Progress on Common Approach to EPUB 3 Fixed-Layout Metadata

January 15, 2012

The ad-hoc group working on fixed-layout metadata held an all-day meeting on Jan. 12, hosted by Sony in San Jose, CA, with representatives from Apple, Adobe, Barnes&Noble, Google, Hachette Book Group / AAP, and Sony. Consensus was reached on a unified framework for representing fixed-layout metadata in EPUB 3. Meeting notes including an outline of the common approach are available here; a more formal specification is being drafted for review by the EPUB Working Group, with the aim to publish as an IDPF Technical Note within February, 2012.
