back to Announcements

Today we are releasing OMERO.server 5.6.2 which fixes installation instructions for CentOS 7, adds installation instructions for both OMERO.web and OMERO.server on CentOS 8 and Ubuntu 20.04, and finally drops support for Ubuntu 16.04 and removes the corresponding installation instructions. We are also releasing OMERO.web 5.7.0 and 5.7.1 which both contain some API additions.

OMERO.server 5.6.2 runs in the same deployment environments as OMERO.server 5.6.0 and the Bio-Formats Memoizer cache will be invalidated.
