searchRetrieve Version 1.0

There was Z39.50, then SRU/SRW, then A9. now comes searchRetrieve V1.0.
searchRetrieve Version 1.0 is a multi-part specification that defines a generic protocol for the interaction required between a client and server for performing searches.

Part 1, the Abstract Protocol Definition (APD) defines a model and a generic protocol for the interaction between a client and server for performing searches. It facilitates interoperability between different search protocols by providing a common framework and terminology for describing these search protocols. The intention is that all search protocols can be regarded as concrete implementations of this definition.
The 60-day public review has started and ends 14 January 2013.
