Version 1.4.1 (TBD)

  • Update Tika to v.1.19.1 due to security vulnerability.
  • Add m4a file extension to file utility tool exclusion list to avoid format conflict with Exiftool thus resulting in metadata output.
  • Add m4a file and test.

Version 1.4.0 (11/7/2018)

  • Added mp3 to Jhove file exclusion list in fits.xml; Add unit tests for mp3 files.
  • DROID updated to version 6.4; updated signature file to V94.
    • There have been two minor modifications to this signature file. See the README.txt file within the same tools/droid folder where the signature file is located.
  • Tika updated to version 1.19.1.
    • There are now Tika outputs warnings -- which have been turned off via a new Tika configuration file -- about not processing JPEG2000 files. This is due to a missing (intentionally omitted) dependency that is not compatible with the Apache 2.0 license (for both Tika and FITS). This can be added independently. See: JAI Image I/O
    • This new Tika configuration file, tika-config.xml, has been added to the directory xml/tika/. See Apache Tika Configuration to turn these warning messages back on.
  • Exiftool updated to version 11.14.
    • This version tends to identify PDF/A documents as only PDF whereas earlier versions identified as PDF/A. However, other tools properly identify PDF/A documents. As a result, in rare cases metadata identified only by Exiftool is dropped due its less specific file identification.
  • Other bug fixes.

Version 1.3.0 (6/7/2018)

  • Allow for Java heap size to be set in the Unix (fits-env.sh) and Windows (fits.bat) shell scripts.
  • The ZIP file artifact is now built using Maven instead of Ant. The output of this file is in the target directory.

Version 1.2.1 (4/10/2018)

  • Fix XSLT error on processing multi-page TIFF files. Only first value (from first page of a multi-page) of X- and Y-sampling frequency is used to calculate sampling frequency in FITS metadata.
  • Add ability to point to external fits.xml config file from command line using parameter -f
  • Embedded 'file utility' tool, which accesses OS level 'file' application now provides additional data on OSX 10.12.6. This data needs to be normalized via XSLT to avoid conflicts in section of FITS metadata output.
  • Fix Jhove XSLT not propertly pulling image height.
  • Greatly reduced console output from unit test suite.
  • Upgrade to Jhoave 1.20.0 -- results in additional metadata output.
  • Add additional format output normalization to Jhove for WAVE files.
  • Add additional format output normalization to File Utility for XML files.

Version 1.2.0 (8/16/2017)

  • Addition of new ContainerMD schema to FITS output. This format handle ZIP files. All metadata output is generated by the embedded DROID tool.
  • DROID updated to version 6.3.
  • DROID signature file update to version 90 (from version 82).
  • Remove the deprecated static member from the Java class FitsOutput.
  • Add additional normalization for Word Perfect formats in format_map.txt.
  • Update to latest OTS JAR file.
  • Update hierarchy for JPEG EXIF file format in fits_format_tree.xml.
  • Add m4a file extension to DROID tool exclusion list in fits.xml since DROID misidentifies as a video file.

Version 1.1.1 (5/30/2017)

  • In the class FitsOutput.java, the instance method getFitsVersion() reflects the version of FITS that generated the FitsOutput instance, which could be a version different than the version of FITS currently being used. (The version of FITS in use is reflected by the value Fits.VERSION.
  • A new configuration value has been added to fits.xml. The DROID tool within FITS has been modified so that it can process large files such as .mov and .mxf files much faster while providing the same metadata since metadata in those files can be retrieved at the beginning of the file. The new attribute <droid_read_limit include-exts="mov,mxf" read-limit-kb="64" /> allows for configuring which file types to limit processing by DROID and by what amount.

Version (1.1.0) (5/1/2017)

Due to changes in the public API in Fits.java and FitsOutput.java, and how new tools must be implemented to be included in FITS, the minor version number has been incremented.

