New GDIF + SpatDIF wiki: xDIF

Today I am starting my post-semester activities. Not that all grading is finished yet, and all administrative meetings are over for a while, but we had the last part of the official teaching program yesterday, so now I at least feel that the university summer has started. This means that I will (finally) start focusing more on doing research again, and I have several papers that I will try to finish over the coming months.

But first of all, I would like to officially thank IRCAM for putting together the GDIF SpatDIF meeting a couple of weeks ago. We had a great meeting with lots of interesting discussions. The conclusion from the meeting was that many people think that continuing the development process of GDIF and SpatDIF is wortwhile, and also that there are many things in common between the two formats. To create a base for development, I have set up a wiki at our server, called xDIF (which can also be read *DIF) so that other DIFs can join in as well.

To avoid spam in the wiki, user registration has been restricted, so anyone that is interested in contributing need to contact me to get a user account (please do!).
