Updated Linux Development Platform Specification Enables Easy Portability of Development for Linux

The Free Standards Group has released an updated version of the Linux Development Platform Specification (LDPS), which allows for portability in application development across all generally available Linux distributions. The LDPS is designed to make it easier for developers to create and distribute software quickly, and encourages further development of the Linux-based application market. The LDPS has incorporated a large number of changes and improvements since its 1.0 release, including updates to major components such as the Linux kernel, GNU software, and XFree86. The Free Standards Group recommends that all independent software developers create binary versions of their applications using distributions conforming to the LDPS.
