    • New PI GCS adapter (Stephen Rau)
    • Improved Thorlabs DCxxxx (Olf Wohlmann)
    • PCO adapter now supports new CMOS cameras (Franz Reitner)
    • Support for nPoint stages (Mission Bay Imaging)
    • XCite LED (Mission Bay Imaging)
    • Thorlabs piezo stage (Nenad Amodaj)

    • Coherent Sapphire Laser (Karl Hoover and Paul Wiggins)
    • GigECamera (David Marshburn, UNC-CH)
    • Mac support for SPOT (Erwin Frise)
    • Meiji Techno EMZ focus stage (Koen De Vleeschauwer)
    • Tethered Cameras (Canon and Nikon) (Koen De Vleeschauwer)
    • X-Cite 120PC Exacte (Mission Bay Imaging)
    • Image Processor Chain - provides sequencing of C++-based image processors in the Micro-Manager core
  • Pluggable display API (ImageCacheListener)
  • Split View Plugin restored to 1.4
  • Clojure Editor Plugin
  • Fixes to ZeissCAN29
  • Changes in Hardware Configuration Wizard
  • Thorlabs BD102 stage (Nenad Amodaj)

  • Script interface to add runnables in acquisition engine
  • SimpleCam module with GPhoto support
  • Enhanced Contrast Panels (ignore outliers)
  • Saving and display on separate threads
  • Leica AFC (Hardware Autofocus) (mostly working)
  • Close integration with ImageJ hyperstacks
    • four "dimension sliders": channels, slices, frames, positions
    • display of RAM- or disk-based image sets during or after acquisition, including disk-based image sets larger than available RAM
  • An image display controls panel (in the main window) that lets you
    • easily adjust contrast for each channel
    • add a scale bar
    • view metadata and add comments for image sets and individual image planes
  • A new multi-dimensional acquisition engine (under the hood), including
    • a smart sequencer that uses burst acquisition whenever possible
    • an image pipeline allowing plugins to process images on the fly
    • a flexible metadata system for programmers
  • Support for color cameras has been substantially extended. You can now use color cameras in snap, live, acquire, and multi-dimensional acquisition.
  • Simplified hardware configuration, including auto-detection and auto-setup of a number of serial devices.
  • Data Browser plugin for quickly browsing through Micro-Manager data sets
  • Windows native 64-bit support (only some devices are supported)
  • Automated bug reports, available in Help > Report Problem
  • Optional automated upload of new configurations to micro-manager.org

(Please note that burst acquisition (formerly a separate utility in 1.3) has been merged with multi-dimensional acquisition -- if you want to do a burst, simply select "Time Points" only and set the time interval to 0.)
