X-bit labs writes VESA is working on the DisplayPort 1.1 standard.
DisplayPort 1.1 adds capabilities to support high bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP) in addition to DisplayPort Content Protection (DPCP) and includes technical enhancements that enable PCI Express design compatibility in DisplayPort devices, a statement by the association claims.

HDCP version 1.3 for DisplayPort will be provided by the DCP LLC. This version, expected to be final in early 2007, allows products supporting DVI or HDMI and DisplayPort to share a common key set.
