The latest version of µITRON3.0 is Ver 3.02.00. Changes made since the µITRON3.0 Standard Handbook was released (Ver 3.00.00) are noted in Newsletter No.5 and No.11, as well as in ITRON Standard Guidebook 2.
The ITRON Standard Guidebook 2 deals primarily with µITRON3.0. The earlier ITRON Standard Guidebook '92-'93 remains as a valuable reference for use with the µITRON (Ver 2.0) and ITRON2 specifications, even though the dates in its title are now past.

The workshop, which took place on the last day of the show (Friday the 19th) from 3:15 to 4:45 p.m., was attended by close to 60 people. While introducing the current status of the ITRON subproject, Dr. Tamaru gave a summary of the subproject, introduced data from a survey of Japanese companies taken by the TRON Association late last year and early this year on their use of ITRON-specification systems, and talked about how ITRON is being promoted overseas.
The Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) is the world's largest show devoted to the field of embedded control systems, and is held twice a year, once on the East coast and once on the West coast of the United States. It is sponsored by Miller Freeman, Inc. ESC West, from September 16 through 19, is the larger of the two shows and was chosen for the ITRON exhibits. This year's venue was the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California. Again this year the ITRON Technical Committee used its booth space to publicize the ITRON specifications. As of this writing, a presentation introducing the µITRON specifications was planned for one of the free technical sessions, although the details were not finalized at this time. Another scheduled event, as part of the Embedded Systems Conference Classes, is a course given by Hiroaki Takada on "Realization Techniques of Compact and Low-Overhead Real-Time Kernels for Single-Chip MCUs," centering on the µITRON specifications.
As part of the committee's promotional work in Asia, ITRON seminars were held last year in Beijing and Shanghai. This year plans are being laid to hold a similar event in Seoul, South Korea, around the end of October.
Anyone wishing to know more details about these and other ITRON promotional activities overseas is asked to contact the ITRON Technical Committee.
