What would you highlight as significant developments or outcomes in Digital Preservation over the past year?

In the opening iPRES 2015 session, "Spotlight: This Year’s Digital Preservation Noteworthy Progress and Achievements ", the facilitator and presenters will use this question as the basis for a brief review of digital preservation highlights for the year. A couple examples to illustrate: PREMIS version 3.0 was announced and the next OAIS Reference Model revision is underway. Other examples from the digital preservation community might point to: project results; revisions of standards, tools, or software released; or indicators of program developments (e.g., policies developed and shared, preservation strategies demonstrated). In addition to examples from the facilitators to get things going, a core of the review will build on themes and examples from attendee contributions and tweets from across the digital preservation community in response to this question - please join in! What would you highlight?
