Jython 2.7.1 was released last night; see the announcement for details.

I would like to update ImageJ and Fiji to use Jython 2.7.1 instead of 2.7.0 soon, since it contains lots of bug-fixes. For those impacted by this change: could you please test it? Here are the steps:

  • Download the jython-shaded-2.7.1-SNAPSHOT.jar.
  • Place it in your ImageJ installation’s jars/ folder.
  • Delete the old jars/jython-shaded-2.7.0.jar.
  • Start up ImageJ and try some Jython scripting.

If the feedback is positive, I will release and upload the 2.7.1-based Jython support tomorrow; if negative, I’ll investigate any problems. Thanks for testing!


Hi @ctrueden,

run some scripts, no issues so far!



Hi Curtis,

it might be worth waiting a little, until the Jython developers know more about this one:




Thanks for the heads up, @ehrenfeu, it looks like the culprit was identified, so now they just need to settle on the best way forward. I guess we need to wait to upgrade ImageJ until Jython 2.7.2, then.
