Avalon integration into Hyrax

The Avalon Media System team is excited to announce the initial roadmap for Avalon 7.0. Our goal with Avalon 7.0 is to offer a full-featured media streaming application based on the modern Hydra stack. To this end, we plan  build on top of Hyrax, offering developers an environment they know and understand and offering administrators the flexibility to run stand-alone streaming solutions or integrate scalable streaming into existing Hyrax/Sufia repositories. As we work toward full-feature parity with Avalon 6.x, we will continue development and support.
