The initial IP review is now completed with no comments received.

The specification IP versions #2 of JDF 1.7, XJDF 2.1 and PrintTalk 2.1 are now available for download at: 

JDF 1.7 IP Review

XJDF 2.1 IP Review

PrintTalk 2.1 IP Review


All three specifications are incremental updates with respect to their predecessor specifications:

JDF 1.7 is an incremental upgrade that contains detail changes with respect to JDF 1.6.

XJDF 2.1 is an incremental upgrade that contains detail changes with respect to XJDF 2.0.

PrintTalk 2.1 is an incremental upgrade that contains detail changes with respect to PrintTalk 2.0.


These are
the second IP reviews according to CIP4s IP Policy:

V. Publication Specification Review: At least 30 days prior to when the CTO intends to declare that no further substantive changes will be made to the working draft of a Specification, the CTO will make a “Call for final changes to the draft.” During that period all Members are encouraged to review the working draft for patent claims that they may hold that are necessary for the implementation of any area of the Specification.

Please review the specification drafts carefully and post comments as Adobe fdf files in the tables at 

JDF 1.7 IP Review,

XJDF 2.1 IP Review

and
PrintTalk 2.1 IP Review

The 30 day review period ends on February 8 2020. Minor technical and editorial modifications may still be applied and will be tracked in the CIP4 issue tracking system: https://jira.cip4.org
 

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!

The QC face to face meeting will take place on January 15 and 16 in Hohenschäftlarn near Munich. For details and registration, please see: 2020-01-15 Munich / Hohenschäftlarn QC Meeting Notes and Agenda.

I hope to see many of you in Hohenschäftlarn so that we can finalize the Quality Control ICS for drupa.

The final Automated Print Procurement - Cus-APP ICS is now finalized and available at: Automated Print Procurement ICS: Cus-APP.

This is the first PrintTalk 2.0 ICSthat has been published. Automated print procurement - either from business to business or from consumer to business has become much easier!

Thanks to all who have made it happen!

I've created a brainstorming page for JSON mapping of XJDF and PrintTalk: JSON mapping for XJDF datatypes

There is also a Jira issue: JDF-716 - Getting issue details... STATUS

The entire discussion is based on the epic "JDF in the cloud"


Although JSON has little additional merit compared to XML, we can't keep our eyes closed and ignore JSON. We definitely neither want XJDF to be ignored (too old school; not JSON...), nor do we want variant translation dialects.

Disclaimer: This is not a decision to actually add JSON to XJDF 2.1 but rather a request for comments.

An updated minor version of PrintTalk has been released. See PTK-264 - Getting issue details... STATUS .

We decided to update rather than create an errata version in order to avoid duplicate implementation efforts this early in the release cycle. The schema for PrintTalk 2.0 has been updated to reflect this change. The value of PrintTalk/@Version will not change and remains "2.0".

Updated schema and specification are available at: PrintTalk

The now obsolete 2.0 version has been moved to: PrintTalk Archive

Room1 and Room2 are just as down as CIP4.org
