Fedora 3.0 Beta 2 released

The second beta release of Fedora 3.0 is now available for testing. This release completes most of the features planned for the general 3.0 release this fall. I'm personally most excited by the new Content Model Architecture (CMA), an integrated structure for persisting and delivering the essential characteristics of digital objects in Fedora, which replaces the previous architecture for binding objects, behaviors and mechanisms. Formal instantiation of content models opens up interesting new avenues for work flows and validation. That this new architecture also allows for easier modification of mechanisms is a huge operational boon.

Read the announcement for more details on the release.
