The OME team is pleased to announce the release of Bio-Formats 7.0.0

back to Announcements

Today we are releasing Bio-Formats 7.0.0 which includes support for writing dual-personality DICOM files. We have also removed a number of previously deprecated components which rely on external libraries, most of which are not well-supported. The full details of these are listed as below. For users who wish to retain support for files using these readers or codecs, we recommend converting these file-sets to an actively maintained open format such as OME-TIFF. This can be achieved using the Bio-Formats bfconvert command line tool as outlined in the command line tools documentation.

The full list of changes included in this release are as follows:

Removal of deprecated components:
