XSTANDARDS(7)	       Miscellaneous Information Manual		 XSTANDARDS(7)

NAME
       XStandards - X Consortium Standards and X Project Team Specifications

SYNOPSIS
       The  major  goal	 of the	X Consortium was to promote cooperation	within
       the computer industry in	the creation of	standard  software  interfaces
       at  all	layers	in  the	X Window System	environment.  The X Consortium
       produced	standards - documents which defined  network  protocols,  pro-
       gramming	 interfaces,  and  other  aspects of the X environment.	 These
       standards continue to exist in The Open	Group's	 X  Project  Team  re-
       leases.	The X Project Team produces specifications.  Like X Consortium
       Standards, these	are documents which define network protocols, program-
       ming  interfaces,  and  other  aspects of the X environment.  Under the
       aegis of	The Open Group,	X Consortium standards,	X Project Team	speci-
       fications,  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 stan-
       dards: internal interfaces of the sample	server;	the MIT-SHM extension;
       the  Athena Widget Set; the Xmu library;	the Xau	library; the RGB data-
       base; the X Locale database; the	fonts distributed  with	 X11R6.4;  the
       applications  distributed  with	X11R6.4;  the  include files <X11/XWD-
       File.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       but has been superseded by DBE as a standard.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.
