John Morris, creator of the Applesauce project, has released a preliminary version of the document outlining the new WOZ format for Apple II disk imaging.   The format which was created specifically for the Applesauce project, allows emulators to more read the disk images which are produced by Applesauce as well as to write disks in a manner that is more accurate.
