Release of Bio-Formats 5.4.1

Helen Flynn (Staff)
Dear All,

Today we are releasing Bio-Formats 5.4.1 which includes the following changes:

File format improvements:

  *   MIAS (Maia Scientific)
     *   added a fix for a possible exception when image files are not found under channel-specific subdirectories
  *   BD Pathway
     *   added fix to check if Experiment.exp is a directory or an experiment file
  *   Imspector OBF
     *   enabled forward compatibility for future versions as the OBF format is backwards compatible (thanks to Bjoern Thiel)

Documentation improvements:

  *   updated external homepage link for FocalPoint
  *   removed Imago from list of visualization and analysis applications as it is no longer available from the Mayachitra website
  *   added links to public sample files for Hamamatsu NDPI and Hamamatsu VMS (see http://downloads.openmicroscopy.org/images/)
  *   listed OpenSlide as available software for supported formats
  *   added a new developer page detailing in-memory reading and writing (see https://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/support/bio-formats5.4/developers/in-memory.html)
  *   updated the Bio-Formats API versioning policy which now follows strict semantic versioning (see https://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/support/bio-formats5.4/about/index.html#versioning-policy)
  *   a new options page has been added detailing the usage of configurable format specific options for readers and writers  (see https://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/support/bio-formats5.4/formats/options.html)  Links to the available options are also included under the relevant supported formats

Full details can be found at http://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/support/bio-formats5.4/about/whats-new.html
