NON STANDARDS

The X11R6 distribution contains sample implementations, not reference implementations. Although much of the code is believed to be correct, the code should be assumed to be in error wherever it conflicts with the specification.

The only X Consortium standards are the ones listed above. No other documents, include files, or software in X11R6 carry special status within the X Consortium. For example, none of the following are standards: internal interfaces of the sample server; the MIT-SHM extension; the Athena Widget Set; the Xmu library; the Xau library; the RGB database; the fonts distributed with X11R6; the applications distributed with X11R6; the include files <X11/XWDFile.h>, <X11/Xfuncproto.h>, <X11/Xfuncs.h>, <X11/Xosdefs.h>, <X11/Xos.h>, and <X11/Xthreads.h>; the bitmap files in <X11/bitmaps>.

The following are works in progress within the X Consortium, and are neither standards nor draft standards: Fresco; Low Bandwidth X; X Keyboard Extension; Record Extension.
