Islandora 8 was released last June without built-in support for paged content. Our community placed a very high priority on correcting that omission and getting books and newspapers ready for migration from collections in islandora 7. Thanks to an incredibly successful community sprint back in September, paged content is in! You can find it now in the latest code in our GitHub (or the latest build with our ansible playbook), in our documentation, and it will be a big part of our next Islandora 8 release, coming in early 2020.
Our February webinar will explain and demonstrate how paged content and complex objects are supported in Islandora 8, including integration with IIIF, easy drag & drop interfaces for page order, and multiple viewer options. We will also review versioning support, which will be coming out in the same release.
