      • work ongoing on FLIMfit tutorial
      • assisted by recent changes in Bio-Formats
      • aiming to release Bio-Formats more frequently than OMERO?
        • Josh M: yes, at some point
    5. Bio-Formats large file sets (Sebastien B) - 14:42 UK

      • difficulties generating large OME-TIFFs, hitting bottlenecks; gathering information
        • can Bio-Formats C++ help?
    6. Other consortium timelines (5 minutes) - 14:43 UK

      • Mark H: conference planning, would be good to know about Bio-Formats / OMERO workshop
    7. Update on Java Gateway status (Dominik) - 14:45 UK

      • classes moved from Insight to Blitz, should now be able to use various methods from the Blitz JAR
        • mostly working well
        • perhaps gateway code can move into omero_client or some other JAR so as to entail rather fewer dependencies; to discuss with Jean-Marie
      • large OMERO gateway class still in Insight, but progressively moving methods
      • still to extract UI components from Insight
      • Simon: unify Python & Java gateways?
        • Dominik: would be good to; perhaps discuss with Will
        • Josh M: need to discuss timeline for freezing gateway API
  3. AOB (5 mins max - technical discussions should be highlighted to relevant people and rescheduled) - 14:52 UK

    • Roger: how much Ice 3.6 support to offer for 5.1.3?
      • perhaps offer artifacts but explicitly less/not supported and tested?
        • just under “other components” page, not downloads landing page
      • Simon: easy to get Ice 3.6 working with Anaconda
      • Josh M: very important to make the 5.1.3 deadline
      • Sebastien B: with Ice 3.5 even after testing and release there was a Windows bug and those artifacts were withdrawn
      • Sebastien B: need to be clear what is to be tested (platforms, etc.) to feel sufficiently confident, also how much time or resources must be invested?
      • Mark C: how obvious would Ice 3.6 bugs be?
        • Josh M: probably fairly, given certain platforms/combinations, which can’t all be tested for 5.1.3
      • summary seemed: can consider offering unsupported artifacts and test as we can, but do not let 5.1.3 slip

Done 15:03 UK
