In November the ISO committees for PDF, PDF/A, PDF/UA, PDF/E and XFDF will gather in Sydney, Australia for another full week of meetings.
Key subjects on the table include:
This committee will review comments against the final 4th DIS (Draft International Standard) of PDF 2.0. Our objective is to leave Sydney with an FDIS (Final Draft International Standard) in-hand, putting us on-track for publication in the first half of 2017!
The PDF/UA committee will meet following the re-launch of PDF/UA-2. We plan to leave Sydney with an approved New Work Item.
Highlights of PDF/UA-2 include:
The PDF/A committee will discuss a new Part for ISO 19005. Likely changes in the next version of PDF/A include:
Part 2 of PDF/E is essentially complete, and only awaits publication of PDF 2.0
PDF/E represents the state-of-the-art in terms of distributing and archiving engineering content, including 3D content using the PRC format.
