Where to get the latest development build

This project is built and tested by the ImageJ Jenkins server:

The latest builds including sources and javadoc attachments are available on that web site, too.

How to build yourself

This project is a regular Maven project, drawing on the SciJava project. You can import it into your IDE of choice (such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Netbeans, etc) or build it from the command-line:

mvn exec:java -Dexec.mainClass="spim.microOpenSPIM"

This builds the µOpenSPIM JFX application which can load µManager 2.0 by pointing the µManager installed location.
