I am pleased to announce release of OMERO.figure 1.0.0. This release adds support for maximum-intensity Z-projection, as well as a number of other features and minor bug fixes. A video of this release can be found here:
We have decided to remove the beta flag from OMERO.figure with this release, since it has been in use on our production OMERO server since its first release in March of this year. During that time, there have only been minor bug reports and the file format has remained very stable.
- For Z-stack images, you can click a button (below the channel buttons) to turn on Z-projection. The range of Z-indices can then be chosen using a 2-handled Z-slider.
- Initially, the Z-range is only 5 slices and is centered on the current Z-index. This allows you include objects just above and below the current position in the projection, without losing your place in the Z-stack.
- If you want a projection of the entire Z-stack, you can simply drag the sliders to the full range.
Increment Z and T indices:
- Small arrow buttons at the ends of the Z and T sliders now allow you to increment the Z or T index of all the selected panels by 1 at a time.
- This is particularly useful if you want to ‘play’ through a movie of several selected panels at once.
- Exported PDF figures now contain the url of the source OMERO.figure file so that you can always return to the original figure.
- When you go to open a figure (File > Open), only figures owned by you are initially displayed in the list. You can find files belonging to collaborators in your OMERO groups by using the ‘Owner’ drop-down chooser.
- Editing of timestamp labels previously caused all selected labels to show the same text. This has now been fixed.
- Exported PDFs are now named according to the figure name, instead of a timestamp-based name.
