|Islandora 6 or 7?||Jeremy Echols||7/27/12 1:39 PM|
If we're looking to put together a new system, would it be better to start with 7 so we aren't having to face an upgrade later, or is it still too early in the 7.x lifecycle? Is there any timeline for when the Drupal 7 version of Islandora will be considered stable?
I'm doing some module work based on the basic image solution pack, and I'm getting the impression that 7 is still in the very early stages. But I'm also finding that my lack of Drupal and Islandora knowledge is getting in the way a lot, so it's very possible that I'm just misinterpreting what I'm seeing here.

The Drupal 7 version of Islandora is indeed at an early stage, but
we'll be shifting heavily into Drupal 7 development in August. We'll
be bringing all the current Drupal 6 solution pack functionality
(basic image, large image, book, PDF, and audio) into the Drupal 7
version of Islandora, and in many cases we'll be adding improvements
to these solution packs. The vast majority of new Islandora
development going forward will happen in the Drupal 7 version. In
terms of stability, we will likely have a full Drupal 7 release in the
fall as part of our regular release cycle.
Hope this helps!

How's I7 coming?
I've installed the 7.x Release branch from islandora/islandora, and the most recent commit was over 2 months ago. I'm wondering if I've got the right version, or if there's another public branch that the Drupal 7 commits are going to?
