New Revisions of the Image and Presentation APIs, First Version of Search API Released

Date: 12 May 2016

Author: Jon Stroop


We are pleased to announce revised versions of the Image and Presentation APIs:

These are minor revisions which do not impose any backward-incompatible changes, and reflect 20 months of refinement based on community feedback and implementation. Changes are described in the Image API Change Log and Presentation API Change Log.

Additionally, we would like to announce the first release of the IIIF Search API. This API defines a syntax for searching within resources and is designed to be idiomatic to annotations that are implemented as described the IIIF Presentation API.

Thank you, as always, to the IIIF community for your feedback, questions, and use cases. New questions and use cases are always welcome, and we encourage you to submit them to the IIIF Discussion Listserv.

Sincerely,

The IIIF Editors: Michael Appleby, Tom Crane, Robert Sanderson, Jon Stroop, Simeon Warner
