We are excited to announce the release of Glencoe Software's Bio-Formats 7.3.0, which includes everything in open source Bio-Formats 7.2.0 and 7.3.0 from the Open Microscopy Environment.

See the open source Bio-Formats 7.2.0 release notes from OME here. See the open source Bio-Formats 7.3.0 release notes from OME here.


In addition, the latest release of Bio-Formats includes a fix for the display of original metadata from OME-XML files. This in particular impacts OME-Zarr datasets in OMERO Plus, which should now display their original metadata correctly without needing to re-import.

Don’t miss the latest NGFF-Converter 2.0, released in May. NGFF-Converter 2.0 has been rebuilt from the ground up to provide a more comprehensive interface around the bioformats2raw and raw2ometiff conversion standards.

We are always working to improve our products, and your feedback is important to us. If you experience any issues, please don’t hesitate to contact us at support@glencoesoftware.com. Thank you for your continued support and we hope you enjoy the latest updates to Glencoe Software’s Bio-Formats!
