[ANN] CSS validator updated

After a few months of very active development and some testing, the CSS
validation service was updated yesterday:
    http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/

Among the changes brought by this latest code is a cleanup of the SOAP
interface to the validator, making it now stable and officially
supported. A WSDL description for the service is being worked on, and
should also be released shortly. 

Another notable addition is a CSS 2.1 profile. If you are writing
stylesheets using the CSS 2.1 (working draft) specification, you can now
specify the profile using one of the "advanced" interfaces of the CSS
validator. Note that since CSS2.1 is still under work in the W3C
recommendation track, it is not the default profile against which the
CSS validator will check your content. 

A large number of bugs are also fixed in this version. The list (62
bugs!) would be too long to give here, so here is a pointer, from our
Bug database:
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/buglist.cgi?query_format=advanced&product=CSSValidator&bug_status=RESOLVED&bug_status=VERIFIED&bug_status=CLOSED&chfieldfrom=2005-06-01&chfieldto=2005-09-15

Congratulations to Jean-Guilhem Rouel who, under the supervision and
with the help of Yves Lafon, is the one to thank for all these new
features and bug fixes. Bravo!

Thanks, also, to all the users of the CSS validator who had provided the
feedback and bug reports. This public list ( www-validator-css@w3.org )
and the W3C public bug database ( http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/ ) are
two of the feedback channels we encourage you to use. The source for the
CSS validator, like all of our validation/qa tools, is available, and we
invite all developers wishing to participate in its development to
contact the Team through this mailing-list.

Regards,
