      • Released a Mac 1.07 version that adds the File/Acquire/Video command for capturing images from QuickTime compatible video sources. Requires QuickTime for Java, a QuickTime 4.0 custom install. QT 4.0 is not required, but you have to use the QT 4.0 installer to install QT for Java (do a custom install).
      • Process/Equalize now works much better thanks to an improved histogram equalization algorithm contributed by Richard Kirk that uses the square root of the histogram values. Process/Equalize also now works with 16-bit images. Hold down the alt key use the standard histogram equalization algorithm.
      • Removed the Process/Enhance Contrast command. As a substitute, use Process/Equalize or the "Auto" button in the Image/Adjust Contrast window. The "Auto" button has the advantage of not altering the pixel values except for RGB images.

      • Added the ImageProcessor.drawString method for drawing text on images. Use moveTo(x,y) to specify the position and getStringWidth() to determine how many pixels will be required to draw the text.
      • Fixed a recently introduced bug that caused File/Acquire/Raw to not work with RGB images.
      • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the the slice selector to become invalid when converting a stack to a different data type.

      Version 1.06, 2-July-99

      • Plugins in the plugins folder are no longer loaded using a custom class loader. Consequently, the plugins folder must be in the classpath. This change fixes a bug that caused static variables in plugins to be reset.

      • A 3-point running average is now used to measure freehand line lengths.
      • ImageJ now looks for the plugins folder in the folder containing ij.properties. Previous versions expected it to be in "user.dir".
      • Added the Image/Color Tables/Invert LUT command for inverting the lookup table. Inverted LUTs display zero pixels as white instead of black. Unlike Edit/Invert, Invert Lut does not alter the pixel data.
      • Roi outlines are no longer limited to 5000 points.
      • Edit/Draw now works with oval selections.
      • The display is now updated correctly after using Edit/Draw with a line width greater than one.

      • Fixed a bug, introduces in v1.02, that caused profile plots of straight line selections to be incorrect.
      • Fixed a bug that caused the "Subtract" operator in Process/Image Calculator and Edit/Paste Control to produce incorrect results.

      Version 1.03, 6-May-99

      • Added a flush() method to the ImagePlus class that sets the pixel arrays to null, making it more likely that the garbage collector will reclaim memory when images are closed.
      • The "Apply" button in the contrast/brightness control now processes every slice in a stack, with the exception of RGB and HSB stacks.

      Version 0.97, 11-December-98

      • Updated the "Waves" benchmark results for the released version of JDK 1.2. Vote for bug 4185726 if you want to see image display speeded up in JDK 1.2.
      • Added a "16-bit Unsigned" option to the File/Acquire/Raw dialog. Selecting this option causes ImageJ to subtract 32768 from each pixel value before creating a ShortProcessor to contain the image. Methods in ShortProcessor that return pixel values (getPixelValue, getMin, getMax, etc.) then add back the 32768.
      • The new MemoryMonitor plug-in continuously plots ImageJ's memory utilization. Hold down the alt/option key to use a 640x480 window and display the frame rate, simulating video acquisition. Click on the status bar in the ImageJ window to force the JVM to do garbage collection.
      • The class files for the stand alone Windows version are now packaged as a JAR file.
      • The stand alone Windows version no longer uses a minimized console window.

      Version 0.96, 23-November-98

      • Made the ImageJ window slightly wider so lines displayed by the Measurement command are less likely to be split.
      • Added a constructor to the ImagePlus class for creating an ImagePlus given an ImageProcessor.
      • Changed the order of the arguments in the ShortProcessor and FloatProcessor constructors to be consistent with the ByteProcessor and ColorProcessor constructors.

      • Fixed a bug that caused a null pointer exception when clicking on a 16-bit or 32-bit image with the dropper tool.

      Version 0.95, 19-November-98

      • The Plug-Ins/"Show Display Speeds" command was updated to include results for JDK 1.2. The results show that the crucial drawImage method is up to 22 times slower compared to JDK 1.1.7. To encourage Sun to fix this problem, vote for bug 4185726 ("JDK 1.2rc1 drawImage very slow (50% slower) compared to JDK 1.1.7") on the Bug Parade. ImageJ is not going to run well under JDK 1.2 until this problem is fixed.
      • Added the "Waves" plug-in that continuously applies a sine wave to the x-coordinates of an image. Click on the image or press the escape key to stop. This plug-in is useful as a benchmark (it displays the frame rate), as a way to demonstrate ImageJ's multi-tasking ability, and as an example of a plug-in that processes both 8-bit and RGB images.
      • Added a "Transformations" sub-menu to the Image menu and moved the "Flip Vertical" and "Flip Horizontal" commands into it.
      • Added the "Rescale" command to the Transformations sub-menu for scaling an image to a specified width and height.
      • Added commands to rotate an image 90 degrees left or right to the Transformations sub-menu.
      • The "Show Benchmark Times" and "Show Display Speeds" commands no longer require that an image be open.
      • Stack animation is now much faster.
      • The slice selection scroll bar in stack windows now works more reliably.
      • The Invert, Smooth, Find Edges, Add Noise, Despeckle and Threshold commands now operate on all the slices of a stack.
      • The Reduce Noise command, a median filter, was renamed Despeckle.
      • Added a public "running" flag to the ImageWindow class. Plug-ins can use this flag to terminate themselves when the user clicks on the image or presses the escape key. See /ij/plugin/filter/Waves.java for an example.
      • Improved the interface used by plug-in filters. Filters must now implement the PlugInFilter interface and be in the the ij.plugin.filter package. They must also provide a setup method that ImageJ will call to determine the filters capabilities. See ij/plugin/filter/PlugInFilter.java for more information and ij/plugin/filter/Invert.java for an example.
      • Added the GenericDialog class that plug-in can use to acquire multipler numeric parameters. See /ij/plugin/filter/Resizer.java for an example of how to use this new class.
      • The lock method in ImagePlus beeps and displays a status bar message if the image is already locked.
      • The reserve and unreserve methods in the ImagePlus class were renamed lock and unlock.

