    I have just released revision 0.3 (Proposal - Working Draft) of the
    PDF/is specification (formerly "PDFax"). The new version is available
    here "ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/QUALDOCS/pwg-ifx-pdfis-latest.pdf" and
    on the web site.

    Major changes for this release:
    - Format name changed to "PDF/is" from "PDFax". 'IS' stands for
    'Image-Streamable'.
    - All new PDF name extension keywords are now registered with the Adobe
    PDF Name Registry as 'Class 2' names to avoid conflicts.
    - 'Banding' of images on a page was rejected as this concept violates
    the Adobe Imaging Model (See [pdf] Section 2.1.2).
    - Format was modified to be compliant with PDF/X-3 specification.
    - 'cm' operator calculations were incorrect and incomplete. These are
    now fixed.
    - Calculation to determine image resolution is now part of
    specification.
    - Profile letters and numbers have now been replaced with readable
    strings to aid in comprehension.
    - Various minor document cleanup.

    A new version of IPPFAX will be coming soon.

    -Rick
