Release of OMERO 5.4.2

Helen Flynn (Staff)
Dear All,

We are pleased to announce the release of OMERO 5.4.2, a bug-fix release.

Improvements include:

  *   added documentation on a complete workflow for publishing data from OMERO.server (see https://docs.openmicroscopy.org/omero/5.4.2/sysadmins/public.html)
  *   added references to the new OMERO pyramid format documentation (within the OME Data Model and File Formats documentation - see https://docs.openmicroscopy.org/latest/ome-model/omero-pyramid/index.html)
  *   faster loading of thumbnails for large Plates after a recent regression
  *   made projecting images belonging to another user only possible for users with the required permissions to save the new images
  *   improved the public user experience for password-less access
  *   updated SwingX library version used by OMERO.insight to stop insight-ij plugin crashing in Fiji
  *   CLI updates:
     *   ``import --target`` into a container without the necessary permissions now fails before file upload starts and more transparently
     *   ``admin mail`` timeout is now configurable via ``--wait``
     *   added ``admin log`` command for inserting statements to the server log

Sysadmin changes include:

  *   added warning about the need to regenerate your NGINX config for every upgrade
  *   fixed documentation bug affecting OMERO-version-specific guidance
  *   improved OMERO.tables startup stability
  *   server performance improvements and reduction in ERROR logging

Developer updates include:

  *   extended Python and Java examples to include Map Annotations and histograms
  *   added methods for updating OMERO.tables
  *   Java Gateway fixes for sessions and rendering
  *   fixed retrieval of Plate thumbnail URLs
  *   improved Editing OMERO.web documentation
  *   improved Slice documentation for API deprecations
  *   added instructions to documentation for OMERO.cli extensions on how to create CLI plugins that are ``pip`` installable (see https://docs.openmicroscopy.org/omero/5.4.2/developers/cli/extending.html)
  *   substantial effort to make third-party repositories easily testable; see https://github.com/openmicroscopy/omero-test-infra for more information

This release also upgrades the version of Bio-Formats that OMERO uses to 5.7.3, see https://docs.openmicroscopy.org/bio-formats/5.7.3/about/whats-new.html.

Upgrade information is on the server upgrade page - https://docs.openmicroscopy.org/omero/5.4.2/sysadmins/server-upgrade.html.
