(11 September 2014) The International Image Interoperability Framework community (http://iiif.io/) is pleased to announce the release of the second major version of its specifications intended to provide a shared layer for dynamic interactions with images and the structure of the collections and objects of which they are part. These APIs are used in production systems to enable cross-institutional integration of content, via mix and match of best of class front end applications and servers.
This release adds additional functionality derived from real world use cases needed by partners within the community, and reflects more than a year of experience with the previous versions and significant input from across the cultural heritage community. It also formalizes many of the aspects that were implicit in the initial versions and puts into place a manageable framework for sustainable future development. Detailed change notes are available.
