  1. AOCB (<5 mins)


  1. Accepting minutes: yes!
  2. Matters Arisng:
  3. Everyone: Do your mac address today!
  4. Josh/mage
    • Haven't found out why yet
    • Everyone should run locally for the moment
  5. How do we set ARGB for pything in Java?
    • Model says RGBA, method on rendering engine setRGBA(), not qualified in server
    • We will need to standardize server methods to model RGBA
    • Related to Ticket #2367 (OME-TIFF ticket)
      • Problem here is that color channel size should be an int, but the model seems to indicate a long
      • This will need to be changed and these types need bounding
      • For the moment, Chris will write a custom handler for color but will need changing to BIG_INT in next schema release
    • Possibly split into R,G,B,A
    • Donald: but that causes a lot of bit fiddling
  6. Status update
  7. Chris: should be solid in the clients (barring color)
  8. Work on export in the backend; beginning of next week
    • Slightly more exported (incl. annotations)
    • Nearly impossible to do code-gen at the moment. (inconsistencies)
  9. Jean-Marie and Will have us solid on metadata
  10. Stylesheets: several things to fix
  11. Testing
    • Will is currently looking at permissions
    • Colin: needs to talk to Josh about getting session information for FS
  12. Donald: Flim is back to where it was before and is now refactoring it to work with more samples. ROI Stuff done.
    • Will: Iain was concerned about ROI changes. May want to go over it with him Donald.
    • Donald: This is known breaking changes for the guys downstairs.
    • Chris: Perhaps we should not upgrade to 4.2 locally yet.
    • Andrew: Perhaps we can just write a script for Iain (after 4.2 release)
  13. Emails / Forum / QA
  14. Melissa will reply to Ruben
  15. Chris responded to several
  16. Josh will respond to Hufnagle
  17. Donald: seems to be a JVM update which has broken Windows L&F

Action Items

  • Everyone: Update your google contact list MAC addresses today!
  • Namespace-creation functionality
  • Donald: Talk to Iain/Michael about ROI changes (just a reminder of where we're at?)
