LSB 4.1 RC1

As of this writing, there are two known issues with the release candidate:

  • The decision to promote xdg-utils out of trial use was made after the latest draft of the specification; therefore, the current RC spec continues to list it as trial use.

Linux Standard Base (LSB)

The Linux Standard Base was created to lower the overall costs of supporting the Linux platform. By reducing the differences between individual Linux distributions, the LSB greatly reduces the costs involved with porting applications to different distributions, as well as lowers the cost and effort involved in after-market support of those applications.
