Codenamed Islandora CLAW during development, Islandora 8.x is an upgrade that brings together Drupal 8 with modern Fedora. A major re-architecting from Islandora 7.x, this newest version of the platform makes better use of its component pieces, for a front-end experience that feels more like vanilla Drupal and puts site building in the hands of non-developers. The new Islandora also works natively with linked data, can be mounted over nearly any type of filesystem, and opens up a world of third-party tools and widgets from the Drupal community to manage and enhance repositories. This project briefing will feature an overview of the Islandora 8.x platform, a look at some pilot projects already making use of the new Islandora, and a roadmap for what comes next.
