== Micro-Manager versions ==

Currently, there are 2 usable versions of Micro-manager: 1.4 and 2.0-gamma.  These versions use the same code to interface to devices, but differ in their user interface, and file reading/saving code.  2.0-gamma is actively developed and maintained.  1.4 is no longer developed (except for the device support and the ASI diSPIM plugin).  If you start using Micro-Manager, it is recommended to use the latest nightly build of 2.0-gamma

Although there has been no official release for quite some time, further development and multiple bug fixes have occurred in the 1.4 branch in parallel with development of 2.0. Nightly builds are almost always stable and a better choice for most users than the latest official release.

Micro-Manager versions

Currently, there are 2 usable versions of Micro-manager: 1.4 and 2.0-gamma. These versions use the same code to interface to devices, but differ in their user interface, and file reading/saving code. 2.0-gamma is actively developed and maintained. 1.4 is no longer developed (except for the device support and the ASI diSPIM plugin). If you start using Micro-Manager, it is recommended to use the latest nightly build of 2.0-gamma

(Previous releases)

Nightly Builds

Although there has been no official release for quite some time, further development and multiple bug fixes have occurred in the 1.4 branch in parallel with development of 2.0. Nightly builds are almost always stable and a better choice for most users than the latest official release.

Micro-Manager 1.4.22 (August 14, 2015)

Read the Known Issues.

Requires Windows XP, or 7-10. Windows 7 recommended. Device drivers may have other requirements.

Requires Mac OS X 10.5-10.10. 10.11 (El Capitan) is not yet supported. Device drivers may have other requirements.
