Opencast Matterhorn

Matterhorn was the working title of the Opencast software before the 2.0 release

Matterhorn is now Opencast

With the 2.0 release, the Opencast Community’s “(Opencast) Matterhorn” lecture capture system has been renamed “Opencast” – for obvious reasons. With the kick-off meeting taking place at ETH Zurich, Matterhorn was an obvious choice for a working title for the software. But the name became so popular we never came round to moving to the more meaningful “Opencast” – which was nevertheless present in the “Opencast Community”, driving the further development of – Matterhorn (and some other projects, admittedly). In the end, this was more confusing than some parts of our wiki, so we decided to finally move to Opencast. Still climbing.
