XSTANDARDS(7)       UNIX Programmer's Manual        XSTANDARDS(7)

NAME

     XStandards - X Consortium Standards and X Project Team
     Specifications

SYNOPSIS

     The major goal of the X Consortium was to promote coopera-
     tion within the computer industry in the creation of stan-
     dard software interfaces at all layers in the X Window Sys-
     tem environment. The X Consortium produced standards - docu-
     ments which defined network protocols, programming inter-
     faces, and other aspects of the X environment.  These stan-
     dards continue to exist in The Open Group's X Project Team
     releases.  The X Project Team produces specifications. Like
     X Consortium Standards, these are documents which define
     network protocols, programming interfaces, and other aspects
     of the X environment.  Under the aegis of The Open Group, X
     Consortium standards, X Project Team specifications, and
     other specifications are the basis for portions of The Open
     Group's various CAE specifications.

     The status of various standards, specifications, and the
     software in the X11R6.4 distribution, is explained below.

NON STANDARDS

     The X11R6.4 distribution contains sample implementations,
     not reference implementations.  Although much of the code is
     believed to be correct, the code should be assumed to be in
     error wherever it conflicts with the specification.

     The only X Consortium standards are the ones listed above.
     No other documents, include files, or software in X11R6.4
     carry special status within the X Consortium.  For example,
     none of the following are standards: internal interfaces of
     the sample server; the MIT-SHM extension; the Athena Widget
     Set; the Xmu library; the Xau library; the RGB database; the
     X Locale database; the fonts distributed with X11R6.4; the
     applications distributed with X11R6.4; the include files
     <X11/XWDFile.h>, <X11/Xfuncproto.h>, <X11/Xfuncs.h>,
     <X11/Xosdefs.h>, <X11/Xos.h>, <X11/Xos_r.h>,
     <X11/Xwinsock.h>, and <X11/Xthreads.h>; the bitmap files in
     <X11/bitmaps>.

     The Multi-Buffering extension was a draft standard of the X
     Consortium but has been superseded by DBE as a standard.

X REGISTRY

     The X Consortium maintained a registry of certain X-related
     items, to aid in avoiding conflicts and to aid in sharing of
     such items.

     The registry is published as part of the X Consortium
     software release. The latest version may also be available
     by sending a message to xstuff@x.org.  The message can have
     a subject line and no body, or a single-line body and no
     subject, in either case the line looking like:
          send docs registry
     The X Registry and the names in it are not X Consortium
     standards.
