

back to Announcements

Today we are releasing OMERO 5.1.4. This is a point release focusing on bug fixes across all components. It also upgrades your OMERO.server to use the latest release of Bio-Formats.

Improvements include:

Developer updates include:

Support for deployment of OMERO.web using FastCGI has also been deprecated in this release and is scheduled to be removed in 5.2.0. Sysadmins should move to using WSGI instead. We are also intending to stop distributing Java Webstart for launching OMERO.insight from your browser, as security concerns mean browsers are increasingly moving away from supporting this type of application. You can read further information regarding this decision on our Web Start blog post.

Full details are available in the OMERO version history.

The software is available at archived downloads. The Virtual Appliance (to allow you to test a server locally) now has its own archived downloads.

Upgrade information is on the server upgrade page.

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

[1] Users of the ImageJ plugin may find that re-opening their saved images with ROIs back in ImageJ encounters some issues because not all the Bio-Formats fixes for this workflow made it into the Bio-Formats 5.1.4 release. This will be fixed with the upcoming Bio-Formats 5.1.5 release and in the meantime, you can use the Bio-Formats latest build.
