Open Boats. Use pure IJ2 implementation of File Save As and specify Boats.bmp. An unknown format exception is thrown. I assume SCIFIO doesn't yet support BMP.

Bio-Formats does not currently have a BMP Writer, just a Reader, so this behavior is currently appropriate.

As this ticket represents adding functionality not supported in BF, I'm changing it to an enhancement instead of a defect, and marking it for review so we can discuss whether or not we want a BMP Writer in SCIFIO/Bio-Formats.

Yes, we need a SCIFIO BMP writer. Ultimately we will need a SCIFIO writer for every format ImageJ 1.x supports exporting out of the box. The only exception is microscopy-specific formats; we will still need writers for those, but those may stay in Bio-Formats under the GPL. We can discuss case by case.

Added #1779 feature ticket, to ensure SCIFIO has all image IO capabilities that are present in IJ1.

Moving to beta 10, as this is a compatibility issue.
