The latest release of the remote microscope software, version
1.0alpha3, is now available in source code form.  The code has been
running on CNRI's demo microscope for a few weeks, and I've been
pleased with the results; the server seems to be much more reliable
than 1.0a2, and people have liked the new Z-axis control.

The only significant new feature in this release is that you can now
control the Z-axis from the client, in order to manually focus an
image when the autofocus produces a blurry result.  There's also a
host of minor fixes and improvements; most notably, various bugs were
found that made the server hang indefinitely.  These bugs have been
fixed, and consequently the 1.0alpha3 server is a lot more stable than
