XISF Version 1.0 Specification - DRAFT 8
« on: 2017 January 21 18:57:35 »
A new version of the XISF specification document (eight public draft) is now available online:

      http://pixinsight.com/doc/docs/XISF-1.0-spec/XISF-1.0-spec.html

You may need to refresh your browser.

The previous draft 7.1 document is also available for reference:

      http://pixinsight.com/doc/docs/XISF-1.0-spec-D7.1/XISF-1.0-spec.html

As always, the entire PIDoc source code of the latest version is available on our GitHub open source repositories:

      https://github.com/PixInsight/XISF-specification

Main changes:

      - Lots of error corrections and bug fixes everywhere.

      - Section 10.5 XISF Data Block Compression has been completely rewritten to include subblock compression, the byte shuffling algorithm, and the LZ4/LZ4_HC compression codecs.

Hopefully this is the last draft document before the final XISF 1.0 specification.

All comments, suggestions and error reports are extremely welcome.
