In a nutshell the LDPS 1.1 allows for the greatest portability of application development across the largest number of popular Linux distributions. Other events happening at the Free Standards Group include: * The Linux Standards Base, www.linuxbase.org, is now moving forward at a good pace. With engineering support from the open source development community along with IBM, Intel, Oracle, Red Hat, Caldera, SuSE, and others, version 0.6 was released last week and are looking forward to a complete version 1.0 this year. * Though our internationalization standards effort, Li18nux, www.li18nux.net, we are about to launch a certification program with Red Hat 7.0 as our pilot distribution. This will be followed by all the major and several regional distributions which have already signed up to be certified. * By unanimous vote George Kraft of IBM has been elected LSB Technical Committee Chair. George is a software engineer who has been working with Linux since 1993 and on the LSB since 1999. George is one of the unsung champions of open source within IBM. * I'm still the "unofficial" Executive Director of the Free Standards Group... ;) Thanks for your support.
