The Accessibility Guidelines Working Group has published an updated 
Working Draft of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1:
https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/

Highlights of this and upcoming drafts:

  * Today's draft includes additional success criteria that the Working
    Group approved. Further details are in the status section and
    changes are listed at https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/#changelog
  * A draft is planned for September that will comprise the final set of
    new success criteria. The Working Group particularly seeks comments
    on addressing any overlaps between success criteria, and possibly
    reorganizing or renumbering success criteria.
  * In November a draft will be published that incorporates those
    changes from the September draft, and is intended to be the final
    version beginning implementation testing.
  * WCAG 2.1 is expected to be published as a W3C Recommendation by
    mid-2018.