  • Some static members of Fits.java have been changed to be instance variables with getters.
  • In FitsOutput.java the public static VERSION member is now accessed via a getter. The deprecated static VERSION will be removed in a future release. VERSION and the new method, getFitsVersion() currently give the version of the FITS version currently being run. In the next release the method getFitsVersion() will reflect the version of FITS that generated the FitsOutput instance, which could be a version different than the version of FITS being used.
  • All new classes that implement the interface Tool.java can now also have a 1-argument constructor that takes Fits as an argument in order to access Fits members that were previously static. See the method createToolClassInstance() in ToolBelt.java to see how this is implemented with Reflection. For backward comptibility, the standard no-arg constructor still works.
  • Refactor JUnit tests to bring common functionality into new base class for XMLUnit tests.

Version 1.0.7 (3/22/2017)

  • LIBDRS-5676 FITS fails when attempting to convert a non-numeric String to an Integer or Double during conversion of FITS metadata to MIX format (and possibly to other standard output formats).
  • FitsException.java and FitsToolException.java now take a Throwable rather than Exception as constructor arguments.
  • Update JHOVE to version 1.16.5 (from 1.11).
  • Add 'zip' file extension to the JHOVE exclusion list in fits.xml.

Version 1.0.6 (3/2/2017)

  • LIBDRS-5575 - Fix XSLT of tool output for JPEG EXIF files to provide better MIX metadata output.
  • Update to most recent version of the OTS JAR file.

Version 1.0.5 (2/1/17)

  • Update to most recent version of the OTS JAR file.

Version 1.0.4 (12/6/16)

  • LIBDRS-5209 - FITS fails to generate MIX output for certain TIFFs

Version 1.0.3 (10/18/16)

  • LIBDRS-5053 - Add additional format and mimetype normalizations for MS Word documents.
  • Remove source code from distribution release on http://fitstool.org as it should only be available on GitHub.
  • LIBDRS-5076 - change logging message to WARN (from ERROR) when unable to convert FITS output to standard schema.

Version 1.0.2 (10/13/16)

  • FITS startup scripts resolve symlinks before loading relative paths. Pull Request 90.
  • Bug fix for File Utility detecting HTML files. Pull request 102.
  • Bug fix for File Utility handling XML files. Pull request 104.
  • LIBDRS-4878 - MIX metadata not extracted from some TIFF files.

Version 1.0.1 (7/20/16)

  • LIBDRS-4440 - Add "typeLabel" attribute on the Ebucore "containerFormat/comment" so that consumers of the Ebucore technical metadata can clearly differentiate between the format and formatProfile data created.
  • LIBDRS-4571 - Improved error handling by adding input file name when problem creating standard schema output.
  • LIBDRS-4677 - Bug fixes related to handling of certain types of video files via the FITS API.

Version 1.0.0 (6/24/16)

  • Update licensing at top of source files for consistency across FITS project.
  • Integrate Video containing Closed Caption Roles and Relationships into FITS.
  • Add .pcd file extension to JHOVE tool exclusion list in fits.xml.
  • Remove font tag prefixes from JHOVE font output when processing PDF's; update corresponding tests; Bring all JHOVE XSLT up to 2.0.
  • Remove unit tests using protected word processing files -- these files not handled by FITS.
  • Make executable scripts have execute flag set in build.xml.
  • Change compiler compliance to Java 7. Was mistakenly set at Java 8.
  • Include Javadocs in fits.zip release artifact.
  • Exclude video files from being processed by Tika. File extensions added to TikaTool in fits.xml.
  • FITS JAR file build artifact now contains version number as part of file name.
  • Create FITS output and, optionally, DocumentMD schema output for word processing formats (.doc, .docx, .epub, .odt, .pdf, .wp, .rtf, .wpd).
  • All test classes now use JUnit 4 annotations.
  • All test classes that use XmlUnit no longer extend XmlUnit but, instead, use utility classes.
  • Some (but not yet all) test classes extend AbstractLoggingTest which loads a new Log4j configuration file, tests.log4j.properties, so that test logging can be set at different levels than the default log4j.properties file that is used by the FITS application.
  • Separate logging for unit tests that extend base class AbstractLoggingTest.java which uses tests.log4j.properties to initialize logging.
  • Fits.java now only initializes logging with this project's log4j.properties if the system property "log4j.configuration" hasn't already been set, possibly by an external system using FITS. This allows for not overriding the setting of the test classes as well.
  • Make FITS logging via Log4j configuration file initialized externally by setting the Log4j environment variable -Dlog4j.configuration=/path/to/log4j.properties or -Dlog4j.configuration=file://path/to/log4j.properties more robust with fallback to default properties if property does not exist, is invalid, or exception is thrown.
  • Many bug fixes and performance improvements.

