#1

Highlights include:

  • Raising the minimum Java version to 8 in order to
  • Support reading from S3 locations (using the minio library);
  • Updating the tiling API to permit disabling tiling; and
  • Disabling LUTs per plane to speed up writing from ImageJ

You can see the combined milestone changes in the version history

This is a developer release – feedback on API changes, performance and the new dependencies are very much welcome. The jars have not been pushed to the update site to give us time to test the impact on the updater (lest we put a damper on anyone’s holiday).

Further milestones will be published in the new year.

Best wishes, one and all.
