Hi Michael,

Glad to hear that OpenSlide has been useful for you!

The bug you're looking for is #42.  This isn't a MIRAX problem 
specifically; OpenSlide needs some new API in order to support 
fluorescence images.

Which bugs are you encountering?  It would help us prioritize fixes.

Also: do you make significant use of MIRAX 1.8 slides in your group?  I 
wasn't sure how widely version 1.8 is used.

That would be great!  I'll email you privately to discuss.
