DPX validator published

We have recently released a lightweight DPX validator, see: https://github.com/Digital-Preservation-Finland/dpx-validator.

Our aim is to use an efficient way to check that the file most likely is an unbroken DPX file.

Our DPX validation tool is currently in use in the ingest validation in our digital preservation services.
