OpenDocument versions history

In October 2011, the OASIS ODF Technical Committee expected to "start the process of submitting ODF 1.2 to ISO/IEC JTC 1 soon".[12] In May 2012, the ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 34/WG 6 members reported that "after some delay, the process of preparing ODF 1.2 for submission to JTC 1 for PAS transposition is now in progress".[14] In October 2013, after a one-month review period for OASIS members, the OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) Technical Committee requested that OASIS submit ODF 1.2 to the ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 (JTC1) for approval as a proposed International Standard under JTC1's "Publicly Available Specification" (PAS) transposition procedure.[15][16] This submission happened in late March 2014.[17] As of 3 April 2014, ODF 1.2 had reached the enquiry stage of ISO's ratification process. As a DIS, it has received unanimous approval by the national bodies in September 2014, as well as a number of comments that need to be resolved.[18] It was approved as an ISO/IEC international standard on 17 June 2015.[19][20][21]

OpenDocument v1.2 includes additional accessibility features, RDF-based metadata,[10] a spreadsheet formula specification based on OpenFormula,[10] support for digital signatures and some features suggested by the public. OpenDocument 1.2 consists of three parts: Part 1: OpenDocument Schema, Part 2: Recalculated Formula (OpenFormula) Format and Part 3: Packages. It was approved as an OASIS Committee Specification on 17 March 2011 and as an OASIS Standard on 29 September 2011.[11][12][13]

OpenDocument 1.2

Since Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) v1.0 was accepted as an ISO/IEC standard, OASIS have updated their standard to v1.1 in 2007. This update includes additional features to address accessibility concerns.[5] It was approved as an OASIS Standard on 2007-02-01 following a call for vote issued on 2007-01-16.[6] The public announcement was made on 2007-02-13.[7] This version was not initially submitted to ISO/IEC, because it is considered to be a minor update to ODF 1.0 only, and OASIS were working already on ODF 1.2 at the time ODF 1.1 was approved.[8] However, it was some years later submitted to ISO/IEC (as of March 2011 it was in "enquiry stage" as Draft Amendment 1 - ISO/IEC 26300:2006/DAM 1) and published in March 2012 as ISO/IEC 26300:2006/Amd 1:2012 - Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) v1.1.[9]

OpenDocument 1.1

Gary Edwards, a member of the OpenDocument TC, says that after ISO standardization, "there is no doubt in my mind that OpenDocument is heading to the W3C for ratification as the successor to HTML and XHTML.".[3] The W3C has not made any public statements supporting or denying this statement, however.

OASIS is one of the organizations which has been granted the right to propose standards directly to an ISO SC for "Fast-Track Processing". This process is specifically designed to allow an existing standard from any source be submitted without modification directly for vote as a 'Draft International Standard (DIS) (or Draft Amendment (DAM)). Accordingly, OASIS submitted the OpenDocument standard to International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for approval as an international ISO/IEC standard. It was accepted as ISO/IEC DIS 26300, Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) v1.0 draft International Standard (DIS), and it was published November 30, 2006 as ISO/IEC 26300:2006 Information technology -- Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) v1.0.[4]

[3] The group decided to build on an earlier version of the

The first to initiate the standardisation of what became the OpenDocument standard was the OASIS meeting to discuss the standard was December 16, 2002; OASIS approved OpenDocument as an OASIS standard on May 1, 2005.
