Dear friends of compression,

JPEG is happy to announce that their mailing lists for communication of existing and upcoming coding standards are open for the general public. In yesterday's executive committee session, we decided to provide access to anyone interested in our standards related activities.

The mailing list I myself are currently handling is the JPEG XT mailing list - this standard is on backwards compatible extensions to legacy JPEG, currently under standardization as ISO/IEC 18477. Thus, if you want to subscribe, please either drop me a line here, or write to

jpeg <dash> extensions <at> listserv <dot> uni <dash> stuttgart <dot> de

Probably include a line introducing yourself and your motivation. Your first message will "bounce" because it requires my intervention to give you access to the list, but as soon as you are subscribed, messages will be automatically forwarded to our members.
