1.0.0-RC1 Now Available

I’m happy to announce that our first release candidate for the Sandpiper Framework specifications is now available! Head over to https://github.com/sandpiper-framework/sandpiper-schemas/releases/tag/1.0.0-RC1 to take a look.

While there’s always more to do, this first round of work, encompassing three years of collaboration between and input from individuals around the world, is almost complete. I’m extremely proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish, and grateful to everyone who has donated their time and expertise. When we get closer to 1.0.0-FINAL, I will post a broader announcement and summarize the changes from the preview 1.0.0 release.

Below is a PDF snapshot of the RC1 reference documentation. Please read through it and send us your thoughts, corrections, and questions!
