Dear XForms Community,

The current XForms 1.1 working draft is what we call a "thin spec".  It 
describes the new features of XForms without including all of the text of 
the prior recommendation (XForms 1.0 Second Edition).

Our next working draft of XForms 1.1 will be published shortly, and all of 
the new features for XForms 1.1 are nearly done.  It is also a "thin 
spec".

The working group expects that only one more "thin spec" working draft 
will be needed to complete our description of the new features in XForms 
1.1.  We expect to request publication of this working draft at the end of 
August prior to our next face-to-face meeting.

After that, we will merge the content of the working draft with the 
material from XForms 1.0 Second Edition to produce the "full spec" working 
draft of XForms 1.1.  We expect to request publication of this working 
draft at the end of September.  Note that while the full spec working 
draft may contain many more pages than the preceding thin spec, this is 
not due to a drastic change of material.  The "full spec" working draft 
will contain applied errata relative to XForms 1.0 Second Edition and the 
new features from the thin spec.

Finally, since the "full spec" working draft will not contain any new 
features, there is a possibility that XForms 1.1 will be entered into last 
call status at the time of that publication.  This will be decided at the 
upcoming face-to-face meeting.
