A current Fedora 6 demo video is now available showcasing recently added features.  In the first demo we demonstrated the use of the migration tools to transform a Fedora 3 on disk representation to OCFL (Oxford Common File Layout). Our second demo showed how you can create RDF resources via the Fedora API and see those resources represented on disk as OCFL Objects. In this third demo Bethany Seeger from Johns Hopkins University joins me to show how to create binary resources and see how they look on disk. We also introduce the concept of Archival Groups: how to create them and how to nest resources inside them.
