Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

The Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG) 2.0 has been 
published as a Proposed Recommendation at:
http://www.w3.org/TR/ATAG20/

ATAG 2.0 provides guidelines for designing web authoring tools that are 
both more accessible to authors with disabilities (Part A) and designed 
to enable, support, and promote the production of more accessible web 
content by all authors (Part B).  ATAG 2.0 was developed by the 
Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines working group (ATAG WG).

ATAG 2.0 is a stable document that has successfully passed its 
Implementation period as shown in the ATAG 2.0 Implementation Report. It 
is the last stage before becoming a W3C Recommendation (W3C Standard).

Proposed Recommendations are published when there are at least two 
confirmed implementations of each feature of the specification and it is 
ready for W3C Membership endorsement. Proposed Recommendation and other 
document stages are introduced in How WAI Develops Accessibility 
Guidelines through the W3C Process at 
http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/w3c-process

Comments are welcome by 18 August 2015. Information on how to comment is
