As many of you know, we at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media have been busy working on the next generation of Omeka, Omeka S.
Omeka S is different from Omeka Classic (aka, the 2.x series) in several respects, both in conception and in technology stack.
The two primary conceptual differences are that 1) it aims to be ‘multisite’, fitting the needs of institutions that need to deploy many Omeka sites from one installation, and 2) it aims to have better interoperability with other systems, such as Fedora, DSpace, and Linked Open Data.

See the developer documentation.
Developers will also be interested in browsing the code for Omeka S modules in the modules organization.
Current packaged releases of Omeka S are available on the releases page.
The technology stack requirements for Omeka S move to significantly more contemporary practices and technologies.
- MySql 5.5.3+ and the MySQL driver for PDO
- PHP 5.6+ (the latest stable version preferred) and the PHP extensions for PDO
- Optional, to create thumbnails: ImageMagick version 6.7.5 or greater, the PHP imagick extension, or the PHP gd extension
Omeka uses the following libraries, among others:
