JHOVE 1.22 release candidate 2 is now available for download and testing
JHOVE is an open source file format identification, validation and
characterisation tool for digital preservation, and part of the OPF
The major new features of this release are the addition of error IDs and
the separation of modules from the installation. There are now permanent
and unique IDs for all JHOVE error and information messages. This means
error catching need no longer be done by string matching.
The modules are now individually versioned and packaged so users can now
select, keep and update modules as they choose. This has meant making
changes to every one of JHOVE’s main modules.
There is a blog on the OPF website describing the fixes from the first
release candidate, and the inclusion of a couple of new pull requests from
If you experience any issues with the new release candidate please report

https://github.com/openpreserve/jhove/issues before Tuesday 9 April.
Just a quick reminder that our JHOVE Hack Week takes place on 8-12 April.
