This documentation is for OMERO 5.2. This version is now in maintenance mode and will only be updated in the event of critical bugs or security concerns. OMERO 5.3 is expected in the first quarter of 2017.

What’s new for OMERO 5.2 for users

Updates and new features for OMERO 5.2 include:

  • improved support for screen data formats (amongst others) and import times for images with many ROIs
  • reworked display of metadata and annotations in the right hand pane of both clients
  • improved support for attaching analytical results
  • significant improvement in client performance including for loading data and drag and drop actions
  • the size limit for exporting images is now 12k x 12k pixels

Note that you can no longer launch the desktop clients via Java Web Start as we have dropped support for this due to technical issues beyond our control.
