Description (last modified by curtis) (diff)

One initial approach we took when developing ImageJ2 was a new ij.process.ImageProcessor implementation called ImgLibProcessor, that provided ImgLib-backed image data. We also experimented with the idea of overriding the ImageStack. In this way, we could add support for new pixel types to ImageJ1 without breaking existing code.

In order for ImgLibProcessor to work, we needed quite a few minor changes to ImageJ1 codebase to rework the assumption that no other ImageProcessor subclasses (besides Byte, Short, Float and Color) could exist. We maintained these changes in an area called ij1-patches, and worked with Wayne Rasband to get them brought into the official IJ1 distribution.

Ultimately, however, Wayne deemed that this approach represented too much change to the ImageJ1 codebase, and we were forced to find an alternative approach (see ticket #1011 for details).

This ticket exists only to document the history of that work.
