Dear EOWG,

We have published the [How to Meet WCAG (Quick Reference)][quickref] 
with a substantial update to tagging as well as some bugfixes.

* **Added tags for WCAG 2.1 success criteria** thanks to a team of EOWG 
participants

* Remove smooth scrolling as it caused more problems than it solved. 
This also reduces flickering when the page loads when the URL has a 
fragment identifier.

* Links to techniques now go to the correct WCAG 2.1 URL instead of to a 
WCAG 2.0 URL.

* Fix bug that left all SCs collapsed when no tag was selected anymore

* Buttons are now properly using `aria-pressed` instead of 
`aria-selected`

* Use text instead of background image for active tags to be more 
adaptable to high contrast mode and other non-background image 
situations

* Clarify that clearing filters won’t reset WCAG version

* Prevent less than one level to be checked

* Improve reliability of the left navigation showing the correct place 
in the document

We’re aware that some updated techniques are not yet incorporated in 
this version of the Quick Reference. We will add them shortly.

As always, feel free to contact me or open an [issue on GitHub][github] 
if you have ideas for features or notice any bugs.

👋 Eric
