Certification specs 8.07: a complete rewrite
Discussion draft 1 of the upcoming version of software certification specs is now available on DevZone.
This revision is a complete rewrite of the specs. Instead of six separate documents the entire test specification now consists of just six pages. We’ve dropped scores of priority 2 and priority 3 requirements, so everything that remained should now be considered P1, meaning “mandatory”.
We’re also going to give your user documentation and promotional materials much more importance than before. Effectively, the new rule is that you have to keep your promises — if your users can reasonably expect certain functionality to be present in your product and it isn’t, then there’s no way for the product to become Skype Certified.
