NAME
       XStandards - X Window System Standards and 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 envi-
       ronment.  The X Consortium produced standards - documents which defined network protocols,
       programming interfaces, and other aspects of the X environment.	These standards  continue
       to  exist in the X.Org Foundation releases.  The X.Org Foundation also produces specifica-
       tions.  Like X Window System Standards, these are documents which  define  network  proto-
       cols,  programming interfaces, and other aspects of the X environment.  Under the aegis of
       The Open Group, X Window System standards,  X.Org  Foundation  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 X11R7.0 distribu-
       tion, is explained below.

NON STANDARDS
       The  X11R7.0  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 Window System standards are the ones listed above.  No other documents, include
       files, or software in X11R7.0 carry special status within the X Window System.  For  exam-
       ple,  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  data-
       base; the X Locale database; the fonts distributed with X11R7.0; the applications distrib-
       uted with X11R7.0; 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 super-
       seded by DBE as a standard.

X REGISTRY
       The  X.Org  Foundation maintains 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 Window System  software  release.   The  latest
       version may also be found at
	    ftp://ftp.x.org/pub/DOCS/registry
       The X Registry and the names in it are not X Window System standards.
