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
       releases.   The X Project Team produces specifications.  Like X Consor-
       tium 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 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       but has been superseded by DBE as a standard.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.
