        • Not so many changes remaining that are not backported to OMERO 5.3. Dev.
        • Chris: decoupling of web from server will simplify this.
        • Josh: Right-hand panel needs to be more plugin-enabled. Happy to see web plugins & cli plugins decoupled to new repositories.
        • Chris: Lots of JCB-dataviewer-specific code in web image viewer, instead of plugin points.
        • Eleanor: updating existing and starting handling 2 new datasets.

        • Will start work on SPW grid view soon.
        • Web-API progressing

        • Chris: As Roger says, no advantage for 255 limit vv ‘text’ field in Postgres
        • Mark: NB: simple query could give very large response.
        • JM: New role for ‘admin lite’ e.g. uploading scripts etc.
