The XSL-FO 2.0 Working Draft published yesterday [1] (latest version
always at http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/xslfo20/) is the first to incorporate
new FOs and properties from the previous “Design Notes” [2] document into
the text from the XSL 1.1 Recommendation [3]. The new WD also features
more extensive linking from FO, property, and function references to their

There are still more FOs and properties from the “Design Notes” to be
included in the next version, plus I would expect more new FOs and
properties to be defined between now and then. In the meantime, it’s still
possible to raise or comment on issues in the W3C Bugzilla [5] to do with
the current WD, the “Design Notes”, the XSL-FO 2.0 Requirements [4], or
even errata for XSL 1.1. See
http://www.w3.org/XML/2008/xsl-fo-bugzilla.html for instructions on using
Bugzilla to report XSL-FO issues.

This WD is also the first publication from the W3C XML Print and Page
Layout Working Group (XPPL) [6] that was chartered earlier this year to
take over the work of the XSL Formatting Objects Sub-Group of the XSL
Working Group.  Anyone interested in joining the new WG should contact
Liam Quin, the XPPL WG chair and staff contact.

Our own Dave Pawson is the editor of the new Working Draft, though
everybody on the Working Group contributed both to the new FOs and
properties and to the editing.
