August 2012 Software Development Update
Benetech is gearing up for the next big release of Poet in September, which will include support for creating metadata that can be used in the DIAGRAM content model. That means that each image can have multiple descriptions associated with it, as well as an SVG file. This lays the groundwork for upcoming EPUB3 support as well. We’re also adding more help files in anticipation of more piloting this fall and more users.
Progress also continues on the DIAGRAM subcontracts, and we’ll have more updates in the next few weeks as they each conclude preliminary data gathering phases and move into more specific design and development phases.
