    Hi Rick,

    Thanks for the timely update to PDF/is. And thanks very much
    for making the effort to align well with the (future) PDF/A
    (500-year archival subset of PDF).

    Both the IPPFAX spec and PDF/is spec are looking very good.

    And the decision last Thursday during the PWG SM telecon to
    move all the Job attributes needed by either IPPFAX or PSI
    from the main IPP Document spec into a separate PWG IPP
    Job Extensions spec fixes our only PWG 'standards track'
    dependency.

    Good work, Rick and Gail!

    Cheers,
    - Ira McDonald

    There's a new version of the PDF/is specification now available.

    ftp://pwg.org/pub/pwg/QUALDOCS/wd-pdfis10-20030506.pdf

    The following changes have been made:

    - Invisible text is now allowed for searching and text extraction.
    - Standard Encryption is now prohibited.
    - Indexed color spaces are now allowed.
    - Grayscale color space is now prohibited (indexed space off of sRGB is used
    instead).
    - Some miscellaneous requirements from the PDF/A specification have been
    added to the conformance requirements.

    -Rick
