Fedora 6.0 Webinar - Features and Highlights

No sessions are currently scheduled for this event. To request a new session, please contact membersupport@lyrasis.org


Fedora 6.0 was officially released in June. The design and development of Fedora 6.0 was guided by three goals: improve the digital preservation feature set, support migrations from all previous versions of the software, and improve performance and scalability. Drawing on community input at all stages, we are delighted to announce that we got there. This webinar will provide an overview of Fedora 6.0, which includes the following features:

  • Oxford Common File Layout (OCFL) persistence
  • Robust migration tooling and documentation
  • Improved performance and scale
  • Built-in simple search
  • Minimal API changes

Members of the Fedora governance group will join us to provide some context on the Fedora program more broadly: where did we come from, where are we going, and what are the principles that continue to guide us more than 20 years after the original Fedora whitepaper was published in 1997.
