    1. OMERO - 14:31 UK

      1. Mainline (QA)
        1. webstart status: deprecate in 5.1.4 remove in 5.2 due to browser support
          • Jason: e-mail community
            • Jean-Marie: will draft a warning
            • Jason: keep it simple
            • Helen: add warning notice to online help
        2. updated Java plan. (Python is ok?)
          • Josh M: on 5.2 get rid of Java 6
            • Jason: warn community in separate e-mail
            • Roger: e-mail already drafted (docs board)
            • Josh M: add the point that it’s both OME and ImageJ
          • Josh M: Python ok?
            • Jean-Marie: no known issues
            • Roger: Simon has done Ansible setup
            • Kenny: planning to run it this week
            • Jean-Marie: good to wrap up Java before moving on to Python
        3. focusing on 5.1.4 5.2.0 and model changes (5.3/6.0) at the same time
          • Josh M: OMERO 5.1.4 looks to be on track
          • Josh M: OMERO 5.2 issues pending, Ice 3.6 on hold, ROIs a major theme
            • ROIs are next major breaking model change, but fairly large
            • proposal: 5.2 has the jsTree, gateway, etc. changes; 5.3 has the ROI work
              • further UI work to follow (including prep for coming changes)
            • Jean-Marie: ROI model changes are in two phases:
              1. resolving differences between OME-XML schema and OMERO database model (maybe mostly Mark C)
              2. larger ROI changes that keep those two in sync (maybe mostly David)
            • Jason: gateway work can mitigate breakingness of ROI changes?
              • Jean-Marie: indeed
              • Josh M: recent decoupling work set us up well for this
            • Josh M: one change is that of dropping namespace in favor of annotations; another change is introducing “ROI folders”
            • Will: need to make clear what is expected in which version
            • Jason: requires separate series of ROI meetings to decide details
              • Jean-Marie: for larger ROI changes, various stakeholders in OME consortium
            • Jason: timeline implications for Ice 3.6?
              • Roger: Python changes require it
              • Chris: difficult to manage both pre-3.6 and post-3.6, needs work and thought
      2. Spaces: metadata - largely on hold. Will attempt to have a new demo site available soon.
