Status of the Linux Standard Base

The Linux Standard Base 2.0 is moving closer to release.

Having closed the formal public review process for the latest Linux Standard Base--a working group effort of the Free Standards Group aimed at driving and promoting standards to increase Linux compatibility for ISVs--LSB 2.0 is set to be released soon, according to Jim Zemlin, named FSG director last May.

Zemlin said LSB 2.0 features a revision of the core specification to support modules that are built on the foundation of the core LSB.

"This will accommodate future growth as Linux standards for different vertical markets, for example, are developed as extensions to the core LSB," he said.
