Title: XISF Version 1.0 Specification - DRAFT 3
Post by: Juan Conejero on 2015 January 28 05:50:28
A new version of the XISF specification document (third public draft) is now available online:


(you may need to refresh your browser). The entire PIDoc source code is also available:


This version is a significant step forward and, in my opinion, quite close to a final format specification.

Main changes:

- New TimePoint property type.

- Dropped the String8 and String16 property types. All text contents are now UTF-8 in XISF, so there is only a String type.

- New Reference core element.

- Formalization of a set of standard properties of astronomical images.

As always, thanks to the people who are helping me with this project.
