Dear members,

we are happy to inform you that OASIS has announced that the
OpenDocument Version 1.2 specification produced by the OASIS Open
Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) Technical
Committee is today entering 60-day COS public review in preparation for
member ballot to consider approval as an OASIS Standard. ODF is one of
the first standards to follow this new procedure within OASIS.

Members of the OpenDocument TC approved a Special Majority ballot to
advance OpenDocument v1.2 Committee Specification (CS) to Candidate
OASIS Standard (COS) level in March 2011, and have met all the
requirements of the TC process for a COS Submission. The declarations
include certification that all schemas and XML instances are well
formed/valid; statements of use; accounts of previous public reviews;
disposition logs; etc. Details of the submission request are available
online for public inspection.

Comments may be submitted to the TC by any person through the use of the
OASIS TC Comment Facility which can be found at

After this sixty day period, which ends on August 22nd 2011 there will
be a final fourteen day vote period after which ODF will be a full OASIS

Kind regards,

on behalf of OpenDoc Society
