What’s new for OMERO 5.1 for users

Updates and new features for OMERO 5.1 include:

  • support for units throughout the Data Model allowing for example, pixel sizes for electron microscopy to be stored in nanometers rather than being set as micrometers
  • new, searchable key-value pair annotations for adding experimental metadata
  • improved performance for moving and deleting data
  • improved performance for many file formats, including much faster import for HCS data and new supported formats via Bio-Formats (now over 140)
  • improvements in rendering settings workflow to make it more transparent and also to align the functionality between OMERO.insight and OMERO.web
  • improved functionality of the OMERO ImageJ plugin allowing you to import images to OMERO from ImageJ (both modified e.g. cropped and unmodified) and also save ROIs and overlays from ImageJ into OMERO without having to re-import if your image is already stored in OMERO

See the updated user guides for managing data, viewing data and using ImageJ with OMERO for further information.

OMERO 5.1.2 introduced support for Read-Write groups - see the updated sharing data guide for details.
