We completed PR and expect to release cs04 in a couple of month.

It is already final: [VIRTIO-v1.0] Virtual I/O Device (VIRTIO) Version 1.0. Edited by Rusty Russell, Michael S. Tsirkin, Cornelia Huck, and Pawel Moll. 02 August 2015. OASIS Committee Specification 03. http://docs.oasis-open.org/virtio/virtio/v1.0/cs03/virtio-v1.0-cs03.html. Latest version: http://docs.oasis-open.org/virtio/virtio/v1.0/virtio-v1.0.html. And: "OASIS Standards Final Deliverable" means any of the following: Committee Specifications, Candidate OASIS Standards, OASIS Standards and Approved Errata. Naturally, we keep releasing new versions with bugfixes and new features. There's no plan to stop that AFAIK. > Between now and then what parts of the spec are > likely to change, and will those changes be compatible with the current draft? > > Thanks and best regards, > -Wenguang Wang I think that it's unlikely that we'll make incompatible changes in future versions. -- MST
