JHOVE Evaluation & Stabilisation Plan

JHOVE Evaluation & Stabilisation Plan. Open Preservation Foundation. March 2015.
JHOVE is an extensible software framework for performing format identification, validation, and characterization of digital objects. In February the JHOVE format validation tool was transferred to Open Preservation Foundation stewardship. Their initial review of JHOVE has been completed and the Evaluation & Stabilisation Plan is now available on the site. 

The main objective of our work to date has been to establish a firm foundation for future changes based on agile software development best practises. A further technical evaluation will be published in April that will also outline options for possible future development and maintenance tasks.
