Multimedia, AV "The Video Electronics Standard Association officially issued its Mini DisplayPort standard Tuesday, based on the technology licensed from Apple. VESA said that all devices using the Mini DisplayPort connector must meet the specifications required by the DisplayPort 1.1a standard, and cables that support the standard must also meet specific electrical specifications. It's a formal confirmation of the news from earlier this year, when VESA announced the Mini DisplayPort connector would be included in the forthcoming DisplayPort 1.2 specification."

mDP features compared to full-size DP

I was wondering, does the Mini-DisplayPort support all of the features current and future that the "normal" or "full-size" DisplayPort connector does? If it does fully support all features, then why is the standard port so much larger?
