FADGI (Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative) is pleased to announce that one of its premiere products, BWF MetaEdit<https://mediaarea.net/BWFMetaEdit>, is getting an upgrade! BWF MetaEdit is a free, open source tool that supports embedding, validating, and exporting of metadata in Broadcast WAVE Format (BWF) files, including support for the FADGI authored Guideline for Federal Agency Use of Broadcast WAVE Files<http://www.digitizationguidelines.gov/guidelines/digitize-embedding.html>. Since its initial release in 2009 through AVP<https://www.weareavp.com/products/bwf-metaedit/>, BWF MetaEdit has become an essential part of many audio digitization workflows, with active users from diverse communities of practice with over 40,000 downloads and counting. Working with Jerome Martinez of MediaArea<https://mediaarea.net/> and Dave Rice of RiceCapades over the next two years, improvements to BWF MetaEdit will include support for resolving outstanding issues as well as adding new features and capabilities. FADGI will encourage community feedback as the process moves forward (through the GitHub issue tracker<https://github.com/MediaArea/BWFMetaEdit/issues> and other means) and is committed to supporting open source projects.
