ImagingBook’s core library imagingbook-common provides most of the functionality required by the demo ImageJ plugins that supplement each book chapter. It helps to keep the plugins slim, avoids code duplication, and makes the code easily portable to other environments.

For users who want to use imagingbook-common in their Maven projects, the library is now (starting with release 1.5) available as a public Maven artefact. See here for further details.
