Bug fixes

A bunch of them.


Any idea if anything was altered that could impact Registration of whole slide images at cellular resolution with Fiji and QuPath ?

Haven’t used it yet, and it doesn’t look like the listed changes would, just curious if @NicoKiaru was aware of the upcoming release.


I think the functionality that @NicoKiaru needs was mostly untouched, but if there are issues, I’m happy to help.

Thanks @Mike_Nelson for the poke.


@Mike_Nelson for the moment BigDataViewer-Playground is overidding the new BigWarp version, so the workflow will work. I’ll update it to be compatible with the new BigWarp asap.


The automatic landmark saving feature is great! Thanks for implementing that.
