In this release we have also been working hard on the testing and validation of the platform, and will continue doing so in the next months. A new repository has been created for this purpose, and all the possible TIFF errors have been defined and classified. This repository has been named ground truth and will be used as a tool to validate and assure the correctness of DPF Manager.
