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/

This draft has all the new Success Criteria that the Working Group plans 
to add to WCAG 2.1. After this publication, the Working Group will work 
to optimize the structure of the WCAG 2.1 requirements. To support this 
work, the Working Group requests wide review of this draft *as soon as 
possible*.

To comment, the Working Group requests input be filed as new issues at:
https://github.com/w3c/wcag21/issues/
or by email to:
public-agwg-comments@w3.org <mailto:public-agwg-comments@w3.org>

Next steps: The Working Group plans to publish another Working Draft in 
November that incorporates the above work plus addresses remaining 
public comments received on this and earlier drafts. Addressing comments 
will become more difficult at that stage, as the group plans to begin 
implementation testing with a goal to finalize WCAG 2.1 as a W3C 
Recommendation by mid 2018, so *comments on this draft are critical*. 
Comments are requested by *10 October 2017*.
