Since this thread is now about CSS and not SVG, I have shunted it over to 
www-style. It comes from www-svg originally.

CSS2.1 _is_ the second edition. That's what the ".1" bit means. It's short

This is quite clearly stated right at the top of the spec:

# Cascading Style Sheets, level 2 revision 1
# CSS 2.1 Specification
