    1313A lot of development has been going over the last 9 months. Many new functions have been added and existing ones have been enhanced. The plan is to release a final version 2.1 of the catalog software towards the end of April 2007. Here's a summary of what has been developed for this release:
    1414
    15 * Support for the ISO-19115 metadata standard, formatted and validated against the ISO-19139 implementation schema.
     15* Support for the ISO-19115 metadata standard, formatted and validated against the ISO-19139 implementation schema [wiki:115and139Confusion Read more].

    1717The ISO19115-19139 standards seem to confuse many, many people. Here's a short attempt to clarify the situation :-)
     
    2020To confuse things more, many software started implementing different versions of the ISO-19115 standard :( The !GeoNetwork development team decided back in 2002 to use the Draft International Standard version of ISO-19115 (ISO-19115:DIS). This version of the standard (not yet standard at that point) provided a DTD and was as such the only version that could have a formal checking of its structure. !GeoNetwork used (and still supports) short element names in its XML representation.

    22 For !GeoNetwork 2.1 we have now created a migration procedure to convert the ISO-19115:DIS formatted metadata into a structure that complies with the formal ISO-19115:2003 standard and that validates against the ISO-19139 schema version 0.6
     22For !GeoNetwork 2.1 we have now created a migration procedure to convert the ISO-19115:DIS formatted metadata into a structure that complies with the formal ISO-19115:2003 standard and that validates against the ISO-19139 schema as [http://eden.ign.fr/xsd/isotc211/20060504 released on 4 May 2006] referred to as 'final Release candidate for TS'.

     24GeoNetwork opensource still supports the 19115:DIS format for backward compatibility, but it is foreseen that that format will be less exposed to users to facilitate transition to the new format and avoid a bit of confusion :-)
