Release of Bio-Formats 5.3.4

Helen Flynn (Staff)
Dear All,

Today we are releasing Bio-Formats 5.3.4, a bug fix release which includes the following changes:

Bug fixes:

  *   ImageJ
     *   fix for a NullPointerException when exporting images that were not opened via the Bio-Formats importer, and thus do not have a complete OMEXMLMetadata store
  *   Java 1.9
     *   fix compile and runtime errors to enable building with Java 1.9

File format support:

  *   ECAT7
     *   update to add support for different versions of ECAT7 files (thanks to Torsten Stöter)

Updated build system:

  *   updated dependency for ome-model in the POM to version 5.4.0. This allows for improved ROI handling by enabling support for Shape objects with Transform attributes. OME-XML schema version remains unchanged as OME schema 2016-06

Documentation improvements:

  *   new public sample files added for ECAT7 (thanks to Torsten Stöter)
  *   new public sample files added for Leica LIF (thanks to Michael Goelzer)
  *   new specification document (Version 3.2) for Leica LIF
  *   updated links to OMERO documentation as a result of decoupling

Full details can be found at

The software is available at:
and will shortly be available from the Java-8 update site for Fiji users.
