There’s been a lot of activity around Hyku in 2019. Beginning with Hyku’s promotion from Samvera Labs in February, spring has been a productive season. Several active Hyku developers are in the midst of benchmark pilot programs with community partners. The authors of the State of Samvera Technology in 2019 white paper did a wonderful job of summarizing these programs.

Aligned with this activity, there have been several updates in the online community presence for Hyku. Among them:

  • The Hyku Roadmap was created on the Samvera wiki by the Hyku Interest Group in order to add visibility to current and future Hyku developments.
  • A Hyku mailing list debuted under the Samvera banner. This is a good list for anyone who wants to be a part of the Hyku conversation to add their name to.
  • This very site was refreshed to reflect the Hyku name from the original Hydra-in-a-Box project branding. In the spirit of data preservation that is the heart of this community, the Hydra-in-a-Box legacy site is archived here.

As 2019 continues, we can look forward to more features being contributed back from pilot projects, as well as the debut of hosted Hyku services from development partners.
