DNG shows signs of being a stable specification

someone else have wored a bit more on the dng format, than we'll see.

One reason that Adobe have given ISO permission to use DNG in a revision of ISO 12234-2 is that the DNG specification is proving to be stable.

There have been 3 versions so far: September 2004; February 2005; and May 2008. But in fact the February 2005 version is good enough even for today's cameras. (The original September 2004 version showed signs of being a bit hurried, hence the February 2005 version).

The May 2008 version adds new features as requested by other software companies, etc, but wasn't needed for new camera details. Specifications provide considerable backward-compatibility so that old DNGs are not made obsolete.

DNG is now used by many cameras and digital backs, and over 200 not-Adobe software products, so it has had a lot of exposure. Many photographers have been using it for a number of years. (I started over 4 years ago). It shows no signs of needing more time before Canon and/or Nikon could use it.
