Daffodil Promoted To Being An Apache Top-Level Project
The Data Format Description Language (DFDL) standard is a modeling language for text and binary data in a standardized manner. DFDL basically aims to make data more portable thanks to providing an open framework for describing any data format.
What became the Apache Daffodil project was first conceived more than a decade ago at the University of Illinois NCSA while it's been an Apache Incubator project since 2017. Now in 2021, it's joining the ranks as a top-level project.
Apache Daffodil is already in use at a wide variety of organizations from major corporations to academic institutes.
