Hello Philippe,

The WebFonts Working Group requests approval for first public working
draft of the WOFF 2.0 Evaluation Report. This is a non-normative
deliverable which we are chartered to produce to demonstrate the need
for a WOFF 2.0 and to document the testing that has been done while
developing the WOFF 2.0 Specification. The latter will be a normative
document, and will be published later (work has started on it).

The evaluation report will be updated with experimental results and
discussion as work proceeds, to keep the normative specification short
and clear. The Evaluation Report will eventiually transition to
Working Group Note one WOFF 2.0 Specification becomes a W3C
Recommendation.

Both deliverables are late. As the evaluation report explains, this
was because we pursued a technically promising compression method
(LZMA) which turned out to be unsuitable for standardization. We
therefore developed, from scratch, a different compression method.
