The IEEE P802.11 Task Group N (TGn), the overseeers of the 802.11n project, approved TGn Draft 3.0 in this week. According to the official status report fresh out of the Atlanta meetings, 240 out of 325 or 85% voted affirmative, surpassing the required 75% required to carry. Several hundred comments, largely editorial and techical clarifications from working members since Draft 2.0, have been resolved. A letter ballot will go out to approve TGn Draft 3.0 as an official 802.11n draft.
Further comments have already been generated by the vote on 3.0 which is typical. According to the IEEE "Comment resolution will promptly continue in a series of authorized conference calls and a three day ad hoc session to precede the next interim meeting in Taipei." FYI, the letter ballot on TGn Draft 2.0 that became an approved 802.11n Draft standard, generated approximlay 740 comments which eventually resulted in an approved TGn Draft 2.05.
It seems like an endless cycle but TGn is calling for a final 802.11n standard in October 2008.
