Greetings,

Version 1.1 of the METS Schema has been available for comment at the METS
web site (http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/) since early this summer.  During
this period, the METS board has received no negative response to the
proposed changes.
Accordingly, Version 1.1 of the METS schema is hereby declared the official
version.
Version 1.1 is backward-compatible with Version 1.0, so all existing METS
documents
should validate against the new official schema.  The METS website has been
updated
to reflect that Version 1.1 is the official version.

In other news, there will be a meeting of the METS editorial board on
November 7th
following the DLF Forum in Seattle, WA.  There will be a public period
during the
board meeting for implementors and other interested parties to meet with
the board.
Stay tuned to this channel for further details.
