Postby dgault » Wed Jul 05, 2017 3:14 pm

Dear all,

Today we are releasing Bio-Formats 5.5.3 which includes the following changes:

File format fixes and improvements:
  • Zeiss CZI
    • fix to store Bézier ROIs as polygons, using the control points for the set of Bézier curves to form an approximation of the ROI
    • improved parsing of stage positions in metadata
    • improved parsing of detector gain values
    • removed OME-XML validation errors by fixing potential for duplicate detector IDs
    • removed invalid XML failures for Modulo label elements
    • time increment metadata now populated on Pixels element
    • fix to deal with consecutive empty planes in a series (thanks to Nicholas Trahearn)
    • no longer allow core metadata to be modified when determining if files belong to a DICOM dataset
  • Nikon NIS-Elements ND2
    • fixed calculation for scanline padding
  • Kodak BIP
    • stricter file type checking enforced by no longer relying only on the file suffix
    • improved parsing of metadata by correcting units for physical sizes, pixel type and capturing XYZ plane positions in OME-XML
  • Bio-Rad Gel
    • fixed the width of pixel data offset field
  • DeltaVision
    • improved accuracy of format detection checking for input streams
  • Andor SIF
    • fixed support for cropped images by parsing bounding box of the stored image

Documentation improvements:
  • Olympus cellSens VSI updated to include list of available specifications
