Today we are releasing version 2.4.0 of our OpenFlexure Microscope server.

This release primarily updates internal dependencies. This version of the server is powered by Python-Labthings 0.8.0, which includes some internal API changes that extension developers should note. Our documentation has been updated to reflect these changes, and can be found here.

The update also includes some minor usability improvements and bug fixes.

Installing the update

As long as you’re running version 2.0 or later, this release does not require flashing a new SD card. To install, open the terminal on your microscope (or SSH in to your microscope), and run:

sudo ofm update

sudo ofm upgrade

Help and Support

We now have a public forum for reporting issues, especially for those less comfortable with raising issues on our specific GitLab repositories. Please raise any general queries on the forum here.
