Try here,
http://www.aprs.org/ and look for the following:
"*APRS SPEC! *. APRS continuously evolves. There have been several 
initiatives that have drastically improved APRS network performance and 
useability for users. The original *APRS spec* <doc/APRS101.PDF> was 
updated in 2004 with the *APRS1.1 addendum* <aprs11.html> and since then 
with the *APRS1.2 updates* <aprs12.html>. Most of these new initiatives 
are listed here."

The links are there.

Cheers and 73,
Stan, KC7EHJ
