Dear All,

Today we are releasing Bio-Formats 5.2.1, a bug-fix release.

Improvements include fixes for two formats:

  *   Zeiss CZI
     *   fixed NumberFormatException when the position object is not null but the values of child are null
  *   SimplePCI
     *   made IniParser less stringent to allow reading of imperfectly formatted TIFF description headers

Other improvements:

  *   fixed stitching of file patterns in ImageJ to remove duplication of directory names in the file path
  *   added an option to bfconvert to allow creation of OME-TIFF without lookup tables
  *   addition of MetadataOnly elements containing no BinData or TiffData now handled via MetadataTools API in ImageInfo
  *   example code in developer docs is now tested via a new Maven module

Full details can be found at http://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/support/bio-formats5.2/about/whats-new.html

The software is available at: http://downloads.openmicroscopy.org/bio-formats/5.2.1

and available for Fiji users from the Java-8 update site.
