At the February WIMS  Face-to-face meeting, it was agreed that, in line with the standization of the IEEE 1284 Device ID COMMAND SET  entry, it would be desirable to have standard terms  to identify more of the prevalent PDL types and versions. The most reasonable way to do this is to add them to the PrtInterpreterLangFamilyTC in the IANA Printer MIB ( http://www.iana.org/assignments/ianaprinter-mib ) 

It was suggested that JDF, JMF and PPML be  added. 

It was also suggested that new entrys be added to be able to distinguish between significantly different versions of common PDLs. Suggestions were: 

PS2, PS3, PCL3, PCL5e, PCL6 and various versions of PDF ( ISO 19005 [PDF/a], ISO32000 [PDF1.7], PDF1.3, PDF1.5 and PDF/is were mentioned). 

We are soliciting comments on whether these additions are proper and sufficient, or whether there are other common interpreter languages or variations that are sufficiently different from those already listed that should be included. 

Please send your comments to wims at pwg.org .
