ImageJ Plugin with Eclipse Macro Editor Updated

16.11.2017

I released a new version of the ImageJ plugin which comes bundled with a feature complete ImageJ macro editor.

For an overview of the plugin please consult the github page:

https://github.com/Bio7/EclipseImageJ1Plugin

Release notes:

  • Updated ImageJ plugin to version 1.51.s24
  • Code completion (templates) action now displays the macro documentation when typing
  • Code completion context information improved
  • Images from macros are now opened fast (before had a 2s delay because of a missing attribute)
  • MacOSX extra menu disabled (avoids a cluttered menu)
  • Macros can now be executed within an external ImageJ instance in a separate Java process (if enabled in the preferences – see screenshot 2 below). Tested on Windows only!
  • Added JavaFX library reference for Java9

Installation:

To install the plugin the latest Eclipse Java version 4.7 (Oxygen) is required (I tested this plugin with 4.7.1a). Open the Help->Install new Software dialog and add the following update site:

The plugin is also availabe from the Eclipse Marketplace Client:

New Icons for Bio7 2.5

08.12.2016

Beside many changes for the next release I was able to find the time to update the icons of Bio7 for the next release. The icons are a subset of the FontAwesome icons and some custom icons and were created with Inkscape. They will be made available for free, too.  At the moment the icons are available in two resolutions (100%, 200%) and the larger icons will be used when working with a high DPI monitor (> x dpi). For the rules see:
