Dear All,
The OME project is pleased to announce the release of OMERO and Bio-Formats 4.4.6.
Today we are launching 4.4.6, a bug-fix release addressing a number of issues across all components.
For OMERO, this includes a major fix to repair the C++ binding support for Ice 3.4, and the addition of the following features to the clients:
- Channel Edit - to update channel names
- Batch Annotation/De-annotation - annotate a selection of images
- Data Manager - add a smart folder (Orphaned images) to access images not linked to a dataset
There has also been an update to the CLI which may potentially break some scripts. This was necessary to fix some key problems and the changes are limited to user/group plugin commands e.g. bin/omero group insert/remove -> bin/omero group adduser/removeuser.
Bio-Formats improvements include a number of bug fixes. You will also notice that it has officially moved to the www.openmicroscopy.org site - if you host any links to Bio-Formats documentation or downloads at the LOCI site, these will soon be redirected.
Full details are available on the OMERO Github milestone page https://github.com/openmicroscopy/openmicroscopy/issues?milestone=4&state=closed and the Bio-Formats Github milestone page https://github.com/openmicroscopy/bioformats/issues?milestone=3&state=closed
Many thanks to Niko Ehrenfeuchter (University of Basel) for his contribution to this release.
As always, the software is available from OMERO Downloads http://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/products/omero/downloadsand Bio-Formats Downloads http://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/products/bio-formats/downloads
For information on the upgrade from OMERO 4.4.x to 4.4.6, see the upgrade guide for system administrators http://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/support/omero4/sysadmins/server-upgrade.html
If you have not upgraded from 4.3.x to 4.4 yet, then please upgrade directly to 4.4.6 as explained on the upgrade page linked above. 

Kind regards,
The OME team