      Version 0.94, 21-October-98

      • The File/Acquire/Raw command no longer generates extra blank slices at the end of the stack when more than the actual number of images is specified.
      • Added a "Gap Between Images" field to the File/Acquire/Raw dialog box. This allows import of multi-image files with gaps between the images (e.g. uncompressed 8-bit AVI movies with a 4104 byte header and a gap of 8). Set the gap to (n-1)*width*height*2*real-gap to read every nth frame in a movie.
      • Changes to RGB images made using the Image/Adjust Contrast command are now be limited to the interior of non-rectangular selections.
      • The Process/Math command now works correctly with non-rectangular selections.
      • The Open... command now opens BMP files with names ending in ".bmp".
      • Added a command to the Save As sub-menu for saving images in JPEG format. It uses the JPEG encoder from http://www.obrador.com. Use the Edit/JPEG Quality command to specify the compression level.
      • The wand tool now more reliably traces areas defined by a one pixel wide boundary line.

      Version 0.93, 7-October-98

      • Added a constructor to the GifEncoder class for saving 8-bit AWT images.
      • Added the Edit/Fonts command for specifying the font, font size and font style. For a shortcut, double-click on the Text tool in the tool bar.
      • Double-clicking in the tool bar on any of the three line selection tools now brings up the set line width dialog.
      • Added a "Colors..." command to the Image menu. It downloads and displays an image that can be used, in conjunction with the dropper tool, to set the drawing color. Note that holding down the alt (option) key temporarily switches to the dropper tool.
      • Moved the Draw Arrow command from the PlugIns menu to the Edit menu.
      • Moved the Draw Arrow command from the PlugIns menu to the Edit menu.
      • Moved the Adjust Contrast command from the PlugIns menu to the Image menu.

      • Worked around a JDK 1.1.7 related bug that caused ImageJ to lock up when opening an 8-bit image.

      Version 0.92, 28-September-98

      • Fixed several bugs in "Adjust Contrast".
      • Added an "Hist." button to "Ajust Contrast" that generates a histogram and combines it with the LUT plot.
      • Added an "Apply" button to "Ajust Contrast" that, for 8-bit images, makes brightness and contrast changes permanent.
      • When running as an applet, the first time a command is executed, a progress bar is displayed as class files downloaded.
      • The 16-bit sample image "M51 Galaxy" now displays correctly.

      • Saved gif files now reflect changes made in the Adjust Contrast window.
      • Look-up table plots generated by Analyze/Show LUT now reflect changes made in the Adjust Contrast window.
      • Measurement results displayed in the ImageJ window are now formatted better.
      • Stacks are no longer limited to 100 slices.
      • Added "Next Slice" and "Previous Slice" commands to the Stacks sub-menu. Use the ">" and "<" keys as shortcuts.
      • Added a line of text to the top of each image window that displays current slice/total slices (stacks only), width, height, type and memory size.

      Version 0.89, 16-September-98

      • Added a text (annotation) tool. Use it to create a text rectangle, type some text, then use Edit/Draw to add the text to the Image. To draw the text on a white background, use Edit/Clear prior to Edit/Draw. To change the font size, use Edit/Font Size or double-click on the text tool. There is currently no way to select a different font or style. Text rectangles are currently limited to one line.
      • Added a Draw command to the pop-up menu. To use this menu, right-click on an image (option-click on the Mac).
      • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused operations on non-rectangular regions in stacks to fail.
      • Fixed a bug that could result in multiple checked items in the Type sub-menu after an attempt to do an unsupported conversion.
      • Fixed a bug that caused images larger than the screen (e.g. a 1024x1024 image on a 640x480 screen) to be displayed incorrectly after conversion to RGBA or HSB.
      • Fixed a bug that could cause null pointer exceptions when generating histograms.
      • Fixed a bug that caused the line width to be set to one if "Cancel" was clicked in the Edit/Line Width dialog box.

