We present a new update of the DPF Manager. This new version can be downloaded as usual from the PREFORMA Open Source Portal.

This new version includes several improvements and fixes. One of the most interesting new features is the Statistics Module. This new section reports the most usual tags found in the analyzed files, as well as their values. Also from the ISOs validated, it is shown the errors that have been found ordered by frequency.

The rest of the enhancements and bugfixes of this new release are listed below.

  • Improved reports section efficiency.
  • Filter unreadable tags in reports.
  • Fixed some errors related with the metadata fixer.
  • Added default configuration to periodical checks definition.

In the next release, we plan to create a benchmarking tool where the DPF Manager will be compared with other well-known TIFF validators such as Jhove and Jhove2.

Don’t forget to give us feedback to continue improving the project!
