Subject: OASIS News--8 Sept 2003

8 September 2003

Welcome to OASIS News, a weekly update of announcements,
accomplishments, and activities for the international standards


SAML, WSRP, and XCBF Are Ratified as OASIS Standards

SAML v1.1, WSRP v1.0, and XCBF v1.1 have been approved by the OASIS
membership at-large as OASIS Standards.
Members of the OASIS Security Services TC, OASIS Web Services for Remote
Portlets TC, and OASIS XML Common Biometric
Format TC are to be congratulated on their work in developing these
specifications. Thanks also to all OASIS members who
reviewed the specifications and cast ballots.

The OASIS Board of Directors approved a revision to the OASIS TC
Process. The revised Process, together with a summary of

XML.org to Launch Focus Area on Localisation

OASIS, in cooperation with the Limerick Localisation Research Centre
(LRC), is preparing to launch a new XML.org Focus Area to showcase the
standards, players, events, and news for the Localisation community.
Members of OASIS have an exclusive opportunity to become founding
sponsors of the new Focus Area. Sponsorship provides a low-cost way to
increase your visibility and receive recognition as a major player in
the Localisation standards arena. For more information, please contact


XLIFF 1.1 Public Review Period Ends 24 September

Members of OASIS and the public are asked to review the XML Localisation
Interchange File Format (XLIFF) 1.1 Committee Draft before 24
September. A specification for multi-lingual data exchange, XLIFF allows
any software provider to produce a single interchange format that can be
delivered to and understood by any localization service provider.
Supporting the entire localization process, XLIFF is product independent
and open enough to allow the development of tools compatible with an
implementer's own proprietary data formats and company culture.



Review the OASIS Media Relations Policy

All OASIS members and their PR representatives are encouraged to review
the "OASIS TC Guidelines for Promoting Your Work" and the "OASIS Media
Relations Policy." These documents describe how members can best promote
their work within the Consortium.
