The OME team is pleased to announce the release of OMERO 5.4.6.
Today we are releasing OMERO 5.4.6. This introduces a significant new subsystem for read-only operation with which servers can be configured not to make changes to the database, the filesystem, or both. The goal is to permit horizontal scaling of OMERO by running multiple servers in parallel to increase the throughput of data and metadata for large-scale analysis or publishing. Additionally, a read-only copy of an existing OMERO can be opened safely to the public for experimentation. For example, this infrastructure supports the public OMERO web and the Jupyter environment of the Image Data Resource. Information on how to configure a read-only server is available at Read-Only.
Further improvements include:
Developer updates include:
This release also upgrades the version of Bio-Formats which OMERO uses to 5.8.2. Note: this is a significant upgrade and will invalidate the Bio-Formats Memoizer cache. Please see the upgrade guide for further information.
The software is also available at archived downloads.
Any problems or comments, please use the OME Forums or mailing lists.
