5.0 RC2 is out. Doing some cleanup and small changes. Emory has been helping out on the maintenance working group sprint again, which has been helpful.

RCs are usually just small changes but these are sometimes more significant because of trying to get the specs running in Valkyrie. There may be double work happening with the Valkyrie migration branch. Daniel will take a look at that branch.

New energy in the Hyrax codebase recently, which is exciting.

Post Valkyrization Work

  • working on the adapters for Fedora and Postgres

  • Fix the Analytics

  • Rails upgrades

  • Sunset ActiveFedora

  • IIIF Viewer enhancements

    • Swapability

    • Update UV version

    • Maybe make RIIIF more optional and give guidance for serverless-iiif

Developer Congress

  • Updated container documentation to include Serenia

  • Testing of Hyrax 5rc2
