METS Editor Development

Future Plans

Almost all planned features have now been completed. Only a few pending ideas remain as of now.

  • Add ability to drag multiple pages around the structure map simultaneously.
  • Introduction of quality control panel for visually validating images and creating table of contents while viewing thumbnails for each page, rather than just the tree views
  • Moving all translations to external language packs for easy introduction of new languages ( such as Kreyol, Italian, Dutch, etc.. )

If there is a feature you are interested in seeing introduced, please contact the primary programmer at The source code is also freely available, so feel free to have a crack at it. If you do add new features, please contact the primary programmer so your features can be re-introduced into the code base for others.
