          • Simon: when for 5.3.0?
            • Jean-Marie: February. m6 end of November; dependency inversion question may impact.
          • Jean-Marie for version/platform decisions need to first take into account impact on CI and avoid blocking others' work
            • also need to consult community
            • comment on Trello card this week
        2. Question about Insight?
          • moving to maintenance mode, refocusing on next-generation viewer
        3. Dependencies/version
      4. Outreach

    3. Glencoe Update (Chris) - 14:20 UK

      • working on scalability, also czi changes
      • PathViewer 1.1 to be announced imminently
  3. Demo of new grid viewer by Will Moore - 14:22 UK

    • Roger: can construct overall image from stage labels
      • Will: need sample data with units not as "reference frame"
    • Josh: difficult to represent the complexity as need to get a lot of context into the display on the screen
      • Roger: other software like MetaMorph may provide good UI ideas
        • e.g., collapse some panes to give up screen for thumbnails
        • Chris: different software has different ideas about these issues and perhaps little consensus on what is best
          • Will's work has some similarities with Columbus
          • it can be helpful to see multiple plates at once, depends on type of assay: flexibility is good to cover different use cases
            • Roger: multi-plate is increasingly supported in other software
              • Chris: one thing at a time, beyond scope of Will's current work
      • Jean-Marie: please add other-software screenshots (or other useful information) to the SPW card
    • Will: we probably now have data from Damir
      • Chris: Damir's many-field well data is actually uncommon
    • Jean-Marie: of Will's pending SPW grid work what is higher priority?
      • Chris: with OMERO used to shepherd data through analysis workflow, users don't really touch the images until after analysis so initial rendering settings are less important, often only set once
        • can set rendering settings on all fields based on baseline from a couple of control wells, can take a long time over realistically sized plates
      • Chris: for public data like LINCS, HMS, initial visual representation is much more important, metrics are there on import
        • again, data size means don't want to regenerate thumbnails again
      • Will: so browser refresh after change of rendering settings would be okay?
        • Chris: sure; also want to discuss knowing when thumbnails are "dirty"
      • Chris: normal to apply the same rendering settings plate-wide
      • Roger: generate thumbnail without rendering settings (like a shrunken image) and apply rendering settings on demand during viewing
