The Wireless Gigabit Alliance today announced the publication of its 1.1 specification.

The 1.1 spec "addresses enhancements identified by member companies during the product development process".

The Alliance also announced that the WiGig Bus Extension (WBE) specification is now available to Adopter members. The WiGig Bus Extension plus the WiGig Serial Extension (WSE) enable high-performance multi-gigabit wireless connectivity among multiple devices.

WiGig is finalizing the WSE specification and plans to publish it to Adopters in the second half of this year.

In addition to WiGig’s partnership with VESA for wireless DisplayPort certification, WiGig has become an adopter of HDMI Licensing, LLC to further provide WiGig Display Extension (WDE) support for HDMI mapping.

WDE defines a framework to connect to DisplayPort monitors and HDMI TVs and will be available to Adopters in the second half of 2011.
