To OASIS members, Public Announce Lists:
The OASIS XML Localization Interchange File Format (XLIFF) TC has recently approved the following specification as a Committee Draft and approved the package for public review:
XLIFF 1.2 Committee Draft Specification
The public review starts today, 2 May 2007, and ends 17 May 2007. This specification was previously submitted for a 60-day public review on 14 July 2006; as well as a 15-day public review on 4 January 2007; this 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review. The only change is to the schemas as follows:
We improved the way the content is modeled for the <file> element by changing from an xsd:key to an xsd:unique on line 1716.
Specifically, we changed the schema from this:
<xsd:key name="K_context-group_name"> <xsd:selector xpath=".//xlf:context-group"/> <xsd:field xpath="@name"/> </xsd:key>
<xsd:unique name="U_context-group_name"> <xsd:selector xpath=".//xlf:context-group"/> <xsd:field xpath="@name"/> </xsd:unique>
This is an open invitation to comment. We strongly encourage feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of OASIS work.
