The Islandora team released 2 new version last week:
- Islandora 12.2.0 (the latest Drupal 6-compatible version) features a new version of the book solution pack, along with improvements and bug fixes to many other modules. You can read about all the changes in the release notes: https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/ISLANDORA6122/Release+Notes+and+Downloads.
- Islandora 7 is the 1st release of our new Drupal 7-compatible release, and features a host of new behind-the-scenses changes, reflecting a move to help the community make better use of the Drupal part of the framework.
Islandora 7 makes use of the Tuque API and reflects our new testing approach. You can access Tuque and more technical documentation as well as test results at https://hudson.islandora.ca/.
We are proud of the new Islandora 7, especially with the 2-week sprint that we did prior to release. It has convinced us that there is no better way to focus on a big coding challenge and "get er done"! Many thanks to the DiscoveryGarden and UPEI teams for pulling this off. Expect more soon on the Islandora 7 front.
Go to the Islandora downloads page to get the latest, or go to the Sandbox site (https://sandbox.islandora.ca/). The Sandbox site will be a good demonstration of the power of Islandora, as both Drupal 6 and 7 versions are running in the virtual machine and using a single Fedora instance. The 7 version is not quite ready so I will announce it when it is.
