Archivematica development roadmap

This roadmap describes what Artefactual is working on for the Archivematica system. Sponsored work, that is development of features and enhancements which is funded by our development partners, is prioritized. On our wishlist, we have also included enhancements and features that we would like to see or that the community has shown interest in; however, without development resources allocated to us or contributions from developers outside of Artefactual, we cannot guarantee their inclusion.

Reflecting the bounty business model for open source development, each feature is developed in partnership with an institution or group of institutions with unique workflow needs. Despite our best efforts to keep features as generic as possible, some extra development may be necessary for a feature to function well in your own environment. Please see the Archivematica services offered on Artefactual's website to find out more about how to become a development partner, get training and support, or take advantage of installation services.

We will issue public releases incrementally upon completion and testing of the sponsored features and enhancements listed below. All features are subject to code review and QA, the results of which may result in any feature being pushed to a future release.
