The XSL Working Group would like to announce the publication 
of the first working draft of:
  Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) Version 1.1 Requirements
  Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) Version 1.1

The documents are available at:

Here is an excerpt from the Abstract of the RD that explains
the general scope of XSL 1.1:

 Since becoming a Recommendation on 15 October 2001, XSL 1.0 has enjoyed 
 widespread support. However, the user community has expressed requirements 
 that have encouraged various implementations to provide extensions to the 
 language. These extensions--especially those implemented by more than one 
 implementation--are clear candidates for standardization so as to maximize 

 The XSL Working Group has surveyed and analyzed various existing extensions, 
 user requirements, and features intentionally cut from XSL 1.0 due to lack 
 of time. Using the results of this research, the Working Group is developing 
 an XSL 1.1 version that incorporates current errata and includes a subset of 
 relatively simple and upward compatible additions to XSL.

See the RD for a more specific list of features expected to be
addressed in XSL 1.1.

Comments on these drafts are invited from W3C members and the
interested public--see the drafts for details.
