What version of MinKNOW was my pod5 file generated with?

The MinKNOW version number used to generate the pod5 file can be found within the metadata and extracted using the pod5-inspect tool:


Look for the 'distribution_version' field in the output of 'pod5 inspect debug <path to pod5 file>'. Example:

$ pod5 inspect debug pod5_pass/FAU41813_pass_e6a4b621_0.pod5 | grep distribution_version 'distribution_version': '23.04.5'
