Is there a particular variant you're concerned about?

These Hamamatsu and MIRAX variants are known *not* to be supported:

- Fluorescence images (bug #42)
- Hamamatsu NDPI (#49)
- MIRAX slides with CURRENT_SLIDE_VERSION < 1.9 (#96)
- MIRAX slides with PNG- and BMP-formatted tiles (#110)

I cannot predict when they will be supported.  If a particular feature 
is important to you, the best way to get it is to have an experienced 
programmer work with the community to contribute it to OpenSlide.
