Today we are releasing OMERO 5.4.0, a full production-ready release of OMERO that includes several new updates for users, sysadmins and facility managers. This update of OMERO features a new configurable user role “Restricted Administrators”; further improvements to OMERO.web; additions to OMERO.cli; and many fixes and performance improvements:

Developer updates include:

Further changes to the Python BlitzGateway are described in What’s new for OMERO 5.4.0 for developers.

This release also upgrades the version of Bio-Formats which OMERO uses to 5.7.1, improving support for 12 file formats.

Upgrade information is on the server upgrade page. Sysadmins who used the workaround for the 2017-SV4 security advisory rather than upgrading to 5.3.5 will also find instructions for reversing it as this release includes the security fix and fixes the OMERO.web forgotten password functionality regression.

The software is available at archived downloads.
