Workshop on preservation and JHOVE2

A workshop on digital preservation and JHOVE2 will be held at FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) in Rome, Italy on May 23-27. Presenters will include Stephen Abrams and Perry Willett from California Digital Library, Tom Cramer from Stanford, and Sheila Morrissey from Portico. Days 1 and 2 (on preservation) are free; there is a $300 fee for the JHOVE2 tutorial.

JHOVE2 2.0.0

JHOVE2 2.0.0 has been released. Supported formats are ICC Color Profile, SGML, Shapefile, TIFF, UTF-8, WAVE, and XML. The first three of these aren’t supported by the old JHOVE. There’s also a Zip module which validates files within a Zip repository, but not the Zip file itself. JHOVE2 can be downloaded in Zip or Gzip form, or from the Mercurial repository.

Congratulations to everyone who worked on this project!
