JDF 1.7 IP Review,

XJDF 2.1 IP Review

PrintTalk 2.1 IP Review

The initial 60 day review period ends on January 2 2020. Minor technical and editorial modifications may still be applied and will be tracked in the CIP4 issue tracking system:

CIP4 aims to publish all specifications simultaneously, therefore PrintTalk 2.1 is being updated to 2.1 although very few technical changes are anticipated due to the fact that PrintTalk 2.0 has just recently been released.

Thanks to everyone who has invested in making JDF 1.7, XJDF 2.1 and PrintTalk 2.1 happen!

CIP4 is pleased to announce the release of PrintTalk 2.0, the latest iteration of the PrintTalk standard and the first to be based on XJDF 2.0.It is available at: PrintTalk

PrintTalk is an XML standard that is maintained by CIP4 and provides a single format for Print Providers to collaboratively communicate Business Transactions and specifications of Print Products both with their Print Buyers and among themselves.
