A.  NOTE: This answer from Sept. 1995 is somewhat obsolete due to the
formation of The Open Group. See "What is The Open Group?"....ksall@cen.com

From OSF's CDE/Motif Program Manager, Terry Landers (landers@osf.org):

"In response to the discussion [on comp.windows.x.motif] of Motif and
"officially supported" APIs ... two areas were brought up that I hope to be
able to clarify.


Standards:
=========
As you probably know, Motif has become an X/Open standard.
The X/Open specification was based on the OSF AES, and going
forward the X/Open specification will take precedence.

As part of the CDE/Motif PST, interface extensions to
the XMotif specification will be proposed to X/Open.

Although it is too early to discuss what will be proposed
to X/Open, OSF members who are interested will have early
access to CDE/Motif functional specifications as part of
the Desktop SIG activities.

Convergence:
===========
OSF has taken the first step in convergence with the release
of Motif 1.2.5.   Motif 1.2.5 merges OSF Motif 1.2.4 with
CDE Motif and defect fixes to the 1.2 code base that were
made in Motif 2.0.

The next step in convergence will come with the CDE/Motif PST
deliverables.

I hope this has helped ... if you have any questions you can
contact me at:
