DITA 1.2 became an official standard on 1 December 2011. See http://docs.oasis-open.org/dita/v1.2/spec/DITA1.2-spec.html for information.



Latest information is no longer available in this page

For the final table of 1.2 items, with links to the final version of each proposal, see the Implementation Status page for DITA 1.2.



1.2 tracking information of possible historical interest

The following table lists the items for consideration as part of the DITA 1.2 release.

This is the previous proposal template in DITA format. This template should be used for proposals, along with a new "text for the standard" section to make it easier to update the specifications.

The 'Priority' column includes the priority rankings. Priorities are defined as follows:

Priorities from each member are listed in the table with initials. There is a key below the table. NOTE: hitting enter for a newline within a table will break the table formatting, in both GUI and text mode. When you need a newline, in each mode, type space, followed by the 6 characters [ [ B R ] ]

Items removed from the candidate list for 1.2 should be moved to the 1.3 list. By starting that list now, we should avoid losing any moved or new requirements when it comes time for 1.3.
