It is with great pleasure that we announce the immediate availability of HRM 3.7.0!
This release focuses primarily on performance and stability, but it also introduces some new features.
Detailed changes of HRM 3.7.0 are:
Allow image channels to be assigned the restoration algorithm individually or skipped altogether. This adds the possibility to use HRM as a pure batch file converter, chromatic aberration corrector, time stabilizer, etc.
Add an “All files” filter in the image selection step. Show by default all the contents of the raw images folder.
Add extreme GPU support.
Replace old EPFL logo with current.
Substantially increase performance of files listing.
Substantially increase performance of job creation.
Make queue more robust against job deletion, process killing, process failure, and stalling.
Switch to persistent connections to the database.
Cache many database query results to reduce traffic.
Please notice that we decided to maintain compatibility with PHP 5.6 for this release, but from the next release the minimum supported PHP version will be 7.2.
Set the minimum amount of free RAM for a job to start
New template warnings for wavelength sanitation
New license checks for multi-machine installations
And several bug fixes
New Array Detector deconvolution
HRM has been extended to support one of the most requested new features in Huygens: array detector deconvolution. Therefore, Huygens 18.10 is needed for deconvolving this type of data in HRM. For more information about the array detector option in Huygens see https://svi.nl/Array-Detector.
New UI dark theme
In the previous version (3.5), HRM started a major effort toward a modern user interface. In this new version, we continue down that path by releasing a dark theme that makes HRM more gentle on the eyes of those doing deconvolution right from within the dark room. But of course, you can use it everywhere! If the UI shows any glitches at first, please clear the browser cache.
