    1. Current development status of the UPDF specification and the host implementations
    This will include some demonstrations to the extent that everybody feels confident with the current level.
    Review of command sequences. No more job settings.

    2. Locales
    2.1. Mandatory strings
    2.2. Driver strings
    2.3. New sections: Error messages, etc.???
    Final decision.

    3. Halftoning
    Final decision.

    4. Raster graphic and color
    We have prepared a real proposal.
    Target is to agree to this proposal, probably in a reviewed version.
    Further smaller changes are expected during host implementation, especially in the area of color.

    5. User interface structure
    Do we want that as part of level 1?

    6. Some ideas
    Although not planned for level 1, we think about some ideas from time to time, as there are:
    Interleaving, Hooks, Bidirectional communication.

    7. Outlook
    One more conference considered necessary (Portland?) for technical closure of spec.
    A second one possible with concentration on documentation.
    Finishing procedures, last call, etc for UPDF level 1.
    Business plan for host implementations.
    Elaborated device descriptions from IHV required.

    See you tomorrow
    Norbert Schade
