The OME team is pleased to announce the release of Bio-Formats 6.13.0
Today we are releasing Bio-Formats 6.13.0 with a number of significant changes including a number of dependency updates and a significant number of format fixes. We have also made some API additions, allowing users to configure a fill color for undefined pixels as well as the option to preserve the original creator tag when writing OME-TIFF and OME-XML. The JPEGCodec has also been updated to allow the JPEG quality to be configured using the existing CodecOptions. A special thanks as always to the external contributors who have helped make this release happen.
The full list of changes included in this release are as follows:
File format fixes and improvements:
preserve_creator for OME-TIFF and OME-XML writers.
When set to true the original OME/Creator attribute will be preserved by the writer.
If set to false, the OME Creator attribute will be updated to include the current
Bio-Formats version. Attribute is set to false by default.
setFillColor(Byte color) and
Byte getFillColor(), the default
value if undefined is 0.
-fill option to the command line tools, allowing a byte value to be
configured for use with undefined pixels (0-255)
