Hi,

 

METS 1.7 is available at
http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/version17/mets.v1-7.xsd 

 

It will replace http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/mets.xsd in a month if
no problems are found.

 

Change requests for the next version of METS are being collected here 

http://www.socialtext.net/mim-2006/index.cgi?mets_1_8_change_requests

 

METS 1.7 changes:

 

Imports xlink from http://www.loc.gov/standards/xlink/xlink.xsd rather
than http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/xlink.xsd to harmonize with MODS
and EAD.

 

Created parType complex type to allow a seq to contain a par.

structmap

 

Created a FILECORE attribute group with MIMETYPE, SIZE, CHECKSUM,
CHECKSUMTYPE, CREATED; added to mdType and mdRef so they get the core
file attributes

_for_metadata

 

Added PREMIS:OBJECT PREMIS:AGENT PREMIS:RIGHTS PREMIS:EVENT to MDTYPE
value enumeration

r_specific_premis_schemas

 

I have checked the new schema against all the example METS in the
registered METS profiles and all the samples validate using the 1.7
schema.
