The ISO committee (TC 171 SC 2 WG 8) that manages PDF is in the process of completing its lengthy development cycle. The 4th Draft International Standard (DIS) of ISO 32000-2 (PDF 2.0), will be feature-complete. It will be made available to the ISO committee and members of the PDF Association in July, 2016.
The ISO Project Leaders, and the working group as a whole, are now beginning to consider what comes next. To this end, we are seeking proposals for future changes to PDF from members of the community.
These proposals should come in one of two forms:
These proposals will then be distributed to WG 8 members for consideration prior to the next face-to-face meeting in Sydney, Australia (November 28 to December 2 2016).
It is required that the submitter present their proposal (either in person or via web conference) during the Sydney meeting.
Submissions in the form of initial technical drafts are strongly preferred, and will be discussed first.
The staff of the PDF Association are dedicated to delivering the information, services and value members have come to expect. Staff members of the PDF Association include: Alexandra Oettler (Editor), Betsy Fanning (Standards Director), Duff Johnson (Chief Executive Officer), Matthias Wagner (Operations Director), Peter Wyatt (Chief Technology Officer), Thomas Zellmann (PDF Evangelist).
