Microscope server 2.5.0 beta 2

Hi all,

I’m pushing out a new beta release of the OpenFlexure Microscope Server today.

If you want to help test, please run

sudo ofm upgrade -u https://build.openflexure.org/openflexure-microscope-server/openflexure-microscope-server-v2.5.0-beta.2.tar.gz

from your microscope shell.

The main changes are an upgrade the the LabThings library powering the server, and the inclusion of a slide scanner tab (designed for IHI) in the interface, without needing an extension.

For more information on the underlying LabThings changes, please see https://github.com/labthings/python-labthings/releases/tag/v1.0.0-beta.1

The usual beta release disclaimers apply here! This version has not been extensively tested, so while it seems to work fine to me, bugs will happen. Do not use this for anything mission-critical.

Thanks!

Update 2020-09-14: Released beta 2. Instructions updated.
