Bjoern,

The Voice Browser Working Group (VBWG) is now completing its resolution of issues raised during the review of the Candidate Recommendation version of VoiceXML 2.1 [1]. Our apologies that it has taken so long to respond.

Following the process described in [2] for advancement to Proposed Recommendation, this is the VBWG's formal response to the issue you raised, identified as '111-16':

VoiceXML 2.1 implementations are not required to support documents with the version attribute of the <vxml> element set to the value '2.0'. VoiceXML 2.1 implementations are only required to support documents with the version attribute of the <vxml> element set to the value '2.1'. Interpreters that support both VoiceXML 2.0 documents and VoiceXML 2.1 documents (as defined by the version attribute on the <vxml> element) must support the ability to transition from an application of one version to an application of another version. The text in appendix C.3 of VoiceXML 2.1 will be updated accordingly.

Please indicate before 24 November 2005 whether you are satisfied with the VBWG's resolution, whether you think there has been a misunderstanding, or whether you wish to register an objection.

If you do not think you can respond before 24 November, please let me know. The Director will appreciate a response as to whether or not you agree with the resolution. However, if we do not hear from you at all by 24 November 2005, we will assume that you accept our resolutions.

Thank you,

Matt Oshry
Chief Editor, VoiceXML 2.1

Dear Voice Browser Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/CR-voicexml21-20050613/ notes that 

[...]
  Interpreters that support both VoiceXML 2.0 and VoiceXML 2.1
  must support the ability to transition from an application of
  one version to an application of another version.
[...]

This implies that VoiceXML 2.1 implementations are not required to support VoiceXML 2.0 documents, it's however not clear why. Please either change the document such that 2.1 implementations must also support 2.0 documents or such that it is explained why VoiceXML authors might find implementations that only support VoiceXML 2.1.

regards,
