 +====== RIMMF4 ======
  
 +RIMMF3 has reached a period of stability. We will continue to fix bugs, make minor changes, and keep up-to-date with the RDA Registry as much as possible((although some of the changes coming down the road will make the latter problematic)).
 +
 +But its time to look ahead.
 +
 +We have begun working on RIMMF4. 
 +
 +The immediate objectives of RIMMF4 are:
 +
 +  * replace the RIMMF text format with an RDF serialization 
 +  * replace the element tables distributed in RIMMF3 with direct downloads from RDA Registry
 +  * separate the EI (entity index) from the discovery interface
 +  * easy conversion of RIMMF3 data folders to RDF
 +
 +Some longer term objectives are:
 +
 +  * support the restructured RDA/LRM, and new concepts like: the fourfold path, nomens, etc.
 +  * some form of uri management
 +  * triplestore cataloging
 +  * publish an API for sharing user vocabulary terms
 +  * develop machine-readable SES for formatting structured descriptions
 +  * support layers of metadata: metadata about entity records, metadata about statements  
 +
 +And we will continue to support RIMMF3 features such as:
 +
 +  * RDA Registry-based language support and automatic updating
 +  * MARC-to-RDA and RDA-to-MARC conversion
 +
 +Expected ETA: 
 +
 +2018 (immediate objectives)
 +2019 (longer term objectives)
