  • If you get temporary (or permanent) freezes in the HIPE GUI, or you have created a custom task dialogue or view in HIPE, you can debug it by enabling the corresponding preference in Edit > Preferences > General > Debug. Any problem found with this debugging can be reported like previously, with the HSC Helpdesk or Give Feedback options of the Help menu.

Plug-ins

Deleted:

A utility is provided to disable all plug-ins without having to start HIPE. This can be convenient when you know or suspect that a plug-in causes HIPE not to start. The utility is called disable_plugins and is located in the bin directory of the installation.
 
Changed:

You can use the Plug-ins panel (from the Tools menu) to re-enable your plug-ins.

  • More protection against problematic plug-ins. You can now disable all plug-ins without having to start HIPE. This can be convenient when you know or suspect that a plug-in causes HIPE not to start. To disable all plug-ins, run the disable_plugins utility located in the bin directory of the installation. You can use the Plug-ins panel (from the Tools menu) to re-enable your plug-ins.
  • More flexible update mechanism. If multiple updates for a plug-in are found, they are now all shown. Previously only the most recent update was shown.
  • Improved user feedback. You now get popup messages when no updates are found for installed plug-ins, and when you install a plug-in incompatible with your version of HIPE.
  • Many improvements to plug-in installation:
    • The installation process is now much faster for large plug-ins, such as those containing data pools.
    • The HIPE interface is no longer unresponsive while installing a plug-in.
    • You can follow the progress of the installation in the progress bar at the bottom of the HIPE window.
  • Fixed a problem with the scanamorphos plug-in, which would not read correctly some scanamorphos output. The plug-in assumed that the PrimaryImage HDU contained a 3-dim array. Output containing a 2-dim array in the PrimaryImage HDU was not read correctly.
 

Upgrades

If there is a new user release available, HIPE would notice it and offer to install the new version.
