The CSS working group has published a new draft:

    CSS3 module: W3C selectors

There are two things special about this draft:

1. It is published simultaneously in English and French. Even though,
as for all W3C technical reports, the English version is normative,
the French version in this case is especially trustworthy, because it
was made by the authors themselves.

2. It is the *last* draft of this module. At least the working group
hopes so. Because if the feedback is positive, it will graduate to a
W3C Candidate Recommendation (CR). On the W3C technical report pages,
the draft is therefore listed under "Last call," meaning last call for

Comments must be received by the 1st of March. Please use this mailing 
list, if possible.

Some explanation about W3C's specification process:

If the comments on the draft are positive, the specification will
become a CR shortly after March 1st. A CR is new category that W3C
introduced last year. It is a Recommendation "on trial": a spec will
remain CR until there are sufficient implementations. Once the working
group decides that the CR has thus proved itself, it collects the
evidence and presents it to the W3C members (during one or two weeks
in which the spec is called a Proposed Recommendation). If the W3C
members agree, the spec then becomes a W3C Recommendation.
