This is really happening! xAPI is so close to 1.0 that we can taste it, like Skittles.

It’s been a great year. We handed the .9 version of the specification over to ADL’s working group just over a year ago. We’ve been working closely with this group of diligent and talented people to get to this remarkable milestone.

The official release for the 1.0 specification is April 26th. Today, ADL has made the spec available for public comment. There are open issues and questions on the spec, which is still actively being worked on. For example, we’ve agreed statement signing will be in the spec, it just hasn’t been written yet. The point of putting the spec up for comment now is to gather as much substantial feedback about it as possible. Making it the best it can be (without the ability to predict the future) as a stable 1.0 release.

You can read the spec here on Github.

You can see the list of open issues that are being worked on here.

If you want to comment, you can do it on Github. If you’d rather not use Github, you can email the spec working group with your comments

ADL put up a post with more detailed instructions on participating, you can read that here.
