What's New in Exhibit 3.0?

Exhibit 3.0 offers a powerful, easy-to-use publishing framework for building large-scale, data-rich, interactive web pages.

Building on the success of Exhibit 2, the new version offers two modes:

  1. Exhibit 3.0 Scripted (rc1) for smaller in-browser data sets
  2. Exhibit 3.0 Staged (beta) built on Backstage, for much bigger server-based data sets
