veraPDF, one of the three open source projects funded in the framework in PREFORMA, is considered “a crucial technical success by providing the definitive implementation of a PDF/A validation tool, which was released in version 0.14 earlier this year. Such a tool is eagerly awaited by organisations around the world and will certainly have a huge impact in the preservation community and beyond. The project also supports important on-going collaboration with the PDF Association.” (Ross King, Austrian Institute of Technology, Chair of the Board of Directors of OPF).
