> Dear Advisory Committee Representative,
> Chairs,
> 
> It is my pleasure to announce that WOFF File Format 2.0 is now a W3C Recommendation:
>    https://www.w3.org/TR/2018/REC-WOFF2-20180301/ <https://www.w3.org/TR/2018/REC-WOFF2-20180301/>
> 
> Based on experience with WOFF 1.0, which is widely deployed, this specification was developed to provide improved compression and thus lower use of network bandwidth, while still allowing fast decompression even on mobile devices. This is achieved by combining a content-aware preprocessing step and improved entropy coding, compared to the Flate compression used in WOFF 1.0.
> 
> All Members who responded to the Call for Review [1] of the Proposed Recommendation showed support or abstained, with several reviewers indicating that they produce or expect to produce products that use this specification.
> 
> All modern Web browsers now support the WOFF 2.0 format for downloadable fonts.
> 
> Please join us in congratulating the W3C WebFonts Working Group [2] on this achievement.
> 
> This announcement follows section 7.1.2 [3] of the W3C Process Document.
> 
> Thank you,
> 
> For Tim Berners-Lee, Director,
> Philippe Le H├ęgaret, Project Management Lead, and
> Chris Lilley, WebFonts WG Team Contact;
> Xueyuan Jia, W3C Marketing & Communications
