While stranded in an Edinburgh hotel during a particularly snowy start to March 2018, I started creating this blog in the hope it’s useful.

Like many people, I also create or contribute to open source software in the hope these contributions are useful too.

But software has bugs. People can be wrong. Scripts might not work.

Sometimes it’s a mistake from the person who wrote the software. Sometimes it’s a misunderstanding about what the software should do. And sometimes the software may have worked under some conditions, but not the conditions under which it is used later.

It should be clear that the software described here must be used with caution (like all software), and with the knowledge that it is provided as-is, and without warranty of any kind. If that isn’t acceptable, then don’t use it. The same applies to QuPath itself and any scripts provided.

This blog gives what I hope will be a friendly place to discuss potential changes and improvements, alongside the other user forums and GitHub discussions available.

A few more specifics are included below.
