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

OASIS Technical Services Staff Announce Plans for New Upgrades

The OASIS Technical Services team is working now to enhance document and file management functions for TCs. Upcoming changes include
the roll-out of a new document management service and interface and the introduction of an in-house content versioning server. The
document management service will include an official sub-domain (docs.oasis-open.org) for approved TC work products and a new
simple, web-based GUI for uploads. Members are encouraged to discuss these changes and other ideas for improving technical support
via the member discussion list, oasis-member-discuss@lists.oasis-open.org.
