We've been busy!

Though you may not see a lot of changes on our website, the OXDIG group has been pretty busy behind the scenes!  Over the past year members of our group have been actively involved in moving the UDX standard thru various standards organizations with great progress.  Both the ISO and ADA are reviewing versions of the UDX for adoption and/or integration with their respective standards.  Stay tuned and check back for updates.  In the meantime, use our forums to ask questions of the other members or our Technical Working Group - they're continuing to advance the UDX standard thru refinements and extensions that are periodically released.  If you have suggestions, comments, or just need help understanding how to implement a part of the UDX our forums are the best place to go.
