Courtney, Peter, and all of the Archivematica Team,

Congratulations on this final beta release!  Looking over the documentation I'm especially excited to try out and evaluate the Transfer to Backlog process and the extension for Preservation Planning that you've implemented with the FPR and mapping for updates to UDFR and PRONOM.

As soon as the packages for the Virtual Appliances are ready we'll being our evaluation!

Hi Kari, good to hear from you. Glad to hear you're excited about the new features. Please do give us feedback when you start testing. One note, the FPR is still in its beginning stages, so the updates from UDFR and PRONOM are coming in a later iteration. I'll have the complete user manual and directions for the FPR up by early next week.

Virtual appliances should be up by tomorrow afternoon.
