PAD(R) - Provided by the Association of Software Professionals

PAD(R) is the Portable Application Description, and it helps authors provide product descriptions and specifications to online sources in a standard way, using a standard data format that will allow webmasters and software application librarians to automate app listings. PAD provides a complete content solution for application developers and the webmasters of software catalogs and directories.

PAD Overview -> PAD Repository

The PAD Repository has been moved to the new PAD 4
supporting site,

The ASP had updated PAD Specification from 3.11 to 4.0.
Complete PAD 4.0 platform can be found on as well as on the ASP PAD Site FAQ

If your existing PAD file was part of the old pad repository, you
should upgrade your PAD file to v4.0 by going to Register your company and import
your PAD file using the official PAD v4.0 PAD editing, publishing,
validating and hosting tools. Once your PAD 4.0 has been
published and certified, it will be added to the NEW PAD
