This page is part of the OpenRaster file format description.

Draft OpenRaster Specification

Version 0.0.4

Baseline Intent

Every OpenRaster file is compliant to Baseline.

This intent is for exchange between applications and it is allowed to have custom extensions in such a file.

Archival Intent

This intent is for long-term archival and does not allow any application specific extensions. It places additional restrictions on the Baseline Intent.

  • Still under discussion.

Extensions / Modules

This describes optional features that are not part of baseline. Extensions should have published working code, and be supported in more than one OpenRaster-aware application.

Proposals and Application Specific Extensions

Those might move to the Extensions after discussion. Application developers are invited to create a wiki entry here and develop it. At some point it might be proposed for inclusion to the Extensions through the Create mailing list.
