Official MIME type "text/vnd.sosi" for SOSI map data
4th June 2019

Just 15 days ago, I mentioned my submission to IANA to register an official MIME type for the SOSI vector map format. This morning, just an hour ago, I was notified that the MIME type "text/vnd.sosi" is registered for this format. In addition to this registration, my file(1) patch for a pattern matching rule for SOSI files has been accepted into the official source of that program (pending a new release), and I've been told by the team behind PRONOM that the SOSI format will be included in the next release of PRONOM, which they plan to release this summer around July.

I am very happy to see all of this fall into place, for use by the Noark 5 Tjenestegrensesnitt implementations.
