The update appears in a new post by Johan van der Knijff (National Library of the Netherlands) on the Open Planets Foundation blog.

From the Introduction:

Last year (2012) the KB released a report on the suitability of the EPUB format for archival preservation. A substantial number of EPUB-related developments have happened since then, and as a result some of the report’s findings and conclusions have become outdated. This applies in particular to the observations on EPUB 3, and the support of EPUB by characterisation tools. This blog post provides an update to those findings. It addresses the following topics in particular:

  • Use of EPUB in scholarly publishing
  • Adoption and use of EPUB 3
  • EPUB 3 reader support
  • Support of EPUB by characterisation tools
