OMERO: Desktop client OMERO.insight

Dear All,

In order to reduce the number of artifacts we are currently building when releasing a new version of https://github.com/ome/omero-insight, we are considering dropping the creation of OMERO.importer artifacts in the next release unless there are strong objections to it.

OMERO.importer was previously a separate application. For numerous releases, OMERO.importer and OMERO.insight have shared the same code base. OMERO.importer is a subset of OMERO.insight.
The size of the artifacts is the same.

Cheers

Hi Jmarie,
No objections of course. But is there a convenient way to make Insight start up as Importer? We have some people who were used to Importer and may want to stick with that “user experience” in their workflow.
Thanks,
Damir

Hi Damir

Thanks for the feedback. I had other replies (not via the post) and it seems that people still use the “importer”. So I worked on a solution to automate the generation of the artifacts using travis. This was successfully tested during the latest release see https://github.com/ome/omero-insight/releases/tag/v5.5.10

We will keep it as it is

Cheers

Jmarie
