- The ImageJ Updater is working again!
- The ImageJ wiki has a maintenance page configured now, with links to cached content and other resources.
- The missing OpenSPIM downloads are now available again.
- 3 more sites migrated, 13 to go: 25/38=65%
@Preetika Glad you were able to install Kappa using the workaround. For future reference, the normal update mechanism (Help › Update…, “Manage Update Sites” button, tick the sites you want) should now be working again. Let us know here if not.
@eljonco @mmvpgs I finally got a maintenance page up. It has links to cached versions of imagej.net from the Wayback Machine as well as Google’s cache (the Wayback Machine’s version is much easier on the eyes ). With this, the infinite redirects problem should be fixed—let us know here if not (though try clearing your browser cache first too).
@17adaell Thank you for pointing this out! I have restored the contents of
openspim.org/downloads to https://downloads.imagej.net/openspim/; I hope this is helpful. Let us know here if you notice any other missing resources.
@oburri Definitely, thanks for asking. We’ve been running an rsync daemon so that people can mirror update.imagej.net, update.fiji.sc and sites.imagej.net. We’ll be publicizing that more widely in future, and maybe we can have a mirrors list that the Updater can use, or even set up a CDN. All these things take additional time and development resources but it will be good to have the redundancy, and could really help with performance for different geographic areas. As for the wiki, we are currently far along in the process of ditching MediaWiki ( but also ) in favor of GitHub Pages, which will have many advantages, and avoid this sort of problem in the future. We can discuss more along these lines in the coming weeks, once the server situation is further along.
