This is a special message from Wikitude CTO Martin Lechner concerning the recent advancements in the standardization of augmented reality specifications.
Having been on board with Wikitude almost since day one, I've seen a number of changes within the augmented reality field.

And as with any technology that advances at such a rapid rate, without an industry-wide set of standards, things can become, well, let's just say "complex" at best.
