The SPC-4 revision containing the changes approved in September has been
uploaded as SPC-4 r07:
For the more adventurous, there is SPC-4 r07a:
SPC-4 r07a has all the technical content found in r07, plus one
invisible and two slightly visible changes.
* The sources for SPC-4 r07a are in FrameMaker 7.2, not the
tried-and-true FrameMaker 6.0 which has been used for several
years worth of SPC-3 and SPC-4 revisions.
* All device-type vs code value tables (e.g, the ASC/ASCQ lists)
have been converted from a column-per-device-type format to a
tab-separated format. This change reduced the source file sizes
substantially, cut minutes off the time required to build the PDF,
and eliminate a bazillion error messages from the PDF Distiller.
In addition, the DTL... letters were squished together more than
was previously possible and the description column grew by a few
tenths of an inch which allowed for fewer line wraps. The total
PDF size shrunk by one page as a result.
* A handful of typos were fixed (e.g., the Description column in the
Diagnostic pages table was headed with 'Mode Page name').
Devotees of how SPC-4 looks will surely want to grab a copy of r07a. The
less finicky may prefer r07.
