HRM Hackathon 2015

The 4th HRM hackathon is over. And it was a very productive one!

Indeed, this year we tackled both short-term and ambitious long-term tasks.

Among the most immediate tasks, we fixed a couple of post-3.2.2-release issues. We will release them soon together with the upcoming 3.3 release (Summer 2015).

For 3.3, we also implemented the option to import image templates from selected files and from templates created in the Huygens Suite. Correction for chromatic aberrations will be optional in the Restoration menu. Also, we will release the new installer scripts that will greatly simplify the setup of HRM.

Directly from our middle-term plans, a completely new Queue Manager will be the highlight of HRM 4.0 (End 2015).

And even bigger surprises are coming in HRM 5.0 (after Hackathon 2016)!



HRM 3.2.2 released!

It is with great pleasure that we announce the immediate availability of HRM 3.2.2!

This patch release offers a faster parsing of sub-images in LIF files, it addresses some reported issues with files with blank spaces in their names, and fixes the many rendering issues that have historically been ruining the HRM experience in Internet Explorer (but please mind that you will need IE version 9 or more recent for this). The following is the complete changelog.

  • Faster parsing of LIF files
  • Added PSF type to summary table
  • HRM now renders correctly in Internet Explorer 9 and above
    • IE 8 and older are no longer supported!
