EPUBZone has launched a new Solution Showcase within their Resources Section to assist with the discovery of EPUB tools. Use this new area of the website to search for tools that suit your particular EPUB requirements. To feature your own tools within the showcase, use the submission form to let us know about the functionality and type of EPUB solution you have available.

The International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) and Readium Foundation (readium.org) are in the process of formally launching European Headquarters in Paris, France. The new operation will be hosted by the recently created European Digital Reading Lab (EDRL) which has been formed with the support of the French government and industry stakeholders, with 1.5 million Euros of incremental funding already committed. 

Following on from last year's highly successful event, IDPF@BIBF is a one day conference on August 28, 2015 at the Beijing International Book Fair, focusing on the general trend of digital publishing and readers. Industry experts will look at the current market situation and the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.

IDPF have announced that the new EDUPUB Profile for EPUB, a semantically-enhanced profile of EPUB 3 for e-textbooks and other learning content, is now available for a 30 day public review. Member and public comments on the draft specification are solicited through August 28, 2015 and IDPF members are invited to submit comments via the IDPF EPUB Working Group mailing list
