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.

=== Changes in 1.4.15 (since 1.4.14) ===
+
{{Note| Due to security issues on OSX 10.12 and later, Micro-Manager does not start when opening ImageJ. To circumvent this, within the Micro-Manager folder in Applications, hold command and drag ImageJ onto the desktop. Then hold command and drag it back in. Then try running again. See [[Micro-Manager_Installation_Notes|Installation Notes]].}}
  
* New in the Main Application
+

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)

Note
Due to security issues on OSX 10.12 and later, Micro-Manager does not start when opening ImageJ. To circumvent this, within the Micro-Manager folder in Applications, hold command and drag ImageJ onto the desktop. Then hold command and drag it back in. Then try running again. See Installation Notes.