Version 0.10.2 (4/12/16)

  • Add MXF codec creation from CodecId, as CodecCC is not present.
  • Add validation of codecs in ots descriptor validation for MXF (ots).
  • Remove some mimetypes from valid list in ots descriptor validation (ots).
  • Normalize format name "Exchangeable Image File Format (Uncompressed)" for TIFF files to "Exchangeable Image File Format"
  • Update AES31.jar
  • Revised logic to properly handle video aspect ratio in ebucore.
  • Add additional MXF codecs for video validation (ots).
  • Revise call to instantiate AudioObject for AES generation due to revision in ots.jar for handling xsi namespace declaration during parsing.
  • Add closed caption role (ots).
  • Add HAS_SUPPLEMENT relationship to VideoObject (ots).

Version 0.10.1 (3/4/16)

  • fits.jar is no longer included in source control since it is the primary build artifact of this project. It will be available only in a FITS released ZIP file.
  • fits.jar is no longer needed to run unit tests. All source files are compiled to the 'build' directory rather than being compiled into the source directories. This 'build' directory is now used to resolve classes rather than fits.jar.
  • Revised code to now output a streamSize attribute for the Video tracks.
  • Due to a NumberFormatException caused by using too large a numeric String to create an Integer, revised code to hold data in an Ebucore TechnicalAttributeLong.
  • Remove the following from being processed by JHOVE due to slowness of precessing: avi,mov,mpg,mpeg,mkv,mp4,mpeg4,m2ts,mxf,ogv,mj2,divx,dv,m4v,m2v,ismv
  • Move normalization for Quicktime and MPEG-4 to correct files

  • Added the latest OTS jar file with Codec changes and additional Video MIME type inclusion.
  • Removed a conflict for DROID with some XML files.
  • Removed some TODO and TBD defaults in Video byteOrder and compression.
  • Removed default of video scanType for 'apcn'.
  • Added MediaInfo video "standard" for FITS and Ebucore broadcastStandard.
  • FITS-129 - Bug fix - Identity section of output does not properly remove tool identifying less specific file and mime type.

Version 0.9.0 (12/7/15)

This release contains a major refactoring of how JAR files are handled by the tools that are Java-based. JAR files specific to each tool are loaded within their own custom class loader. Details for configuring a new Java-based tool are in edu.harvard.hul.ois.fits.tools.ToolBelt.java and on the fitstool site. Video - Normalized height and width values in FITS default output. Update of the following tools used by FITS:

  • DROID 6.1.5
  • ExifTool 10.00
  • Tika 1.10
  • NLNZ Metadata Extractor 3.6GA
  • JHOVE 1.11

'm2ts' files are now included in MediaInfo tool and excluded from Exiftool tool. Revised licensing details of MediaInfo 3rd party libraries. log4j.properties has been moved to the top level directory.

Version 0.8.10 (10/21/15)

NOTE: This is the first official release of Video support using the MediaInfo tool.

Out of the box, the FITS MediaInfo tool will ONLY be supporting the following 64-bit OSes:

Windows 7 - 64-bit
Mac OS X -  64-bit
Red Hat 6.x - 64-bit

These come preconfigured for MediaInfo release 0.7.75.

For more information about the MediaInfo tool, please see:

https://mediaarea.net

It is important to know that you MUST use a 64-bit JVM (JDK or JRE) to use the MediaInfo tool as it is distributed in FITS.

The FITS MediaInfo tool will detect whether the OS is Windows/Mac OS X/LINUX and dynamically load the associated MediaInfo libraries for any of these OSes.

If you wish to use a LINUX distribution other than Red Hat 6.x, or for more trouble-shooting details, please see:

http://projects.iq.harvard.edu/fits/faq
