As earlier announced, the IPP/1.0 specs have now been published in RFC form.

I want to thank all the participants who contributed their time and talent
to achieve this first set of IPP specifications, as contributors on the DL,
in our phone and face-to-face discussions, in helping to write standards
texts, in the form of prototyping and product development, in administration
such as taking minutes and keeping our web site up-to-date, hosting meetings
and bake-offs, etc. etc.

I would like to specifically call out the contributions from Scott Isaacson,
Tom Hastings and Bob Herriot, who as the main editors of the IPP Model &
Semantics and the IPP Encoding & Transport documents, have had the
time-consuming and difficult job to convert the results of all our
deliberations into strict standards texts, which help developers to create
implementations that actually interwork, based solely on these

You can now download the RFCs from the official IETF library at:
