MOAI-1.0

From the MOAI site: "MOAI is a platform for aggregating content from different sources, and publishing it through the Open Archive Initiatives protocol for metadata harvesting. It’s been built for academic institutional repositories dealing with relational metadata and asset files. The MOAI software can aggregate content from different sources, transform it and store it in a database. The contents of this database can then be published in many separate OAI feeds, each with its own configuration. MOAI is a standalone system, so it can be used in combination with any repository software that comes with an OAI feed such as Fedora Commons, EPrints or DSpace. It can also be used directly with an SQL database or just a folder of XML files.
...the MOAI software makes it as easy as possible to add or modify parts of your repository (OAI) services stack. It tries to do this without sacrificing power, and encouraging the re-use of components.
"

I remember when pyoai first came out a few years back, I think there were some zope integration components alongside it. It's great to see that this project is still in use and still being improved.

More details about getting it and installing it are on installing MOAI page, and a copy of the 1.0 source tarball is attached.

Greenstone-2.81 and 3.03

Greenstone has had a lot of writeups here over the years, and they've been busy still since the last one.

Various distributions of their latest stable 2.x release are available on their site, and a source tarball is cached here.

According to the Greenstone3 page, this major rewrite is "a complete redesign and reimplementation of the original Greenstone digital library software (Greenstone2). When complete, it will retain all the advantages of Greenstone2 - for example, it will be multilingual, multiplatform, and highly configurable. It incorporates all the features of the existing system, and is backwards compatible: that is, it can build and run existing collections without modification. Written in Java, it is structured as a network of independent modules that communicate using XML: thus it runs in a distributed fashion and can be spread across different servers as necessary. This modular design increases the flexibility and extensibility of Greenstone. Please note, Greenstone3 is our research version of Greenstone, and is still incomplete, and not stable. For a production digital library we recommend using Greenstone2."

Distributions of the 3.x release line are available on that page, and a source tarball of Greenstone3 is cached here also.

LibraryFind-0.7

As seen on oss4lib-discuss, Jeremy wrote: "We are pleased to announce the first public release of the LibraryFind metasearch software, developed by Oregon State University Libraries. LibraryFind is free software licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). This first public release, version 0.7, has a number of advanced features, such as (but not limited to): 2-click user workflow (one click to find, one click to get), an integrated OpenURL resolver, a 2-tiered caching system to improve search response time, and a customizable user interface. As this is a pre-1.0 release, there are still a number of features, functions, and efficiencies we plan to add to the software. We encourage involvement from others in the library community who are interested in working on an open source metasearch product. More information on LibraryFind, including information on how to download and run the software, can be found at libraryfind.org."

I've been working on this project, and am excited to see it out there finally. There's a lot of good stuff in there already, and I'm sure that we'll be able to improve on it rapidly with many more eyeballs on it.

fedora-2.2

From freshmeat: "This is a significant release of Fedora that includes a complete repackaging as a proper Web application. A new installer application makes it easy to setup and run. It now uses Servlet Filters for authentication. The Fedora repository can also be configured to calculate and store checksums for content. The RDF-based Resource Index has been tuned for better performance. A new high-performing RDBMS-backed triplestore has been developed that can now be plugged into the RI."
