The DILCIS Board is proud to announce the official release of the next generation of E-ARK specifications! The new releases include a number of bug fixes and other updates which were only possible thanks to the huge amount of valuable feedback from the archival community in early 2019! We would like to thank you all and welcome everyone to both use and contribute to the specifications!