      Version 0.88, 8-September-98

      • Worked around a bug in SUN's JVM for Windows that could cause ImageJ to lock up when closing a window with changes.
      • Updated "Plug-Ins/Show Benchmark Times" to include results for Apple's MRJ 2.1ea2.
      • Fixed a bug that could cause images to become permanently locked when memory was low.
      • Fixed a minor bug in the Image/Scale command. To see the bug in action, use Acquire/URL to load the image http://rsbweb.nih.gov/~wayne/ij/images/dots.gif, and then use Image/Scale to scale it by 2.
      • When switching slices (channels) in RGBA or HSB stacks, the slice name ("red", "green", "blue", "hue", "saturation" or "brightness") is now displayed in the status bar.
      • Removed the Image/Channel sub-menu.

      Version 0.87, 20-August-98

      • Fixed several problems that caused Edit/Draw and Edit/Fill to use incorrect colors with in 8-bit images.
      • Hold down the alt (option) key to temporarily switch to the hand (panning) tool.
      • Alt-click (option-click) on an image with any tool except the magnifying glass to "pick up" a new drawing color. This is a shortcut for switching to the dropper tool, clicking on the image to select a drawing color, and then switching back to the original tool.
      • The Plug-Ins menu has a new command that tests to see how fast the JVM can draw images to the screen.

      Version 0.86, 2-July-98

      • The Benchmark plug-in has a new option that displays more times.
      • Images now display much faster when running under MRJ (MacOS Runtime for Java).

      • Worked around a problem with some versions of MRJ and Internet Explorer that caused ImageJ windows to be displayed under the the Mac menu bar.
      • Fixed another problem with the Draw command.

      Version 0.85, 22-June-98

      • Released new standalone versions for Mac OS8 and Windows. Reverted back to using JRE 1.1.5 with the Windows version because JRE 1.1.6 has a bug that causes ImageJ to hang when quiting with unsaved windows.
      • The Draw command works again.
      • Fixed a null pointer exception error (introduced in 0.83) that followed the "There are no Images open." dialog.

      Version 0.84, 19-June-98

      • New stand alone versions for Mac OS8 and Windows are available. The Mac version include source code and a Metrowerks CodeWarrior project file. The Windows version includes the source and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.1.6. There is also a much smaller ZIP file containing the class files and source but not the JRE.
      • Updated the API documentation.

      Version 0.83, 18-June-98

      • Stacks can now be saved as tiff files.

      • Added buttons to histogram windows that allow histogram values to be saved to a text file or copied to the system clipboard.
      • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused an array bounds exceptions when generating histograms of 32-bit real images.

      Version 0.82, 5-June-98

      • "Adjust Contrast" now changes the brightness and contrast of 8-bit images by updating the image's look-up table rather than its pixel values. This is particularly nice when working with stacks since brightness and contrast changes apply to all the slices in the stack.
      • Added two sample stacks to the Open menu. "MRI Stack" is a 3D MRI head scan consisting of 27 186x226 axial slices and "Scala Media Stack" is a 36 frame 3D movie of the scala media volume within the cochlea of the moustached bat.
      • Three of the larger sample images (Boats, Bridge and Gel) now download more reliably as a result of being converted from gifs to tiffs.
      • The FileOpener class now supports URLs and can open 8-bit stacks.
      • Acquire/Raw can now import multi-image 8-bit files.
      • Windows with multiple images (stacks) now have a scrollbar for selecting the image to be displayed. To see how this works, convert a color image to ARGB (alpha, red, green, blue) or to HSB (hue, saturation, brightness).

      Version 0.80, 11-May-98

      • The run() method plug-ins are required to implement is now passed a String instead of an ImagePlus. Plug-ins that need an ImagePlus object can call WindowManager.getCurrentImage(). One plug-in that used this new feature is URLOpener, which ImageJ uses to open the sample images in the Open submenu.
      • Changed the name of the URL plug-in to URLOpener.
      • The Acquire/Raw and Math commands now "remember" the popup menu selection.
      • Added a 16-bit image of the M51 galaxy to the Open submenu. As an exercise, try using Adjust Contrast to bring out detail in the galaxy. One useful trick is to select a region of interest and click on the "Auto" button.

      • The outlining tools work on zoomed images. As an exercise, try outlining a single pixel with each of the four outlining tools.

      Version 0.52, 21-Oct-97

      • The memory requirements of the 3x3 neighborhood filters (Smooth, Sharpen, etc.) were reduced. They now require free memory equal to 2 times the image size instead of 3 times.
      • An error message is now displayed when OutOfMemoryError exceptions occur.
      • Use the "Memory_Test" plug-in to see how will your JVM handles low memory situations. It will open as many 1024x1024x8-bit images as possible and then attempt to calculate how much memory was used for each image. This is a demanding test that may require ImageJ to be restarted, may crash your browser, or may even crash your machine.
