Release of Bio-Formats 5.7.2

David Gault (Staff)
Dear all,

Today we are releasing Bio-Formats 5.7.2 which includes the following changes:

File format fixes and improvements:

  *   Nikon ND2
     *   fixed a bug which would use the incorrect channel count for small-sized single channel images
  *   MetaMorph TIFF
     *   changed the reader's behaviour to populate exposure times for all planes when only a single exposure time is defined
  *   DeltaVision
     *   improved parsing of the associated log files to add additional key value pairs to global metadata
  *   EPS (Encapsulated PostScript)
     *   fixed an exception when reading pixel data in cases with embedded TIFF
  *   GIF
     *   fixed a bug to display the correct data when reading planes out of order

Bug fixes and improvements:

  *   fixed failures with Ant build from a clean Maven repository by updating Maven repositories to use HTTPS rather than HTTP
  *   now using safe version checking for Bio-Formats plugins to prevent a bug with Java 9
  *   updated the JPEG-XR codec to allow either interleaved or non-interleaved data to be returned

Documentation improvements:

  *   added clarification regarding Bio-Formats version requirements for using Java 7 or above
  *   updated download links to latest Bio-Formats release version
  *   updated the link to the most active fork of JAI ImageIO
  *   fixed a number of external broken links
  *   added a Trello link for contributing external developers
  *   added a link to the page Adding format/reader documentation pages<> to help those contributing to the documentation or supported formats pages
  *   the Bio-Rad Gel<> page has been updated to add a link to biorad1sc_reader,  an external python implementation (thanks to Matthew Clapp)
