I’m excited to announce the release of CellProfiler 3.1.
Our focus for CellProfiler 3.1 was polishing features and squashing bugs introduced in CellProfiler 3.0. We also started laying down the foundation for our next release, CellProfiler 4.0, that will transition CellProfiler from Python 2 to Python 3, improve multiprocessing, and overhaul the interface.
There’re a few noteworthy changes that some users might enjoy like UTF-8 pipeline encoding, a simpler application bundle (that won’t require installing Java), and a variety of documentation improvements.
Of course this would not have been possible without the hard work of our software engineers and all our contributors- Allen Goodman, Claire McQuin, Matthew Bowden, Vasiliy Chernyshev, Kyle Karhohs, Jane Hung, Chris Allan, Vito Zanotelli, Carla Iriberri, and Christoph Moehl, take a bow!
