Release of OMERO 5.1.3

Josh Moore
Dear All,

Today we are releasing OMERO 5.1.3. This is a point release that
contains bug-fixes, but also adds some new functionality to OMERO.

Improvements include:

 * tagging actions extended; you can now use tag sets to tag images on import
 * tagging ome-tiff images at import has also been fixed
 * greatly improved workflow and bug fixes for the Share functionality
in OMERO.web which enables you to share images with users outside of
your group (including removal of part of the UI)
 * group admins and owners can now change ownership of data via the CLI
 * better reporting for the 'delete' and 'chgrp' functionality in the CLI
 * fixed display of images in plates with multiple acquisitions
 * fixed export of results as .xls files from OMERO.insight
 * improved workflow for ImageJ and OMERO interactions
 * fixes for ROI display in OMERO.web (thanks to Luca Lianas of CRS4)
 * fixes and workflow improvements for running scripts and script dialogs

Developer updates include:

 * OMERO.web clean-up (removal of '-locked')
 * reorganization of the server bundle to move various licenses and
dependencies under a new 'share' folder
 * refactoring of 'Chown2', 'Chmod2', 'Chgrp2' and 'Delete2'
 * addition of dynamic scripts
 * the 'rstring' implementation is now more lenient and should better
handle unicode
 * Bio-Formats submodule removed from OMERO; decoupling effort means
OMERO now consumes the Bio-Formats release build from the artifactory

Sysadmin updates include:

 * support for WSGI OMERO.web deployment (FastCGI will likely be
deprecated in 5.1.4 and removed for 5.2)
 * fixed OMERO.mail service for web errors[/list]

This release also includes the fix for the Java security issue, as
discussed in the recent blog post
Testing suggests this fix should not have any performance
implications. You should upgrade your Java version to take advantage
of the security fix.

The software is available at:

The Virtual Appliance (to allow you to test a server locally) now has
its own downloads page and can be found on
