Fedora 4, the new, revitalized version of the Fedora repository platform, was released into production in November. This significant release signals the effectiveness of an international and complex community driven open source project delivering a modern repository platform with features that meet or exceed current use cases in the management of institutional digital assets. Fedora 4 features include vast improvements in scalability, linked data capabilities, research data support, modularity, ease of use and more. Many institutions are taking advantage of these new benefits and opportunities by upgrading their Fedora 3 repositories or starting new projects based on Fedora 4. Following a brief project update, representatives from Columbia University, Indiana University, and the University of Virginia will discuss their current and upcoming projects based on Fedora 4 that make use of the platform’s new capabilities.
