    1. Spaces

      1. Files/Formats/OME Files (Sebastien)

        • Bio-Formats 5.5.3
          • 2 releases ready
          • Almost ready to ship
          • Announcement open as a PR
          • Test/Release likely tomorrow
        • OME Files 0.4.0 incl. Tiled OME-TIFF writing
          • Tested successfully, all passed, EOB today
          • Tiled OME-TIFF files major feature
        • Bio-Formats 5.6.0
          • Focus to shift here, isolation, decoupling, low-level (codecs, decoupling TIFF)
          • Couple of milestones: integration of decoupled codecs
          • Some time next week for milestones. Then integration to OMERO 5.4
          • Breaking changes to Bio-Formats cache? Not sure. Perhaps for serialisation, not API.
      2. Metadata (Josh)

        • Cytohack: more brainstorming next week. Short summary: overall went well. Few issues with server falling over. Was using production41 (will never get live)
        • Moving towards production42
        • IDR: Discussed filesets. New prioritization (see board). Top-priority: BBBC021. Used by 4-5 presentations during the 1st day of Cytohack. Need to focus on getting ROIs and annotations in. Need to check license.
        • Liverpool light-sheet data is coming. Tracks stored in the BDV format.
        • Production41 was partly read-only (1 server + 2 read-only). Possible to scale further.
      3. OMERO 5.4.0

        • Roles PR to be merged (DB changes) Any vetoes? then tag 5.4.0-m1
          • Current state of PR: breaks C++. JM: let’s merge PR if no objection
          • JM: cards were moved/triaged on the 5.4.0 board. Thursday morning post-standup: chat about OMERO 5.4
          • Consumption by IDR: not before August.
      4. Outreach

        • Next target: global bioimaging
        • Few abstracts: Big data in biology and health pushed to July 28th
        • NEUBIAS meeting in Sweden
        • Heidelberg Seeing is Believing ? To be discussed
    2. Other releases/upgrades:

        • 0.2.0 is due next week. 12 July iirc. Goal: freeze both content and styling for 1st live deployment.
        • To raise any real blockers for deployment
        • Thanks to all PRs. More review this evening.
        • Pagination, styling small updates

          • To drive identification of blockers/issues for deployment
        • All to be reviewed next week
      5. Sysadmin (current board and recent PRs)

      6. Figure/new website work. Upgraded NS to 5.3.3 and discovered Figure bug. Triggered process of fixing bug. - Josh: cause of the bug? Related to the introduction of reverseIntensity. Did this potentially break other clients than figure? JM: was making assumption that the information was there. - Petr: also points at the lack of testing/data. Need something more lightweight than copy of NS db. - JM: need some relaxation on the assumptions of figure.

        • Demo server not upgraded yet (Ansible issues). To happen alongside/f
    3. Glencoe Update (Chris)

      • Still working in microservices, scalability, rendering engine (this week)
  3. Presentation by Seb "website and downloads and docs... oh my!"

  4. AOB (5 mins max - technical discussions should be highlighted to relevant people and rescheduled)

    • Josh: when is the next Users meeting?
    • Simon: people were interested at hackhaton before Users meeting. Need dates to organize
    • Petr: sound check last Friday. Quality of these meeting varying.
    • Jason: several issues. People might need to speak up in the room. Problem with the audio/soundboard. Trying to get another microphone (1 in front of each table). Suppress secondary conversations in the meeting room. Also reduce objects on the desk/typing unrelated to the meeting.
