Jan 31, 2001, 22:05 (0 Talkback[s])

"The Free Standards Group is pleased to announce the 1.1-beta release of the Linux Development Platform Specification (LDPS). After a two week public review of LDPS 1.1-beta, we will release LDPS 1.1."

"The LDPS is designed so that programs developed on a conforming platform are expected to be portable to all generally available Linux distributions. We recommend that all independent software developers create binary versions of their applications using distributions conforming to the LDPS."

"As one of the efforts of the Free Standards Group, the Linux Standard Base will soon define a base Linux platform that will provide the means to make something like the LDPS unnecessary. Until then, the LDPS provides a set of guidelines to help developers avoid or cope with existing portability problems that will continue to exist while the Linux Standard Base is being completed, refined, and widely adopted."
