    • improved handling of Analyzer 2000 datasets to find TIFF files
  • FV1000
    • fixed preview names ordering
    • enabled all BigTIFF extensions

Other improvements:

  • fixed a regression in which the DataTools number parsing API would not be thread-safe anymore
  • ImageJ bug fixes and improvements
    • fixed a bug when swapping dimensions of an image with multiple series of different dimensions
    • added an option to the exporter to pad filename indexes with zeros
  • Command-line tools improvements
    • allowed the binaries to be symlinked (thanks to Gerhard Burger)
    • added an option to bfconvert to pad filename indexes with zeros
